The first home-market Savanna appeared in 1971 and lasted until 1977. It was sold internationally as the Mazda RX-3 and was based on the Mazda Familia. A station wagon version, the Savanna/RX-3 Sports Wagon, was sold for just one year, from 1972 to 1973, when it was replaced by the Luce/RX-4 wagon.
The next Savanna was the first generation of the famous Mazda RX-7. It was sold from 1978 until 1984.
The final Savanna was the second Mazda RX-7. It was available from 1985 until 1992.
