Mazda Releases Special Edition Atenza Sedan in Japan
When automakers don't have anything new to offer, they often create special edition models. Such is the case with Mazda that announced the launch of the '2.0 Style Edition' Atenza sedan which is known as the Mazda6 in overseas markets like Europe and North America. This special edition model which is available only in Japan is based on the Atenza 20C model grade and is powered by a 2.0-liter engine hooked up to a five-speed automatic transmission.
What makes this edition special in the eyes of Mazda is a series of features that include LED indicators embedded in the door mirrors, discharge headlights, 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped around in 215/50 R17 rubber, blackout gauges (the dashboard and instrument panel dials are visible only when the engine is engaged) and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
The Atenza 2.0 Style Edition is offered in Japan with a choice of six exterior body colors, including Lilac Silver Metallic and Stormy Blue Mica which aren't available for the base model Atenza Sedan 20C.
