Over the years, Mercury sold numerous models under the Capri name. First, it was just a trim level on a regular Mercury sedan. Next, it was a re-badged Ford Capri from Europe. But in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, it was the Mercury version of a Fox-bodied Mustang. Interestingly, in 1991 it was a new and separate model.
In 1991 to 1994, they assembled the Mercury Capri in Australia on a Mazda 323 base, selling it in the U.S. This cool-looking two-seater roadster had a 1.6-liter engine and front wheel drive. Despite being a decent car in all aspects, it failed to gain any popularity, so they withdrew it from the market in 1994.
