Both have very similar power as the 1700 was lower compression to meet US emissions standards. It is a Ford engine. Known as the Cologne V4 as opposed to the crappy British Essex V4 2L.|

|16/12/2005 16:51:22||Jay||Thanks Senor Burt! I think it must be a 1500.
|19/12/2005 07:37:22||Richard||The 1980 metalic blue/green cars were 1500cc.|
|19/12/2005 10:23:45||Alistair||Can't remember for sure, but I think the 1700 came in for the US from 1970-74. Sonett V4 to 69 had a 1500, so I doubt they put the 1700 in the 95/96 till after then. Of course, Sonett III only had 1700, from 69/70 to 74.|

The Sonett III got the 1700 engine in 1971 . The 303 cars built in 1970 still had the 1500ccm engine .
