Mazda introduced a new Tamura Special Edition pack that will be offered in the UK on both hatch models of the Mazda2 and Mazda6. The first model, the Mazda2 1.3 Tamura special is available in 3- or 5-door variant and is patterned after the TS2 trim level.
Included in the available sport package are new front and rear bumpers, side skirts, a two-bar grill and rear spoiler which is the most significant change with a 16-inch dark grey wheel completing the outstanding overall appearance.
This variant comes with a 1.3 gasoline powerplant that generates 86 hp and is joined to a 5-speed manual, a combination which resulted in 54.3mpg. The 3-door version costs £10,275 and the 5-door variant fetches a £10,775 price tag.
The Mazda6 version is patterned after the 2.0 5-door TS model and highlights a sport styling pack that includes new front and rear sports bumper, rear spoiler, and side skirts. External revisions consist of privacy glass, clear rear light bezels plus special 18-inch wheels. The vehicle is propelled by a 2.0 liter powerplant that generates 147 hp which helps it to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 10.2 seconds. All of these for a price tag of £16,695.
Mazda UK Sales and Marketing Director Mark Cameron shares that with the Mazda3 Tamura offering great value for money and having its own unique sports style, it is expected to attract a wider range of customers, which include younger drivers. The Mazda3 Tamura, he adds, has the elegance, style, technology, and class, seen from the Mazda6. All of these are being presented to the compact family car segment, Cameron continues.
Since the Mazda3 is covered under the Government-backed scrappage scheme, customers who plan to buy one would get the standard Government contribution of £1,000 and the £2,000 Mazda Allowance. This means that one can own Mazda3 Tamura for around £11,995. Mazda UK continues to support this scrappage scheme by extending two special finance deals to ‘scrappage sales’ customers.
