2019 Mazda Flair Wagon Review & Changes – Mazda has released the new Flair Wagon and Flair Wagon Custom Style in Japan. Set to continue on selling in February, the models are based on the Suzuki Spacia and feature a bolder design making them significantly more attractive than their predecessor. The standard model looks fairly traditional for a key car but Mazda claims it features a special beltline which has been created to “emphasize the thickness of the body.”
The Flair Wagon Custom Style is a lot more exciting of the two models as it features an exclusive front fascia with a prominent grille that is flanked by LED headlights. The model also offers additional chrome trim and round fog lamps.
The interior is very little on the ordinary side but drivers may find a large speedometer and a small digital display. There is also an infotainment system, metallic accents, and a sporty steering wheel. Mazda also remarks the model has a far more spacious interior as properly as enhanced entry and egress. In spite of its small size, the Flair Wagon is available loaded with technology including a collision caution system, high beam assist, and a lane departure warning system.
Under the hood, two 660cc engines are available. The entry-level unit generates 52 PS (38 kW) and 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) of torque, although the range-topping variant has a turbocharged engine establishing 64 PS (47 kW) and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) of torque. Each is paired to a hybrid powertrain that features an electric motor that makes 3 PS (2 kW) and 50 Nm (36 lb-ft) of torque.
The powertrain is hooked up to a new CVT transmission and it enables the Flair Wagon to travel up to 30. km/L (70.5 mpg US). Front-wheel drive is standard when all-wheel drive is non-obligatory. Prices begins at ¥1,333,800 ($11,777) and climbs to ¥1,908,360 ($16,850) for the top of the line Flair Wagon Custom Style Hybrid XT.
