Pushed to the top of the pile. I would suggest that M-B may not care to have the negative comments about this vehicle brought to the attention too much.

All four versions drive the rear wheels through seven-speed automatic transmissions, though the hybrid is available with all-wheel-drive. 

French manufacturing of 1510, Alpine and Solara, along with the smaller Horizon , ended in 1986. In the United Kingdom the last cars were rebadged as the Rapier and Minx which were badged depending on trim level rather than body style. Production of the Alpine, Solara and Horizon models had already finished at Ryton in the autumn of 1985 to make way for the Peugeot 309 . The names were sourced from the corporate ancestor of Chrysler Europe, the Rootes Group , having been used on the Sunbeam Rapier and Hillman Minx . Supply of these models was limited and in 1986 production ceased, with the Talbot marque being shelved soon afterwards on all passenger vehicles. Thus, the Alpine/1510/Solara series was not directly replaced; however the Citroën BX (already released in 1982) and the forthcoming Peugeot 405 (launched in late 1987) were effectively its de facto successors as PSA's entries in the D-segment . Both of these cars were very successful in Europe, and helped Citroen and Peugeot increase their market share in the UK and many other export markets.
