At the apex of its 90th anniversary celebrations, Mazda Motors has released special edition versions of its Mazda Axela sports compact (known overseas as the Mazda3) and Mazda Biante minivan. Dubbed Mazda Axela 90th Anniversary Special Edition and Mazda Biante i-stop Smart Edition both special models are designed exclusively for the Japanese market and are already available at the authorized dealerships across Japan.

The two newly styled special edition models benefit from the award-winning i-stop system and offer outstanding eco-friendly and safety performance as well as Mazda's hallmark fun-to-drive attributes.

The Mazda Axela 90th Anniversary Special Edition is based on the Axela trim level that comes with i-stop function. It will be the first Mazda in the Japanese market that will boast the exclusive exterior body color, Gunmetal Blue Mica. The Mazda Biante i-stop Smart Edition, also launched to celebrate Mazda's 90th birthday, is based on the 20CS model grade. Its highlight features include i-stop, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Mazda's Advanced Keyless Entry System.
