Mazda Releases Revised AZ-Wagon in Japan

- Features a continuously variable transmission with an auxiliary gearbox for improved fuel economy -

HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation has revised the Mazda AZ-Wagon micro-mini, with models going on sale today at all Mazda Autozam, Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealerships throughout Japan.

(front-wheel-drive model)

 

Upgrades include the addition of a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with an auxiliary gearbox to improve the fuel economy of the Custom Style XS and the XS Special (with CVT) grades by 0.5 kilometers per liter*.

 

Additionally, the turbocharged front-wheel-drive (FWD) model grade now qualifies for Japan's eco-car tax reduction program, joining the naturally aspirated AZ-Wagon models which already qualify.

 

A newly added eco drive indicator supports eco-friendly driving by notifying the driver when the car is running in a fuel efficient manner. The indicator is fitted to all CVT and four-speed automatic transmission (4AT) model grades.

 

Main features of the revised AZ-Wagon
  • The Custom Style XS and XS Special (with CVT) feature a CVT with an auxiliary gearbox that has a low/high two-stage gear set. This improves power at low speeds and increases fuel economy at high speeds.
    (FWD models: 23.0km/L to 23.5km/L. 4WD models: 22.0km/L to 22.5km/L*)
  • CVT and 4AT model grades have an eco drive indicator which supports eco-friendly driving. By monitoring factors such as real-time fuel usage and force acting on the accelerator pedal, a light on the dashboard illuminates when the car is running in a fuel efficient manner.
  • The XG grade is available with a new exterior body color, Aqua Veil Blue Pearl Metallic.
  • Newly designed seat and door trim. The XG and XS special have a calming design in navy blue, and the Custom Style series features higher quality fabrics.
  • The Custom Style XT has 15-inch aluminum wheels and an audio-less specification that allows customers to select their desired audio system.
Improved tax reductions under Japan's eco-car tax reduction program
  • The FWD Custom Style XT (with turbocharger) now qualifies for a 50 percent tax reduction.
  • The XS Special and Custom Style XS four-wheel-drive (4WD) grades have improved from a 50 percent reduction to a 75 percent tax reduction.

 

  • * Measured according to Japan's 10-15 mode test cycle as endorsed by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT)
