This was the Hampshire’s replacement and in keeping with Austin’s styling policy it’s very much an inflated Somerset. Indeed it can be difficult to tell those two cars apart when they’re not side-by-side. They even share the same doors and rear wings. For at-a-glance recognition look out for the raised pressing around the front wheelarches and the full-width ‘whiskers’ below the grille. There’s an improvement in power, but 68bhp is still disappointing from 2.2 litres. They are also quite thirsty and you don’t buy one for its handling.
