Mazda Aletta Demio 1500
1. New 1.5-liter engine model "Aletta"
Boasting sporty interior and exterior, and customized chassis to facilitate handling stability in the pursuit of driving pleasure
(1) Exterior

- Aerodynamic accessories: spoiler parts on front, rear under, side sill and rear roof
- Customized mesh grille
- Detachable roof antenna
- Customized decals
- Five outer panel colors, including two new two-tone colors, Classic Red and Sunlight Silver Metallic, and three carried-over monotone colors, Pure White, Brilliant Black and Innocent Blue Mica.
(2) Interior

(3) Chassis

- Optimized performance of the rear damper and reliable handling stability facilitated with a new stabilizer and performance rods.

2. Enhanced 1.3-liter Engine Models with new emission mechanism
- Revised 1.3-liter engine models come up with a lower level of emission for the catalytic converter repositioned and re-configured. Now the emission amount of hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide 50% lower than the 2000 base Emission Control Standard. This mechanism makes these models meet the 2000 E-LEV Emission Control Standard of Japan's Ministry of Transport.
- These models are qualified for the lower rate of the automobile acquisition tax based on the preferred taxing system for low-emission vehicles. Additionally, the vehicles registered in the Tokyo Metro area are eligible for its own lowe rate of the automobile tax.3
3 If both tax reductions are applicable, the one is required to choose either reduction option.

3. Improved body rigidity for side-impact collision and additional safety features
- The center pillars are enhanced: filled with resin foam plastic to effectively disperse the energy of impact. Light-weight but solid cross members have been added to the floor providing the extra strength of the body structure in the event of side-impact collision.
- All models include front seatbelts with pretensioners and load-limit mechanism as standard equipment (the model without passenger-side airbags is not equipped with load-limit mechanism.)
- Optional SRS side airbag system with head-protection function (LX-G, LX-S, GL and Aletta)

4. Spirited handling stability and ride comfort
- The entire rigidity for vibration and the spot rigidity of the trailing portions of the torsion beams have been increased. Such increased rigidity results in the tougher structure of undercarriage and wheels, eventually providing more handling stability and ride comfort.

5. More features of convenience to facilitate everyday use
- All components of the optional New-Concept Audio System are upgradeable, so the user can easily add or replace a CD changer or a MD player, for instance, to the 2DIN-sized base unit (Model L comes with this audio system as a dealer option.)
- User is accessible to i-mode4 by using the CD-ROM car navigation system compatible with the Mazda Telematics information service5 (Available to LX-S, GL and Aletta.)
- Keyless entry system features answer-back function that let the user know the state of locked/unlocked, showing a hazard warning signal flasher (Available to LX-G, LX-S, GL and Aletta.)
