Mazda Atenza first Japanese vehicle with Rear Vehicle Monitoring system

The all-new Mazda Atenza – soon to be introduced in Japan will be revealed at the 40th Tokyo Motor Show in October 2007. All-new Mazda Atenza embodies Mazda’s latest car-making philosophy: Zoom-Zoom Evolution. Along with enhanced environmental and safety performance, the all-new Mazda Atenza has a more emphatic Mazda character in its design, dynamic performance, packaging and craftsmanship. 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. For the first time a bold new sportier version with large front and rear aero bumpers, sporty grille and side spoilers will be displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The new Mazda Atenza 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.
