Mazda2 named ‘outstanding car of 2011’
Muscat, January 25, 2012
Mazda2, a subcompact manufactured by Japanese automaker Mazda, was recently listed as one of the ‘Outstanding Cars of 2011’ by the Oman Economic Review (OER) magazine.
The Mazda2 is available in hatchback and sedan versions in Oman, and gets 100 horsepower from its 1.6-litre engine, a statement said.
The car comes with a neat interior that is spacious and capable of carrying a passenger or two as well as their luggage. The car’s short wheelbase makes it easy to park in tight, urban spaces.
It also comes with a full range of safety equipment, including six airbags, antilock brakes, traction control and stability control.
Annurag Chawla, head of Marketing and Communications, Towell Auto Centre (TAC) said: “At TAC, we are committed to giving out customers vehicles such as the Mazda2 that are the best value for money.”
“We are extremely pleased that the car has been featured on the OER’s ‘Outstanding Cars of 2011’ list. Having made it to this list the Mazda2 has certainly proven beyond doubt that it has made a serious impact amongst automotive aficionados in the Sultanate.”
The Mazda2 also features a four-speed automatic transmission, central locking with keyless entry, power windows and mirrors, ABS, EBD, CD-MP3, AM/FM radio with four speakers, 14-inch steel rims with flush wheel-caps (also available in 15-inch alloy), and auxiliary audio input. – TradeArabia News Service
