1995 Mercury Tracer Review

Provides overall value and style.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

The Mercury Tracer is a compact four-door car, based on the Mazda 323 platform, which was introduced in 1987 and produced through the 1999 model year. The 1995 design came on the scene in 1991, when the old hatchback Tracer was replaced with both a sedan and wagon. The sedan version is offered in either the base model or the upgraded LTS, while the wagon is available in only one basic trim level.

The Range

Body Styles: sedan, wagon
Engines: 1.8-liter four-cylinder, 1.9-liter four-cylinder
Transmissions: four-speed automatic, five-speed manual
Models: Mercury Tracer, Mercury Tracer LTS

What's New

The 1995 Mercury Tracer includes a passenger airbag for the first time this year. An integrated child seat is now offered as an optional safety feature. The new Trio package is introduced as well, offering a number of the most popular features from the LTS at a budgeted price. This includes the spoiler, aluminum wheels, and leather steering wheel.

Exterior

The 1995 Mercury Tracer’s small, geometric body is very typical from the 1990s. Available as either a wagon or a sedan, it sits on 14-inch wheels. Standard exterior features include tinted glass and intermittent windshield wipers. Optional on the base sedan and wagon include alloy wheels, a rear window defroster, and power exterior mirrors, which are all standard on the LTS. A rear spoiler, optional on the base sedan, is also included on the LTS sedan.

Interior

The 1995 Mercury Tracer’s cabin is not exceptionally roomy, particularly in the rear seat. Trunk space isn’t very generous either. All models come with cloth seating. Other base-level interior features include bucket seats, a center console, tachometer, and AM/FM audio system. The LTS also comes with cruise control and a cassette player, both of which are additional options on the base model. Other optional features include air-conditioning, a CD player, and a child seat.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Mercury Tracer base model houses a 1.9-liter, four-cylinder engine, while the LTS runs with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder. Five-speed manual transmission is standard, and a four-speed automatic is optional on all models. Power is as limited as one would expect with such a small engine, and performance is not impressive. Braking is nice and reliable, though, and this little car does well enough for trekking around town.

Safety

The 1995 Mercury Tracer includes both driver and passenger front airbags, while four-wheel anti-lock brakes are optional on the LTS model only. Power door locks are optional on the base-level model. The wagon offers an optional anti-theft alarm system.
