Also known as the Mazda Familia in Japan, the Mazda Protege has gone
through various forms and various names. Like in South Africa, this
vehicle is known as the Mazda etude. In truth, the Mazda Protege, the
Mazda GLC, and the Mazda 323 is just one vehicle. They are one and the
same. Changes had only been made to its name and of course, there were
little furnishings here and there. However, for most, all these point to
one vehicle which is the Mazda Protege. These Mazda Protege vehicles are
built in Japan. However, the assembly is done on various countries which
include Taiwan, Malaysia, South Africa, Colombia, and in New Zealand.

The Mazda Protege is a subcompact car that is produced by the Mazda Motor
Corporation which has its headquarters in Hiroshima, Japan. This vehicle,
has been introduced to the United States. To actually tackle information
about the Mazda Protege per se, it would be quite a difficult task for
there are areas which overlap each other. The name Mazda Protege actually
was used starting from 2004. Come the year 2004, use of this name was
stopped and was later on replaced by the Mazda 3 which was actually a
Ford based vehicle line. That might be the fact behind the Mazda 3,
however, Mazda still did give some contributions to this.

Because the Mazda Protege was built in Japan, it was actually sold much
more expensive than its competitors which were the Toyota Corolla and the
Honda Civic. And since its introduction, it became a favorite among US
car magazines. This was due to the Mazda Protege’s reputation for
bearing, delivering, and providing a spirited handling. This vehicle was
the very first small Japanese car to cross over to the EPA “compact”
class. Later on, the Mazda Protege became the basis of other vehicles
like the Ford Laser and the Ford Meteor which were actually marketed in
Asia, and Australia, and also the For Escort which was also marketed in
the United States and the rest of North America.

The Mazda Protege was also known to boast of a European-inspired styling.
Aside from having a spirited handling, the Mazda Protege also holds a
very comfortable interior, a smooth driving experience as well as
grandiose features. It was made available in three trim levels which
comprised of the ES, the LX, and the DX. The ES came equipped with a 1.8
liter engine with four cylinders. It was capable of providing 122
horsepower, and the trim level also held bigger front disc brakes and
quality standard equipments. As per the other two trim levels, the LX and
the DX, both were powered by the very same 1.6 liter engine with four
cylinders. It was very much capable of creating an output of 105 units of
horsepower. For all three trim levels, made standard was a five speed
manual transmission system and given as an option was a four speed
automatic transmission system. Other features for this vehicle include
