    Never seen a Lynx or a Ford badged look-alike of the Protege...Lynx is only sold in some parts of Asia and was never sold anywhere in North America.
    1999-2003 Protege

    They're right! Ford Lynx is Mazda Protege (1999-2003) in the USA.

    It's a ConsumerGuide Best Buy. Even better than Civic and Corollas in some aspects.

    It's Japanese (Mazda), American (Ford), and European styling.

    US version Protege is Phil version 323..they are exactly the same...Ford Lynx is a different breed....Ford and Mazda both shares parts to save engineering costs (therefore, cheaper cars)....shared parts doesn't mean, its rebadged.....you only say rebadged if they are the same cars (interior and exterior) but have different badges.

    Ex. Kia Pride = Ford Festiva
    Mits Pajero = Mits Montero
    Mits Eclipse = Eagle Talon
    Dodge Caravan = Chrysler Town & Country

    Ford Lynx is assembled in our country and other Asian countries as well. That is why if you purchase it here, the nationality is Filipino...but every car manufacture has the so called "Global Branding" nowadays, they built the car to meet local demands and specifications. I wonder what they will think of next...

    taka lang ako bro, bakit ang hirap mong paniwalain na protege yang lynx. hihihi. so you mean there shouldnt be lynx members in protegetech? that we have been wrong all along in letting lynx peeps join our club? kung ganun, my gulay (ala amanda griffin) mind you that one of our lynx members have traded his gauge assembly to a one from us protege kasi nasira niya yung gas needle niya..plus, most engine mods from the us protege are bolt on to the lynx here (may member din na, afaik, nagdadala dito and have installed parts on his rs..)..

    for a little bit more detailed info.. http://www.cardomain.com/id/nekkers if you check his cardomain, even the interiors are very much identical..iba lang talaga yung front/rear fenders, trunk, headlights, tails, bumpers..anything in the middle, basically the same..
