The Mercury Bobcat was introduced in 1975 as a twin to the Ford Pinto and was Mercury's first-ever subcompact car. Styling differed from the Pinto with larger taillights, separate parking lights, a taller Lincoln-esque grille and somewhat fancier interior and exterior trim. 3-door hatchback and wagon bodystyles were offered - Mercury would not offer the 2-door "sedan" bodystyle on the Bobcat. Styling remained virtually unchanged until a substantial facelift in 1979, and would be dropped after 1980. The Bobcat would be replaced by the 1981 Lynx.

See the separate Ford Pinto entry for more information about the Mercury Bobcat.
