Mazda Flair Wagon And Flair Wagon Custom Style Unveiled In Japan

Mazda has introduced the new Flair Wagon and Flair Wagon Custom Style in Japan.

Set to go on sale in February, the models are based on the Suzuki Spacia and feature a bolder design which makes them significantly more appealing than their predecessor. The standard model looks fairy conventional for a kei car but Mazda says it features a distinctive beltline that has been designed to “emphasize the thickness of the body.”

The Flair Wagon Custom Style is the more interesting of the two models as it features a unique front fascia with a prominent grille that is flanked by LED headlights. The model also has additional chrome trim and circular fog lights.

The interior is little on the plain side but drivers will find a large speedometer and a small digital display. There is also an infotainment system, metallic accents, and a sporty steering wheel. Mazda also notes the model has a more spacious interior as well as improved entry and egress.

Despite its small size, the Flair Wagon comes loaded with technology including a collision warning system, high beam assist, and a lane departure warning system.

Under the hood, two 660cc engines are available. The entry-level unit produces 52 PS (38 kW) and 60 Nm (44 lb-ft) of torque, while the range-topping variant has a turbocharged engine developing 64 PS (47 kW) and 98 Nm (72 lb-ft) of torque. Both are paired to a hybrid powertrain that features an electric motor that produces 3 PS (2 kW) and 50 Nm (36 lb-ft) of torque.

The powertrain is connected to a new CVT transmission and it enables the Flair Wagon to travel up to 30.0 km/L (70.5 mpg US). Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.

Pricing starts 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.

    Ok so this look exactly the same as the suzuki, and i saw another article where toyota have the same thing again. Dont the car companies sue for copyright?! Theyre so identical that they probably come off the same production floor

    • You had to understand kei car market in Japan, some brand choose to market rebadged version of other manufacturer car. Like Mazda had agreement with Suzuki, Toyota with Daihatsu and Nissan with Mitsubishi. That is why they look similar and this Mazda is basically a rebadged Suzuki.

        Another thing
        Nowadays
        Nissan already have Mitsubishi
        Toyota owned all Daihatsu and partly Mazda and Suzuki

    This reminds me of a hospital bedside cabinet!

  • The one with the big grille is a bit hideous, I like the simpler one. And btw this car is actually Suzuki with Mazda badges (common thing for manufacturer to use other kei car and sold it under theirs)

      That big road-eater is a little much.

    Despite, being a Suzuki, rebadged as a Mazda; I would rather drive this, than any of their current models.*

    *(Except, the DJ-chassis Demio; as long, it’s not the rebadged Toyota Yaris iA, for the American/Canadian markets.)

    Plus, I love the humongous grill, in the Custom Style variant. It looks outrageous, yet somehow; fashionable and alluring to me, at the same time.

    The same comment I made nine days ago when the new Spacia was released applies to the new Flair Wagon, as they’re the same vehicle only differing in badges.
