Oh, Ford? The bonnet looks rather Kadett E-ish.

Nope, not a Kadett. The Apollo was based on the Ford Orion.

Quote The Volkswagen Apollo is an automobile which was sold in Brazil between 1990 and 1992, when Volkswagen Group and Ford Motor Company shared models in South America in a joint venture known as AutoLatina.

It was a rebadged version of Ford Brasil's Verona, a two-door saloon/sedan based on the European-sourced Ford Orion.

It was replaced by the Volkswagen Logus, which was, similarly, in turn, based on the Ford Orion.

:think: odd, that it shall been based on the European Orion, as that was always a four-door. The larger door is from the two-door Escort. I cannot see anything Orion-specific at this car.

Badge-engineered Ford Verona (modified Ford Orion). One of the children of Autolatina

Ford cogitated to manufacture in Brazil the European Orion, with low trunk and four doors. But in 1989, with Autolatina, Ford created a national and more imposing drawing, with back high, but with only two doors - preference of the market to the time. The GLX version, more luxurious, used the 1800 cm³ VW engine. In 1990 VW presented the first clone of Autolatina: the Apollo, version of Verona with trim differences.
