News Flashes

The first UK-produced versions of the Talbot Horizon rolled off the French-owned company's production lines at Ryton, Coventry, last week with advance orders for the car worth £12 million. Peugeot, Talbot's French parent has invested £10 million in switching Horizon production from Poissy in France to Coventry. The move is hoped to double sales of the five-door hatchback range in the UK this year, with the main attack being at the fleet market. British fleet buyers have tended to buy from home manufacturers in the past.

[On the 1.9 Diesel] It probably reflects more on the fast fading charms of the Horizon rather than the powerplant itself that the car feels, subjectively at least, less lively than the VW or Vauxhall diesels. For the fact is that once you acclimatise to the heavy throttle action and ponderous steering of the Horizon the PSA diesel really does perform. And unlike VW's oil burner it does not vibrate.
