This week Ford announce a new Cortina, but it is a new model that will take more than a quick glance to distinguish it from its predecessor. The Cortina 80 as Ford call their new car is one of the company's famous mid-term tidy-ups: making detailed revisions to a car that is at the very peak of its popularity.
