About Mazda 323

Being also marketed prominently as the Mazda Familia and Mazda Protege, Mazda 323 was built by a prominent Japanese multinational automobile manufacturer Mazda Motor Corporation, commonly referred to as simply Mazda, between 1986 and 1994 as a small family car. Originally introduced to the North American market when the Familia/Protege was in the fifth generation, Mazda 323 sedan was finally replaced by the Mazda Protege in North America and the Mazda 323 hatchback was also discontinued after two generations in the 1994 model year.
The first-generation Mazda 323 (BF) was produced from 1985 to 1989 and made its debut in 1985 for the 1986 model year when the Familia/Protege was in the fifth generation. It was offered in two body styles, 4-door sedan and 5-door hatchback and came in two trim levels, base and SE. The sedan also came with a top-of-the-line LX version with exclusive features like a tilt steering wheel, power windows and locks and cruise control. Also equipped with optional power steering, air-conditioning, a 40-watt stereo, cruise control and a manual sunroof, Mazda 323 was powered by a 1.6 L I4 rated at 82 horsepower and power was sent through either a 4-speed manual, 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. The more recent Mazda 323 (BG) was introduced in 1989 as a 1990 model. And it was only available as a 5-door hatchback and Base and SE trim levels. Mazda 323 then got power still from the 1.6 L I4 with the same output. And this engine was mated to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
