Third facelift of XD arrived with an all-new front-end styling, revised taillights and a complete cabin makeover.
New seats, a colour-coded dash, and more electronics debuted. The base 90kW/240Nm 3.3L I6 employed improved engine efficiency, although mandatory unleaded fuel (ULP) changes dropped its power output to 88kW from January ‘86.
These are identified by side indicators found in the front bumpers. A rear seat boot hatch and steering wheel rake adjustment were introduced.
