Mazda Releases Partially Remodeled Verisa in Japan
Mazda Motor Corporation introduces the partially remodeled, “simple, quality and compact” Verisa, which goes on sale today at Mazda, Mazda Anfini and Mazda Autozam dealers throughout Japan.
Verisa’s remodeling highlights include model lineup changes. The newly established L-model features leather equipment, which used to be the “leather package” factory-installed option. Now gaining a large armrest for the driver’s seat as standard equipment, the C-model keeps the same price as the prior standard model. This expanded lineup can accommodate user’s wide-ranging needs.
Mazda has also freshened the Verisa’s interior and exterior colors. The crisp Icy Blue Metallic and stylish Velocity Red Mica colors are added as body paint options. A chic beige is also newly available for the C-model’s interior, and along with the current olive option, customers now have two interior color options to choose from.
In addition to current equipment such as an immobilizer and water-repelling glass treatment, the new package features automatic headlights and rain-activated wipers. A combination of 16-inch alloy rims with 195/45R tires (for the FWD model only) is also a new manufacturer’s option to enhance the Verisa’s comfortable and stylish feel.
Fuel economy has also been improved: the FWD model can be driven 18.2 kilometers per liter of gasoline, and the e-4WD model gets 17.2 km per liter using Japan’s 10/15 mode test. All models exceed Japan’s 2010 fuel consumption standard by 5 percent. Verisa has been certified as SU-LEV compliant (the 2005 Emissions Standard 75 percent Reduction Level) for all models, and thus meets the highest “Green Tax” standards. This means that Verisa owners qualify for a 32,000 yen reduction of the automobile tax and the automobile acquisition tax.
