1997 Mazda Capella.jpg

Mazda Capella (GF/GW). 1997–2006 (prod. n/a). 4- and 5-door sedan, 5-door wagon. F/F, F/A, 1840, 1991 cm³ (I4 DOHC), 1998 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 2497 cm³ (V6 DOHC). Last Capella, twinned with Ford Telstar (GF). Very evolutionary changes, with Mazda reacting to the excesses of the early 1990s. Safe, bread-and-butter transportation. Platform from Cronos adapted, but without exceeding the class 5 (1,700 mm width) tax bracket in Japan; consequently, narrower than GE. Same wheelbase, except for wagon, which had an extra 60 mm. Five-door for export. Minor changes in 1999, when diesel dropped from home-market range. More sporting models from 2000. Japanese production to 2002; Colombian production to 2006. Not sold in US, which had a different, and larger, Mazda 626 (1998–2002).
