Mazda AZ-Wagon XS Special Launched in Japan

Mazda today announced the availability of a new special edition AZ-Wagon which goes on sale today at all Mazda Autozam, Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers throughout Japan. The car is based on the AZ-Wagon XS micro-mini and comes with multiple feature enhancements in both the interior and the exterior.

The special features available for the AZ-Wagon XS Special include colored door mirrors with embedded LED turn signals, fully automatic climate control system with a catechin-coated air filter that removes allergens, black chrome rings on the air conditioner side vents, chrome inner door handles, ambient temperature display on the air conditioner panel, tachometer, leather-wrapped steering wheel, driver’s side seat lift, tilt steering wheel and six speakers (two front, two rear and two tweeters).

There will be a choice of five body colors, Pearl White, Silky Silver Metallic, Bluish Black Pearl 3, Luna Gray Pearl Metallic, and Mysterious Violet Pearl.

The XS Special will be priced at 1,197,000 yen ($12,374) with sales tax for the 4-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive and at 1,314,600 yen ($13,590) for the four-wheel drive version. Both models are equipped with the same 660 DOHC VVT engine mated to either a 4-speed automatic unit or a CVT.

Common thing among automakers during these difficult recession times, Mazda praises the whole range for its engines, claiming the powerplants have been especially optimized to achieve the lowest possible fuel consumption and reduce CO2 emissions. Official figures are not available at this time but the manufacturer expects the improved fuel economy to be one of the main things that would attract buyers in dealerships.
