Mazda releases all-new Biante minivan


Mazda Motor Corp on Tuesday announced the sales launch of the newly developed Mazda Biante for the Japanese market. Mazda’s mid-size tall ‘high-roof’ minivan goes on sale at all Mazda, Mazda Anfini and Mazda Autozam dealerships throughout Japan. Manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (including consumption tax) range from 2,199,000 to 2,650,000 yen for the front-wheel-drive (FWD) models.

The Biante was developed under the concept, "Look, then experience the Zoom-Zoom Tall minivan as it expands your dreams." It offers a spacious and functional clean interior, distinctive, athletic styling, and superb driving performance that provide an enticing blend of security and excitement.

The cabin’s feeling of spaciousness is amplified by the "living mode" function for the second row seats, which enables the seats to be adjusted backwards by an outstanding 863 mm. To ensure the interior is comfortable even with a full complement of passengers, the Biante features wide aperture dual sliding doors, a low floor in the passenger compartment and flexible seating arrangements. Additional features that provide a clean and comfortable cabin space include a "nanoe ion" air purification system, an Allergy Buster unit (a particulate filter to aid allergy sufferers), a deodorizer in the cabin ceiling and easy-wipe seat fabric.

I have driven one of these. The handling is horrific, the seats are uncomfortable, and ceiling was too low! I kept hitting my head thanks to this coupled with the horrible suspension! BIANTE? Whoever created it deserves a BINTA! DO NOT BUY THIS CAR!

Time has come for Mazda Biante, and to pay to mazda's bills.

Sounds like a monster Godzilla might fight. Oh, that was Biolante. Anyway, I am a Mazda fan and love their quality and value overall -- the current MPV is outstanding, and I wish they'd bring back the Bongo Friendee. I haven't driven one of these though.
