History of the Mazda Cappella model
Serial "Mazda Capella", photos of whichlocated below, began to be produced in the seventies of the last century. A little while later the model was transformed into "Atenza". The car was positioned as a middle class car and had a 1.8 liter engine. 1987 was marked for the Japanese manufacturer by the appearance of an updated version of the popular "Capella". In addition, that the previous engine designers have improved, the buyer has the opportunity to purchase a variant of the machine with a two-liter power plant. As for the drive, it could be either front or full. The first on the planet car, in which the system of four controlled wheels was applied, it was the Mazda Kapella.
Among other things, the car boasteda large selection of body options, including a sedan, station wagon, hatchback and even a coupe. The Japanese paid particular attention to the last of these, in which a large role was assigned to aerodynamic indicators. In this regard, "Mazda Chapel" with such a body stood out against the background of its smooth lines. The car also received large wings and only a front-wheel drive.
In 1997, the next generation saw the lightcar, which was finally the last. In the future Mazda Chapel was transformed into the model "Atenza", which is produced by the manufacturer under the same name and now. The novelty was assembled in the bodies of a sedan, a hatchback and a station wagon, which subsequently did not change for the successor. It should also be noted that the nuance that one of the modifications of the station wagon was the so-called car. For the model, two versions of the engine were envisaged. The first version of the engine was a 1.8-liter "four" with in-line arrangement of the cylinders. In addition, the buyer could make his choice in favor of a two-liter in-line diesel engine, equipped with a turbo. In 1999, the Japanese held a small restyling series, as a result of which the model acquired a characteristic pentagonal radiator grille.
Separate words deserve a station wagon "MazdaThe Chapel. " Reviews of owners about this car testified to his incredible success and popularity. If you compare the modification with the sedan, the designers, albeit slightly, but still increased the wheelbase and the height of the car. Due to this, the increase in the luggage compartment did not entail a reduction in the space for passengers from behind. Moreover, their seats received folding backs and the ability to move forward and backward by sliding. In the case of such a need, they could be folded or removed altogether, which ensured the possibility of maximally productive use of the useful space of the cabin. On the luggage compartment lid, the lowered glass was installed, which at that time became a real curiosity.
In 1998, the engine was renewed forthe Mazda Cappella model. The new power plant was a two-liter turbodiesel, featuring direct fuel injection. In contrast to the model with a motor capacity of 1.8 liters in this case, the car could be not only with the front, but with a full drive.
