– Popular options are now standard on all grades for improved comfort and more high quality body colors are available –

HIROSHIMA, Japan—Mazda Motor Corporation has added fresh features to the four-door, four-seat rotary-powered Mazda RX-8 sports car for the Japanese market. The updated models go on sale today at all Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers nationwide.

Standard equipment across the entire RX-8 range has been updated with popular features that provide added comfort and convenience. The updates include rain-sensing windshield wipers and Mazda’s auto-light system (which switches the headlights on automatically according to ambient light conditions). Two additional exterior body colors, silver and gray, reflect the RX-8’s high quality and accentuate its exceptional sports car styling.

Main features of the freshened Mazda RX-8
– Rain-sensing windshield wipers, auto-light system, water-repellent coating (on the front door windows and door mirrors) and Mazda’s advanced keyless entry and engine start system now come as standard equipment on all model grades.
– The addition of two new body colors – Aluminum Metallic and Metropolitan Gray Mica – brings the available exterior range to seven colors.
– Revised model grade lineup (base model was renamed Type G).
– Audio-less specification standard for all model grades (to best match each driver’s needs, the space for a head unit in the center panel is left open. The Audio-less spec allows for a variety of audio systems).
