The vehicle has also been sold as the Mazda 616, 626, Montrose, and Ford Telstar, and is closely related to the short-lived Mazda Lantis, Cronos, Persona, Autozam Clef, Eunos 500/Xedos 6 and Mazda MX-6/Ford Probe. Production of the Capella lasted from 1970 until it was replaced by the Mazda Atenza in 2002.
Plain 4 cylinder engines ranged from 1490cc to 1586cc and 1769cc.
The first Capella was introduced in 1970 and lasted until 1974. It was powered by a 4 cylinder SOHC 8-valve engine displacing 1.6 L (1586cc). Bore was 78 mm and stroke was 83 mm. Output was 104 hp (77 kW) and 106 ft.lbf (144 Nm).
