Launched in the autumn of 1961 Wolseley Hornet is 'up-market' Mini variant, similar to the Riley Elf but immediately recognisable by the illuminated name badge mounted on the grille. Based on the Mini body shell but with extended boots. Mechanically they are unchanged from the standard Mini with 34 bhp 848cc engines and reduced performance because of the extra weight. They has better sound insulation, carpeted boot with top hinged. Wolseley instrument panel is similar to Mini Cooper, with small veneered oval and full width parcel shelf. Seats in the Wolseley are faced with cloth simulating plastic.
New grille with integral flashers in 1500 Series 2.
Wolseley 16/60 Saloon succeeded the 15/60 in the summer and is distinguishable by front end changes, reduced rear fins and modified side mouldings. A larger engine (1622-cc 61 bhp), front suspension modifications with anti roll bar and a new exhaust system are also featured.
