Get the full story on a new set of special edition vehicles available in the UK from Mazda. Pictures and details inside.
Mazda is releasing three special editions for the UK market this summer. Named for the Japanese word for "pioneer", the Mazda2 Takuya, Mazda3 Takuya, and Mazda6 Takuya went on sale beginning July 1.
Like last year's Tamura edition of the models, each of the Takuya cars include a bevy of added equipment. All three cars get Bluetooth, electric rear windows, fog lights, leather gear shift knob, leather steering wheel, and metallic paint, but that is only part of the package.
The Mazda2 is also fitted with an aerokit, body-coloured heated electric folding side mirrors, 16-inch alloys, multi-function steering wheel, and a black sports trim. Similar features are seen on the Mazda3, which gets 17-inch wheels along with a six-CD changer, rain sensing wipers, LED lighting and dual zone automatic climate control.
Mazda6 customers find a different set of options. Little extra is added to the car's exterior beyond a new grille, but inside the car features leather trimmed heated seats and armrest, alloy pedals, automatic lights, rain sensing wipers, dimming rear view mirror, and 18-inch alloys.
Pricing on the Mazda2 Takuya 1.3 five-door begins at £11,915, while the Mazda3 Takuya 1.6 five-door starts at £15,780. The Mazda6 Takuya ranges from £19,845 for the 2.0 five-door, to £21,595 for the 2.2D Estate. The Mazda6 is also available with the 2.2D as a five-door for £20,945. All prices are on-the-road, and include 17.5 percent sales tax.
