The second incarnation of the Cortina was designed by Roy Haynes, and launched on 18 October 1966, four years after the original. Although the launch was accompanied by the slogan "New Cortina is more Cortina", the car, was fractionally shorter than before, and its 2 1⁄2 inches of extra width and curved side panels provided more interior space. Other improvements included a smaller turning circle, softer suspension, self-adjusting brakes and clutch together with the availability on the smaller engined models, for the UK and some other markets, of a new five bearing 1,300 cc engine. The Cortina Lotus continued with its own unique engine, although for this generation it was built in-house by Ford themselves.
