1981-1986 Mazda Luce
Production Period: 1981-1986
The 1981 Luce was the third of the model range equipped with a rotary engine, although a 2000cc four-cylinder unit was also offered. Hitting the market at the same time as the third-generation Cosmo, the 12A-powered Luce offered the same four-wheel independent suspension and was avaliable in both four-door sedan and hardtop versions. In the later years of its production the car underwent significant facelifts, and the new top-end models (luxury cars by all accounts) were specced with either a 12A turbo engine from the RX-7, or a 13B with Dynamic Supercharger.
