Mazda Motor Corporation began taking orders today for the Mazdaspeed Atenza at Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers throughout Japan. The sales launch is set for late August 2005.

Mazdaspeed Atenza comes equipped with technology independently developed by Mazda: a newly developed 2.3L direction injection gasoline turbo engine (designated the MZR 2.3L DISI Turbo*) and an electronic Active Torque Split Control All-Wheel-Drive system. It delivers a higher balance between comfort, economy and high performance that we need in everyday life.

Mazdaspeed Atenza also meets “Green Tax” standards, Japan’s tax reduction regulations for eco-friendly vehicles. Certified as a Super Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle (SU-LEV) that complies with Japan’s 2005 emissions reduction standard of 75 percent, when purchasing an Mazdaspeed Atenza the owner can receive a reduction in the vehicle excise tax because it is also certified as exceeding the 2010 fuel economy standard by five percent.
*DISI: Direct Injection Spark Ignition
