Following on from the success of the Mazda2 and Mazda6 Tamura special editions in early 2009, Mazda has introduced a new 1.6 Tamura hatchback to its Mazda3 line-up, which offers even greater ‘added value’ to customers at Jennings Mazda dealerships in Wearside and Teesside.

Chris Nixon, franchise manager at Jennings Mazda in Sunderland, said; “We are delighted to offer the Mazda3, 5 door special edition model, which is on display and available to test drive at our Riverside Road dealership.”

Based on the already generously equipped TS model, the new Tamura features the addition of Sports styling kit (with sports front grille, side skirts and sports bumpers), larger 17” alloy wheels with low profile tyres, front fog lamps, special badging and free metallic paint.

Like its sister cars in the Mazda3 range for 2010, the new Tamura model has a fresh bodystyle that portrays a more powerful and emotional design, with a richer expression and a more dynamic stance. In many ways the all-new Mazda3 is a ‘baby Mazda6’ bringing the elegant excitement of that model’s distinctive lines to the C-segment.

The 1.6-litre petrol engine, which generates 105ps, is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox and accelerates the Tamura to 62mph in a brisk 12.2 seconds. The CO2 output has been cut to 149g/km (from 162g/km on the previous generation 1.6 models) and the combined fuel economy figure for the new Tamura is 44.8mpg.

Adding to its sporty styling exterior, the Mazda3 Tamura has numerous features as standard including: remote central locking, dual-zone climate control air conditioning, welcome mode lighting, a leather steering wheel with audio controls, an MP3 compatible audio system with six speakers and auxiliary (AUX) jack input, as well as power folding mirrors and electric front and rear windows.

Safety is paramount on all-new Mazda3 with a host of equipment that includes Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and a Traction Control System (TCS), six airbags and an Emergency Stop Signallling (ESS) System standard on all models. This new ESS system automatically activates the hazard warning lights at cruising speeds when the ABS sensors detect emergency braking.

A choice of four body colours for the Mazda3 Tamura is available – including one new metallic (Aluminium Silver Metallic) two regular Mica colours (Black Mica and Velocity Red Mica), and the unique-to-Tamura Gunmetal Blue Mica, offered on just 255 examples of the 850 Mazda3 Tamura models being manufactured for the UK market.

All new Mazda3 models are available to purchase under the new Government-backed scrappage scheme, with and increased Mazda Allowance of £2000, in addition to the £1000 Government contribution.
