MAZDA CAPELLA 616

2-door/4-door 4-seater saloon/ coupé.

Running alongside but eventual successor to, 1500/1800 models, with rather rounded style more acceptable to European eyes. Strictly conventional engineering, with rigid rear axle and choice of manual or automatic transmissions. No character, except for full equipment and Japanese reliability. Classical Japanese 'grey porridge'. No UK imports of saloons 1973-75, no coupés after 1974.
