The luxurious and sophisticated new 2002 Mazda Millenia
breezes onto the market this year with upgraded performance,
a smoother and quieter ride, bolder design, and a revamped
cabin. Passengers will feel even more pampered than ever
in its spacious and well-appointed interior that brims with
comforts and conveniences.
Two elegant models hit the road this year - the
Millenia and the Millenia S. The only real difference between
the two lies in performance, with the S model outdoing the
base vehicle due to its innovative Miller cycle engine.
Various equipment packages are available.
Mazda has put an emphasis on aesthetic value
with close attention to details such as supple leather upholstery,
leather-wrapped gearshift knob and handbrake lever, and
Optitron gauges on the instrument panel. Standard fare includes
a center console with two storage bins and padded armrest,
12V outlet, room for ten CD's, and two cupholders. The list
continues with two front and two rear cupholders in the
rear armrest, which also doubles as a pass-through to the
trunk for skis.
Other standard interior features include power windows,
power door locks, cruise control, eight-way power driver's
and passenger's seat, power moonroof, and the comfort of
air conditioning. The power lumbar support for the driver's
seat and two-tone interior finish are also pleasant features.
Options include a cargo net and a moonroof deflector. A
Bose audio system is standard on the Millenia S model.
A gorgeous curbside appeal is attributed to a careful and
stylish design that highlights the five-point grille, dual
round taillight reflectors, front fenders, front bumper,
headlights, and rear fascia. The Millenia also sports front
fog lights and sixteen-inch aluminum wheels, while the Millenia
S wears seventeen-inch aluminum alloy wheels.
Under the hood of the Millenia Sedan hums a 2.5-litre,
DOHC, V6 engine that produces 170 horsepower. Rising to
the next level is the Millenia S model, featuring a 2.3-litre,
Miller cycle, DOHC, V6 engine with an impressive output
of 210 horsepower. It quietly and efficiently delivers the
power of a larger engine with lower fuel consumption.
Other performance details list a four-wheel multi-link
suspension and a variable-assist rack-and-pinion steering
for crisp and responsive handling. Standard transmission
is four-speed automatic.
Safety and Security
The Mazda Millenia models are both equipped with
extensive safety features that includes four-wheel anti-lock
brakes with electronic brake force distribution for maximum
control. Other standards listed are a driver depowered air
bag, passenger depowered air bag, three-point seatbelt,
head restraints, child safety locks, and child seat tethers
and anchors. The Millenia comes with three-year roadside
assistance around the clock, with loaner vehicle services.
