"A model that was popular in North America, but only known to a few in its home country of Japan."
The Mazda Familia Saloon/Sport was sold as the Mazda Protegé in the US.
The success of compact cars was vital to a car maker, especially if it wanted to survive in the U.S., and Mazda's ace-in-the-hole was the Familia, or the car we knew as the Protegé. In June 1998, the ninth-generation Familia was introduced, with the model of choice being the Sport 20 that was added to the series in December 2001. The Sport 20 belonged to the same S-Wagon grade as the previous Familia series, but in an attempt to improve the lineup, a model similar to the sedan class was added.
Powering the Sport 20 was a 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4 that produced 168 HP at 6800 rpm and 133.0 ft-lb of torque at 5000. This engine received the G-LEV certification (Good Low Emission Vehicle) in September 2002 after being slightly detuned to 163 HP at 6800 rpm and 130.9 ft-lb of torque at 5000 rpm. Coupled with an "activematic" 4-speed automatic transmission, the Sport 20 behaved like a true sports sedan on the streets, thanks in part to its taut suspension.
The exterior also underwent some changes, getting discharge headlamps, new aerodynamic parts, larger fog lamps, and white turn-lenses. The cabin also evolved, adopting a sporty black interior design. Being originally part of the S-Wagon grade, the Familia Sedan Sport 20 became renowned in Japan and in America when it arrived as the new Protegé.
