A few days ago, Mazda pulled the covers off of their latest special edition range – the Takuya – that will be exclusively distributed in the UK.
Following in the success of the special edition Tamura range that was sold in the past, Mazda’s new Takuya range – the word ‘Takuya’ is a Japanese translation for ‘pioneer’ - will likewise feature variations for a number of Mazda models, including the Mazda 2, Mazda 3, and Mazda 6.
The entry-level Mazda 2 five-door Takuya Edition will come with a 1.3-liter engine with a number of special edition features, including a set of 16” alloy wheels, front fog lights, and a sports styling kit that comes with a spoiler, sports bumpers, and side skirts. As for the interior, the Mazda 2 Takuya Edition will come with a black sports trim, trip computer, leather steering wheel and gear knob, steering wheel remote audio controls, and a Parrot Bluetooth hands-free kit.

A level above the special edition Mazda 2 is the Mazda 3 Takuya Edition, which comes with a 1.6-liter engine and a variety of features including a leather steering wheel and shift knob, automatic dual-zone climate control air conditioning, black sports interior trim, sports seats, an integrated Bluetooth system, LED lights, a six-disc CD changer, and rain-sensing wipers.
The big-boy of the entire special edition range is the Mazda 6 Takuya Edition, which, incidentally comes in three different variants - a 2.0-liter five-door, a 2.2D 163ps five-door, and a 2.2D 163ps Estate line. Though bearing some striking differences, all three variants still come with standard features, including a set of 18” alloy wheels, a sports grille, and dusk-sensing headlights. The interior of these cars also come with an alloy pedal set, half-leather heated seats, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control air conditioning, leather steering wheel, and a shift knob.
