Mazda Biante OverviewThe Mazda Biante is a 5-door, 8-seater multipurpose vehicle (MPV) hailed from the Hiroshima Prefecture. Available only in the CBU form imported directly from Japan, the SkyActiv-G 2.0 is the sole variant on offer in Malaysia, featuring Mazda’s proprietary suite of innovations in SkyActive technology.
Originally intended only for the Japanese market in 2008, the Mazda Biante made its first international debut in Indonesia back in 2013, becoming the first country outside Japan to market the MPV before its subsequent introduction to the Malaysian market later in the same year.
Competitively priced from RM 140,515 when new, the Japanese MPV is primarily aimed for younger families with small children. Competition in the segment includes the Nissan Serena, Kia Grand Carnival and the Hyundai Grand Starex. Alternative options include the more premium Toyota Alphard and the Toyota Vellfire.
