Mazda Introduces 4WD GS4 Model to JDM Carol Range

Mazda is enhancing its Carol range of micro-minis in Japan with a new four-wheel drive model called the GS4. The new version of the Carol, which is more or less a JDM Suzuki Alto with Mazda's badges and five-point lower grille, is powered by a tiny 660cc three-cylinder engine matted to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

The new grade also adds several equipment features such as keyless entry & keyless push button start system, an immobilizer, split folding rear seats, heated door mirrors and driver seat.

The Mazda Carol GS4 AWD is on sale now in Japan with prices starting from 1,120,350 Yen, which comes to around €9,500 or US$12,000 at today's exchange rates.
