The 1998 Mercury Tracer underwent very few changes after it was redesigned last year. The only notable change is the addition of newly-depowered airbags. Minor changes include a larger center console inside the car.
The 1998 Mercury Tracer is a compact car manufactured by Ford Motor Company and sold under its Mercury division. The car was based on the same platform as the Mazda 323, and it was launched as a replacement for the more European Mercury Lynx. The Tracer was first introduced in 1987 as a 1988 model car. It was a rebadged Ford Laser, which in turn was a restyled Mazda 323. The car received its latest major redesign last year, but retained the same platform that it was based on before.

The 1998 Mercury Tracer has a more maturely-designed exterior than its previous generation, especially after it received a revised front-end fascia, restyled taillights and reflectors, and door handles last year. The Tracer has fewer cut-lines and gets a more polished look. The exterior of the Tracers serves more than just a cosmetic purpose- it solves the problems of vibration and body stiffness in the earlier model with its one-piece construction, use of stiffer stabilizer bars, and the addition of a cross-car beam.
