About the 1988 Mazda 929

During production of the 626, the Mazda 929 made its debut in 1973 and ran until 1995. Unlike the 626, the 929 evolved from a mid-size car into a full-size car by the end of its production. This family car offered more engine options than the 626 and earlier models were offered as two-door coupesfor buyers of all ages. The pop-up lights of the first generation models were reminiscent of Honda Accords at that time.

Under the hood of the fifth generation Mazda 929 is a 3.0 liter V6 engine that comes standard on every model. It produces 185 horsepower and 200 foot-pounds of torque and has a 4-speed automatic transmission. Unlike the 626 that was assembled in various parts of the world by the end of its production, the Mazda 929 was assembled in Hiroshima, Japan, for the duration of its life. As the 929 evolved into a full-size car, the optional body styles were dropped to make room for a full lineup of 4-door sedans.

Under the hood of the fifth-generation Mazda 929 is a 3.0-liter, V6 engine that comes standard on every model. It produces 185 horsepower and 200 foot-pounds of torque and has a four-speed automatic transmission. Unlike the 626 that was assembled in various parts of the world by the end of its production, the Mazda 929 was assembled in Hiroshima, Japan, for the duration of its life. As the 929 evolved into a full-size car, the optional body styles were dropped to make room for a full lineup of four-door sedans.

Five generations of the Mazda 929 were produced until 1995. The first generation began in 1973 with a two-door coupe, four-door sedan and five-door station wagon. The 1.8-liter, I4 engine was available on the base model, while a larger 2.0-liter I4 was available as an upgrade. By the third generation in 1986, the 929 dropped the coupe and station wagon body styles and focused on the four-door sedan. The base engine was now the 2.0-liter I4 and the 3.0-liter V6 was offered as an upgrade.

On the exterior, the shape of the fifth generation 929 was much longer than previous models and was given revised headlamps and taillights, a new grille and redesigned side mirrors and wheels. Even with an improved interior and newly added legroom, the 929 was unable to increase sales and was replaced by the newest sedan in the Mazda lineup, the Millenia.

Fortunately, buyers of the Mazda 929 were not shortchanged on engine options for the previous four generations. During the fourth generation, four different V6 engines were available. The JE V6 produced 160 horsepower, while the JE26 V6 produced 205 hp; this was a drastic difference and gave the large, full-size 929 the extra power it needed when carrying a large family. The Mazda 929 carried on production for two more years in Japan and was finally discontinued in 1997 with the introduction of the Millenia.
