Mazda Releases Upgraded Bongo Series and Titan Dash in Japan

- These models deliver improved user-friendliness through enhanced features and comply with new long-term emissions regulations -

HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation has announced the introduction of the partially remodeled Bongo van and truck, Bongo Brawny van and Titan Dash truck. All four models go on sale today at Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealerships throughout Japan. The Bongo van and Bongo truck are also available at Mazda Autozam dealerships.

 

Due to improved exhaust purification systems, the Bongo van and truck, Bongo Brawny van and Titan Dash now all comply with Japan’s new long-term emissions regulations that were adopted in 2005. The Bongo van and truck are the first light commercial vehicles with a load capacity under one ton to meet these regulations. The new Bongo and Titan models also meet the Law Concerning Special Measures for Total Emission Reduction of Nitrogen Oxides and Particulate Matter from Automobiles in Specified Areas, which enables them to be sold and registered anywhere nationwide, including Japan’s three major cities (Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka). Additionally, the diesel engine grades offer improved fuel efficiency, further reducing their environmental impact and improving cost efficiency.

 

In response to customer demand, the updated Bongo truck now comes equipped with enhanced user-friendly features. Power windows and door locks are standard equipment on all grades. Improved safety is also among the highlights of these refreshed models; a passenger airbag is standard equipment on the Bongo van GL Super grade and available as a factory-installed option on all other model grades.

Main features of the upgraded Bongo series and Titan Dash

Enhanced environmental performance
