The new framework was ameliorate weaponed than e’er ahead and a ambit of models featured items such as semblance coded bumpers, het/electrically-adjustable mirrors, four-spot talker stereophony, pollen filters, cardinal lockup, back drumhead restraints, rip arse seating, fog lights, debase wheels, air bags etc..

Might steerage, antilock brakes and duplicate airbags were made received. The saloon and acres versions standard the new midland, but not the full-of-the-moon outside rhytidoplasty.
