Morgan Plus 4 Car Reviews

The Morgan Plus 4 has been around since 1950 and Morgan has done little to change it over the past 62 years. It looks great, but it feels its age and can't hope to compete with more modern cars.

Morgan Plus 4 2.0 Sport 2 seater 2dr - April 2012
Morgan seem to have been making this car for decades, and although the retro looks may not be to everyone's taste, it is certainly distinctive, and with the low production volumes of the car it can...

Morgan Plus 4 Overview

The Plus 4 is equipped with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ford engine mated to a Mazda gearbox. It only produces 142bhp but raw power is not what this car is about. It's fun to drive in an olde-worlde sort of way but you get very little in the way of comfort. The suspension is rock hard, refinement is almost non-existent and there's no boot. However, if you've got your heart set on a Plus 4, these niggles are unlikely to colour your decision.

Background

The Plus 4 was first introduced at the 1950 Earl's Court Motor Show and was originally fitted with the 2.0-litre engine from a Standard Vanguard. From 1956, it was fitted with the engine from a Triumph TR3 and from 1962, with the engine from a TR4. The Plus 4 was relaunced in 1985 with a 2.0-litre Fiat engine and from 1988, with a Rover engine. Production continued until 2000. In 2004, the Plus 4 was again resurrected, this time with a Ford engine.

Summary

The Morgan Plus 4 is a car you buy with your heart, not your head. It looks great and offers wind-in-your-hair thrills, but it's past its sell-by-date and there are much better cars around for the money.
