History of the Sierra

The early cars are getting on a bit now, so you're probably best to concern yourself with 1990 or younger examples. The car was in production from late 1982, so any bugs were well and truly ironed out by then. The range of cars on offer is obviously enormous and quality will vary by just as much. There are three bodyshells to choose from; five-door hatchback, four-door saloon and five-door estate, each with a multitude of trim options. The saloons were officially called 'Sapphire' but the name never really caught on, so don't be surprised to see a four-door car claiming to be an ordinary Sierra.The last cars are generally easy to spot - the front indicator lenses are white, not orange, and remained so until the end of production in 1993 when the range was replaced by the all-new (and much better) Mondeo.
