Mazda Takuya Models Offer Better Value

Sat, 06/16/2012 - 20:55

The Japanese manufacturer is offering special editions of Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda6 ranges in UK called Takuya.

As it’s the case with these special edition models, they are loaded with features and offer greater value for money that normal models. In essence the Takuya models come with sports styling kit, enhanced interior specification, unique colours and ‘special edition’ exclusivity.

Pricing for these models start from £11,940 for Mazda2, £16,695 the Mazda3, and £20,495 for the Mazda6.


All Mazda Takuya models are also available with VAT fixed at the 2010 rate – this offer applies to the retail list price and excludes all factory fitted and dealer fitted options.

Detailed specs and pricing of each Takuya special edition Mazda are listed in the press release below:

Following on from the success of the ‘Takuya Special Edition Range’ introduced in mid-2010 for a limited period, Mazda is launching five 2011 ‘Takuya’ models across the Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda6 line-ups with a total production volume of 3894 units.

The generously equipped Takuya models incorporate features normally only available with top-of-the-range derivatives.  Also displaying extra visual appeal with attractive pricing, the Takuya quintet will be on sale from 1 February 2011 offering Mazda customers great added value.

“The 2011 Mazda Takuya range offers buyers genuine exclusivity, evocative sports styling and enhanced equipment, while representing fantastic value for money,” comments 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,”

Cameron added: “Also in support of the Mazda2’s high value guise, is the recent announcement that it came sixth in the Parker’s Cost of Motoring report^. It is a great result and testament to the Mazda2′s competitive price and great value. The Mazda2 lost just £2,022 and 23 percent of its original value according to Parker’s deprecation statistics.”

Mazda2 Takuya – compact and sporty
Priced from £11,940 (OTR), the Mazda2 1.3-litre five-door Takuya is the entry point into the 2011 special edition range.  With a price tag just £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 – to offer truly remarkable value.

Standard equipment also includes 16-inch alloy wheels, a sports styling kit (incorporating a rear spoiler and side skirts) and sports headlights.  The interior benefits from side and curtain airbags, a trip computer, leather steering wheel and gear knob, steering wheel remote audio controls and four audio speakers.  For 2011 the Mazda2 Takuya is available in a choice of five colours, including the new Burgundy Red Mica.

Powered by a 1.3-litre, 84ps engine, the Mazda2 Takuya is a lively performer that is also remarkably frugal.  It accelerates to 62mph in 13.6 seconds, while recording 55.4mpg (combined cycle) and producing just 119g/km of CO2.

Mazda3 Takuya – added appeal for popular hatch
Consumers requiring a larger but equally agile hatchback will find the 105ps, 1.6-litre Mazda3 Takuya an ideal car.  Costing £1,145 more than the TS model on which it is based, this Takuya boasts specification that includes 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.

Priced from just £16,695 the Mazda3 Takuya represents excellent value for money and promises low running costs with a combined fuel economy figure of 43.5mpg and low-for-class 149g/km of CO2 emissions.

Mazda6 Takuya – high-performance family fun
Buyers with bigger families, will find Mazda6 Takuya special edition models available in three different guises: a 2.0-litre 155ps five-door (£20,495), 2.2D 163ps five-door (£21,675) and 2.2D 163ps Estate (£22,325).

For £1,050 more than the TS models, all three variants benefit from the fitment of 18-inch alloy wheels, a sports grille, front fog lights, privacy glass and dusk-sensing headlights.  The interior features an alloy pedal set, half-leather heated seats, auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control air-conditioning, an integrated Bluetooth® system and a six-disc CD changer.  A choice of four metallic, mica or pearlescent paint colours is offered free-of-charge.
