Beautiful to driveDETAILS
With its sporty-looking swept-back headlights and a bold grille, the 2009-model Atenza sedan looks good. The body appears long and low, thanks partly to big, chunky wheel arches filled by stylish 16-inch alloy wheels.
Inside the Atenza has a leather wrapped steering wheel, dual air-conditioning, keyless entry and push-start button.
It is easy to get comfortable behind the wheel, as the drivers seat is adjustable for height, and the steering wheel for reach and height. Rear-seat legroom is excellent, and there are three shoulder belts available back there.
RightCar has awarded the Mazda Atenza (20082011) with the maximum five-star Used Car Safety Rating, based on real-world crashes in New Zealand and Australia. Safety equipment included front and passenger airbags, traction control, electronic brake force distribution and anti-lock braking.
