Mazda Demio 13C-V

(Front wheel drive with MZR 1.3-liter Miller-cycle engine with continuously variable transmission.)

The updated Demio comes with refined interior and exterior styling. Two vivid exterior body colors — Passion Orange Mica and Golden Red Mica — have been newly added to the range. Inside, the standard black seats have been enlivened with a multistripe pattern, and the steering wheel features bright silver spokes.


Mazda's 'Audio-less' specification is now standard across the entire model range, providing customers with the freedom to choose their desired audio system. This revision makes the base price for some of the available models even more affordable.

A very mild update indeed... the audioless concept appeals to me though, as it always annoys me how long it takes the car makers to adopt modern audio technologies in stock systems. For example, if you want compatibility with a simple USB key, you need a new 7 series...

Funny that with all MCE,VVT and CVT mazda2 beats prius in fuel economy...


How come Mazda hasnt come out with some sort of variable valve timing. A system like that would benefit the MCE.


It has VVT, they call it sequential VVT or something. It is hydraulically controlled IIRC. It has all tricks to beat a hybrid.
