2001 Mazda Carol specs
The Carol 600 appeared in the fall of 1962 with a larger 586 cc OHV engine and a longer 320 cm length. It was available as a 4-door sedan in late 1963. The car was called the 'Carol' in Japan, and the '600', 'P600', and 'N600' in other markets.
The Chantez (or Chante) had a longer wheelbase at 220 cm than most of its competitors and boasted the powerful 2-stroke engine from the Porter. Sales halted in 1977, and Mazda did not produce another kei car until 1989.
The Carol name appeared again in 1989 on the Autozam Carol. The Carol was produced for Mazda by Suzuki, and while it used the Suzuki Alto's platform, its interior and exterior were completely unique to Mazda. It was a front or all-wheel drive kei car with a SOHC 547 cc 3-cylinder F5B engine and a 233 cm wheelbase.
New regulations brought about the replacement of the 1989 Carol within 4 months. The new car was 6 cm longer and used a larger 657 cc F6A engine. In 1991, Mazda offered a turbocharged engine, and the car was lengthened to 329 cm in 1992.
