      Another Model Range that I do not have extensive personal knowledge of. Some of the details I write here can be disputed, and I am certainly not writing this as an authoritative work. Users are welcome to submit alterations for review.

      The Taunus Range is divided into 17m (smaller engines) and 20m (larger engines) specifications.

      These were German Fords, and the two models discussed here were the last of the distinct “Taunus” ranges, the next designated “TC” (Taunus Cortina) shared design with the British Cortina range.

      In South Africa however the Taunus sold as a more upmarket range alongside the popular Cortina.

      Taunus P5 (MkIII) 17m was available in South Africa as a 1700cc V4, the 20M was powered by a 2000cc Cologne V6.

      Bodyshell options in South Africa were limited to 4-Door Sedan, 5-Door Estate, and 2-Door Hard Top.
