Introduction, Exterior

Estates / Wagons used to be the preserve of Volvo but lately, most manufacturers have introduced an estate version of their sedans. And it’s not hard to see why estates are gaining in popularity and overcoming the social stigma of its morbid resemblance to a last ride.

Naturally when you’re looking for more boot capacity, you would look towards the SUV segment. This inevitably means losing pleasant driving dynamics of a sedan. Although BMW, Porsche and Audi all boast of SUVs that counter the fact, they also cost significantly more.

The estate body type exists to fill the unique gap between these two segments. And in the Mazda, there’s joyful repetition of the dynamically capable sedan in the estate variant. 

 

Exterior

Based on Mazda’s KODO design language, the transition of sedan to estate hasn’t marred any of the graceful swooping lines of the former but has instead improved on it. The wide flat bonnet makes a sporty impression with its slit headlights creating an intense expression.

The roofline takes on a fluid form as it gently tucks itself into the sloping tailgate. The 19-inch alloys complete the wheel well nicely and gives adequate proportion to the nearly five metre car.
