Wagon Appreciation Pt 4: Berjaya Motors (Mazda & Skoda)

In this blog entry, I'll be posting Wagon Appreciation Part 4: Berjaya Motors.  Why Berjaya Motors? 
Because it's the DISTRIBUTOR of Mazda (Bermaz) and Skoda (Quasar Carriage) cars in Malaysia.  I will be covering 4 wagons:

1) Mazda 6 Wagon

2) Skoda Superb Combi Wagon
3) Skoda Octavia Combi Wagon
4) Skoda Fabia Combi Wagon.

There's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words.  Without further ado, let's proceed to the photos:

1) Mazda 6 Wagon:


If you need the practicality, space and flexibility of a wagon, you usually need to compromise on style. The Mazda6 wagon is the perfect solution with its stylish, sporty exterior design and brilliant versatility. Available in Classic, Touring or Diesel models (In Australia), it is a spacious wagon with the luxury of a sedan. A highlight of the Mazda6 wagon is its handy ‘Karakuri’ seats and tonneau cover that fold down with the flick of a wrist to make the most of its ample storage space - even when you have your hands full.

The Mazda 6 Wagon is available in 2 engine/gearbox Combo.
1) 4 cyl 2.5 MZR - SVT 16v with 5 speed Activematic gearbox
2) 4 cyl 2.2 MZR - CD Commonrail Diesel Turbo with 6 speed Manual only.

Above: Petrol 2.5 S-VT (as seen in Sedan), Below: MZR-CD 2.2 Diesel engine.

Skoda Superb Estate - luxurious and practical car.

The new Skoda Superb Estate is set to become both the most luxurious and most practical car ever to wear the famous winged arrow badge.

Trim levels and engine choices will mirror those of the Skoda Superb hatchback with S, SE and Elegance models available along with the same range of three petrol and three diesel engines. All engines, from 1.4 TSI, 1.8TSI to 3.6 V6 are equipped with direct fuel injection for optimum fuel efficiency, performance and low emissions. With a choice of manual or twin-clutch DSG gearboxes linked to either two- or four-wheel drive, there's a Skoda Superb Estate to suit everyone's needs.

Not to be outdone by the hatchback's innovative Twin Door tailgate (above), the Skoda Superb Estate's boot - the biggest in its class - has its fair share of neat touches too. All models are fitted with a pair of lights built into the tailgate to illuminate not only the load bay but also the area around the rear of the car. A third, LED light in the boot can be removed all together and used as a torch and, thanks to its magnetic body, mounted to the car's body.

The tailgate itself has an optional power-operated function while the integrated luggage cover automatically retracts when the boot is opened. Customers can also specify the variable floor which extends over the rear bumper to help with awkward loads. Those who choose SE or Elegance will further benefit from a load partition and tethering system provided in the boot as standard. And if the Skoda Superb Estate's cavernous load bay (633 litres with the rear seats in place, 1,865 litres seats down) still isn't big enough, all models are fitted with roof rails as standard. (Black roof rails on S and chrome roof rails on SE and Elegance).

To make life even easier, an optional keyless entry and starting system (KESSY) is available for the first time on a Skoda, while passengers in all five of the Skoda Superb Estate's spacious seats will enjoy the natural light offered by the new two-piece electric panoramic sunroof (Below).

Here are the pictures:

The reason I create this blog entry is to LURE Berjaya Motors to import in AT LEAST 2 of the 4 models above (eg. Skoda Superb Combi and Mazda 6 Wagon), though I hope they can bring in ALL of the ABOVE.

If Berjaya Motor (under Quasar Carriage) have NO PLAN to bring in Skoda Wagons, AT LEAST BRING IN Fabia Hatchback, Octavia Hatchback vRS TSI AND Superb Hatch-Sedan PLEASE!

That's all folks, thanks for having the time and patience to read this blog entry.
