Mazda Refreshes Demio Model In Japan
Mazda’s superimini, Demio (or Mazda2 as you probably know it), just received a facelift and is now on sale in Japan where the automaker plans on selling 6,000 units each month. As you can see, there aren’t that many changes as far as the exterior styling is concerned, but the company says that they’ve increased the rigidity of the bodyshell and they’ve retuned the suspension, while on the inside, the Demio got materials of higher quality.
A new addition to the Mazda2 range is the inclusion of the 13-Skyactive engine that according to the company, offers the best consumption level in its class. This power unit benefits from direct fuel injection, the world’s highest compression of 14.0:1 and the proprietary “i-stop” stop/start system. In addition, it also packs some sort of technology called i-DM, which stands for intelligent Drive Master and not only makes the car more economical but it also makes the driving experience more enjoyable.
As standard, the Mazda Demio comes with 14-inch alloy wheels or bigger 16-inch rims for the Sport edition along with Dynamic Stability Control that sports Traction Control System.
The Japanese automaker estimates that 60% of the units that will be sold will have the aforementioned 13-Skyactive engine.
