- The front and rear bumpers, headlights, rear combination lamps, aluminum wheels, and wheel covers have been modified to create a more lively styling.
- The front has a sportier look thanks to a sharper looking five-point grille and front bumpers with enlarged openings.
- The Sport model is equipped with aerodynamic parts (front and side air dam skirts, rear roof and under skirts).
- New seat upholstery, new door trim fabric and enlarged door trim fabric surface area give the interior a more deluxe look. The C and G models have a gray interior, the L model has a beige interior, and the Sport model has a black interior. The Sport model features a carbon colored center panel and power window switch bezels for the front doors to match the black interior and create a more sporty impression.
- New body colors
The Sport model is available in the new Starry Blue Mica and Classic Red body colors. The G model is available in the Blazing Green Metallic body color. In all, there are a total of eight body colors to choose from.

2.Improved Dynamic (Driving) Performance

[Improvements to Driving Performance adopting a 2.0-liter DOHC Engine]
- In addition to the highly regarded 1.8-liter DOHC engine featured on previous Premacy models, a 2.0-liter DOHC engine with a maximum output of 121 KW (165 PS) and maximum torque of 177 Nm (18.1 kg-m) is available with the Sport model (FF only). The larger engine delivers high power and superior responsiveness, for a more pleasant driving experience both in the city and when travelling at high speeds on the expressways.
- The Sport model achieves reduced emissions of HC, NOx, and CO. It has received the "good-low emissions (25% reduction from emissions standard for 2000)" rating from the Ministry of Transport.

[Improvements to Maneuvering Stability, Ride Comfort and Quietness]
- Body rigidity has been improved in many places through the efficacious addition of reinforcing materials. In addition, careful tuning has been performed on the front and rear suspension systems. These improvements combine to produce a more comfortable and quieter ride, while further enhancing the excellent maneuvering stability Premacy has been known for since its initial release. Stability is improved both when traveling straight and when changing lanes, either in the city or when traveling at high speeds on the expressway. At the same time, Premacy becomes even more fun to drive.
- In addition to increased body rigidity and the carefully tuned suspension, other improvements have been made in order to significantly reduce noise while driving. These include the use of double door seals, thickened front door windows and increased noise-absorbing material in the engine compartment.

3.Enhanced Comfort and Convenience

- A wide collapsible armrest (with storage box) for the driver's seat, a seatback pocket on the front passenger seat, and a picnic table (with cup holder) for the second row of seats are standard on all models except the C model.
- A seatback pocket on the driver's seat and a driver's side vanity mirror (with ticket holder and lid) are standard on all models.
- The configuration of the front seats and the second row of seats has been modified to make them more comfortable.
- The driver' s side power window control has a "quick refresh" mode that lowers the window 3 centimeters with a single touch of a button to let fresh air in.
- Users can easily add functions to the new-concept audio system by purchasing additional audio kits.
- A DVD car navigation system compatible with the Mazda Telematics information service and allowing access to the Internet is available as an option on all models except the C model.
- A "rear entertainment pack," including a DVD player with built-in rear video monitor, six speakers, rear AV jacks, rear 100 V power supply, and easy-clean seats, is available as an option on the G model (A similar rear entertainment pack is available as an option on the MPV).

4.Improved Safety
- The Sport is equipped with rear disc brakes.
- The Sport features DSC (dynamic stability control) as standard equipment. It automatically stabilizes the behavior of the vehicle in situations where skidding to the side could occur during turns.
- All models are equipped with water-repellent side mirrors and front door windows. Four-wheel-drive models feature heated side mirrors and wiper deicers to improved visibility and safety.
- All models except the C model feature, as standard safety equipment, ISO-Fix compliant child seat securing mechanisms that reduce the likelihood of accidents caused by improper mounting, and an anchor for a top tether belt to prevent the child seat from dipping forward in the event of a head-on collision (right and left seats in the second row).
