Mazda are upping the enticement right now with their ‘Takuya’ special edition Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda6 models, available from dealers now.
Starting at £11,940 (OTR) for the popular Mazda2 Takuya, rising to £16,695 for the Mazda3 Takuya hatch, and finally up to £20,495 for the family-size Mazda6 Takuya; all models are touted with sportier styling, enhanced interiors and ‘special’ colours.
“The 2011 Mazda Takuya range offers buyers genuine exclusivity, evocative sports styling and enhanced equipment, while representing fantastic value for money,” says Mark Cameron, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
“Previous special edition Mazda models have proved hugely popular, selling fast and boasting impressive residual values. The Takuya range offers yet another reason for value-seeking consumers that want something different from the mainstream to head down to their local Mazda dealership this winter,” he added.
So, if you’re liking the look of the striking Mazda range, now is the time to drive a hard bargain with your local Mazda dealer. Full details on the specials are as follows:
The Mazda2 1.3-litre 5-door Takuya is the entry point to the 2011 special edition range. Priced at £110 more than the Tamura model, this Takuya boasts the addition of front fog lights, black sports trim, rear electric windows, automatic climate-control air-conditioning, a Parrot Bluetooth® hands-free kit and a new rear bumper sports trim.
Standard equipment also includes 16-inch alloy wheels, a sports styling kit (incorporating a rear spoiler and side skirts) and sports headlights. The interior gets side and curtain airbags, a trip computer, leather steering wheel and gear knob, steering wheel remote audio controls and four stereo speakers. For 2011, the Mazda2 Takuya is available in five colours, including the new Burgundy Red Mica, seen here.
Powered by a 1.3-litre, 84bhp engine, the Mazda2 Takuya accelerates to 62mph in 13.6secs, returns 55.4mpg (combined cycle) and produces 119g/km of CO2.
Costing £1,145 more than the TS model on which it is based, this 105bhp, 1.6-litre Takuya comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, sports styling kit, front fog and LED rear lights, plus automatic dusk-sensing lights and rain-sensing wipers. Inside, there is automatic dual-zone climate control air conditioning, black sports interior trim, heated front sports seats, an integrated Bluetooth® system, a six-disc CD changer and leather covered steering wheel and gear knob.
The Mazda3 Takuya returns a combined fuel economy figure of 43.5mpg 149g/km of CO2.
