1999 Ford Laser LXi 5-dr hatch Car Review


DESPITE some earnest work on both front and rear ends, there is no questioning the Ford Laser's connection with the latest Mazda Astina.

Inside, only the badges advise you which car you are driving.

The Laser is a well-packaged car with peppy engines and an intriguing standard equipment choice - air-conditioning and driver's airbag are there but there are no power windows or mirrors, or central locking.

Model release dates: March 1999 - August 2002

March 1999End date:

The front-drive, Mazda 323-based Laser once ruled the small car class.

The move to full importation shifted Ford's focus away from the car as a volume seller.

Three and 5-door hatch, and a 4-door sedan were offered.

Two twin-cam 4-cylinder engines were available - a 1.6-litre and a 1.8-litre.
