Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Driving -

The Stan­dard Ten was de­signed to pro­vide com­fort­able daily driv­ing at a com­pet­i­tive price. It’s not ex­actly quick, but still great fun to drive, with a spa­cious in­te­rior and im­pres­sive econ­omy that can eas­ily top 47mpg.

Stan­dard val­ues tend to be lower than they are on many ri­vals, but their charm­ing char­ac­ter and fun driv­ing quirks are be­gin­ning to gain wider recog­ni­tion, mean­ing that prices are qui­etly creep­ing up.

Tri­umph’s ac­qui­si­tion of Stan­dard – that, and the launch of the new Her­ald – may have left the Ten some­what in the shad­ows, but these mod­est sa­loons are fun, eco­nom­i­cal and en­tirely de­serv­ing of greater recog­ni­tion.
