Additional information on the Austin Allegro L
“The Allegro 3, introduced at the end of 1979, used the “A-Plus” version of the 1.0 litre A-Series engine (developed for the forthcoming new Metro), and featured some cosmetic alterations in an attempt to keep the momentum going, but by then the Allegro was outdated, competing against the relatively high-tech Ford Escort Mark III and Vauxhall Astra, both launched within a year of the Allegro’s facelift.
After 1980, it failed to feature in the top 10 best selling new cars in Britain, barely a decade since its predecessor had been Britain’s most popular new car, though this fall in sales was compensated for by the large sales figures achieved by the smaller Metro, and as well as that the slightly larger Triumph Acclaim was among Britain’s top 10 selling cars by 1982.”
