2008 Mazda Atenza
All-new Mazda Atenza, scheduled for imminent market introduction, embodies Mazda’s latest car-making philosophy: Zoom-Zoom Evolution. Along with enhanced environmental and safety performance, the new model has a more emphatic Mazda character in its design, dynamic performance, packaging and craftsmanship. It delivers the best high-speed long-distance touring experience, thanks to dynamic high-speed performance with class-leading aerodynamics, supported by leading-edge safety features and excellent driving characteristics.
Three body types are offered: 4-door sedan, 5-door hatchback (Sport), and station wagon (Sport Wagon). The new MZR2.5L gasoline engine—developed from the current MZR2.3L gasoline unit—yields more torque in the frequently-used range, more linear response and acceleration feel, as well as more economical operation. Exterior and interior design create a sporty character along with an emotion–pleasing, premium feel.
At the Tokyo Motor Show, a bold new sportier version with large front and rear aero bumpers, sporty grille and side spoilers is displayed for the first time. The vehicle also features advanced safety technology including an Rear Vehicle Monitoring system, a first for a Japanese vehicle, and CF-Net (Cross Functional-Network) multi-control system which provides integrated control of audio, climate control and other systems through simple, smooth operation that minimizes movement of the driver’s line of sight.
