Mazda has released a new, enhanced version of its Mazda Familia Van on the Japanese car market. For model year 2011, the revised commercial ride packs more versatility and is already on sale at Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers across Japan.

Additionally, the entire 2011 Familia Van lineup benefits from improved safety performance achieved through a passenger-side airbag, which now comes as standard feature reinforcing the driver-side airbag that was standard on the previous model. New goodies such as an electrical socket and grab handles are also fitted as standard and deliver more comfort and convenience to the new ride.

The Mazda Familia Van models packed with the 1.5-liter engine (front-wheel drive) and the 1.6-liter power unit (four-wheel drive) now qualifies for the 75 percent reduction in taxes through Japan's eco-car tax reduction program.
