Mazda Motor Corporation has celebrated its 100th Anniversary on the 30th of January this year. As part of this remarkable accomplishment, Mazda Motor Corporation is producing a Special Edition Series on the full Mazda Range.

These special edition models were prepared as a token of Mazda's appreciation for those who have supported Mazda this far, along with our determination to continue to cherish our founder’s aspiration of enriching people’s lives. The models adopt a white-and-burgundy two-tone colour coordination, inspired by Mazda’s first passenger car R360 Coupe, created in 1960. In addition, exclusive components featuring our 100th Anniversary Special Logo, are adopted on both exterior and interior of the commemorative models.

Revealed in Japan earlier this year, three of the models have now arrived in South Africa. Whilst the 100th Anniversary Special Edition vehicles will not be for general sale, Mazda Southern Africa will make the three Mazda3 2.0 Astina Hatch 100th Anniversary Special Edition available to members of the media, as well as for special occasions to celebrate the company’s centenary.
