Mazda Starts Sales of Upgraded AZ-Wagon

- Enhanced quality feel of the exterior and interior strengthens product appeal -

Mazda Motor Corporation has upgraded its popular AZ-Wagon micromini with a new ‘space utility wagon’ concept. The freshened AZ-Wagon goes on sale today at Mazda Autozam, Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers throughout Japan.

Product improvements are focused on the heightened feeling of quality that arises from a changed exterior facade and interior modifications. The wheel and bumper shapes have been altered, rendering a new-look exterior. A redesigned instrument panel and different materials used for the door trim and seats form a fresh new look for the interior. In addition, fuel economy and exhaust emissions have also improved engine performance for some models.

The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices for the AZ-Wagon series range from 819,000 yen to 1,587,600 yen, including sales tax. The monthly sales target is 2,000 units.
