Another Pointless 90th Anniversary Special from Mazda: New Biante 20S NAVI

This year marks the 90th anniversary of Mazda, and to celebrate, the Japanese automaker is building all sorts of (supposedly) special edition cars for its home market. The latest commemorative model is the JDM-only Biante 20S Navi Special that goes on sale today in a limited run of 400 units.

But like most of Mazda's Japanese-market 90th anniversary models, there's nothing really special about this version of the eight-seater minivan. In fact, the only difference between the standard 20S and the 90th 20S Navi is that the latter gets a voice-controlled HDD navigation system, parking assist, and Mazda's start and stop system as standard.

The new Bianti 20S Navi Special is offered in Japan as a FWD model with a 2.0-liter DISI engine linked to a 5-speed auto (2,572,500 Yen) or a 4WD version with the same engine but a 4-speed auto (2,861,500 Yen).
