Drive System:

The revised and more conventional three-box styling of the Phase II Vanguard may lack some of the character of the original, but it does provide better headroom and something in the region of 50% more luggage space. Getting in and out is easier too, as the front doors are longer. Suspension is stiffer, but the anti-roll bar has been deleted, so despite wider tyres the handling is still not a Vanguard strong point. With this car, Standard also became the first British manufacturer to offer a diesel engine (with a claimed 37mpg), though surviving examples are rare.
