HILLMAN MIN X I HOAD TESTED I #/t STUHT GRiFFiTU B.F. T^HE Hillman Minx *? is a very practical motor car, which has Hie size and perform- ance to meei the re- quirements ot many motoring families. lo size it is a roomy four-seater, with space for one or two more passen- gers for short runs. In performance, it climbs well in top gear, will cruise at 65 m.p.h. all day. and handles excellently on cor- ners. A car which, over this mountainous route, averages 44.8 m.p.h. and at the same time yields 32 miles per gal- lon, must be regarded as economical. When one considers the limited engine size and mod- erate cost of the car. there is little one can criticise about it The only weaknesses which I found were a hand- brake which would not stop the car downhill, and a fuel tank which could, with ad- vantage, be increased for Australian conditions. A number of alterations are incorporated in this new model. The most important is a redesigned combustion chamber, which 1 found, in TEST ROUTE À ...
