I had a 1600E when I was in my twenties, it did get stolen but I got it back.
The engine etc was the same as the 1600GT
They were slow even by the standards of the time, but had just enough pretention to speed/sport with added luxury. What surprised me after having an Escort before was the rubbish steering and brakes.
Dunno about now, For universal aspirations probably some Audi BMW or Benz - actually that’s also probably accurate in terms of triumph of marketing over actual delivery like the 1600E.
