1987 Ford Telstar.jpg

Ford Telstar (P443/GD/AT/AV). 1987–96 (prod. n/a). 4- and 5-door sedan, 5-door wagon. F/F, F/A, 1587, 1789, 1998, 2184 cm³ petrol, 1998 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 1789, 1998 cm³ (I4 DOHC). Mk II Telstar, introduced alongside Mazda Capella (GD), and with a stronger resemblance to the donor vehicle. Station wagon for the first time from 1988, but sold only in Japan and New Zealand; sedans appeared more mature, larger. Five-door still called TX5. DOHC and four-wheel-drive models for this generation, as well as a larger 2·2-litre unit. Improved on its predecessor in terms of quality and refinement, but more of a domestic appliance. Four-door replaced in Australia by Ford Corsair in 1989. Elsewhere, sedans went to GE platform in 1991; GD wagon to 1994, when it was replaced by GV series.
