BMW 1600 - 61 points
Jensen FF - 61 points
While still keeping in its product line the slightly smaller but obsolete 1100, Fiat launched an affordable and practical model of 4/5 seats. The boxy 4-door saloon or 5-door estate bodies had no good air drag to boast of, but offered boot capacities from 385 to 570 dm3 in a length of only 4.03 m. Rear wheel drive and live axle, but also 4-disc brakes. 4-speed gearbox. OHV 4-cylinder 1.2 (60 hp) and 1.4 (70) engines; DOHC 1.4 90 hp engine for later Coupe/Spider versions.
