According to Paul Tan, Mazda has agree to supply its Premacy MPV to Nissan from May this year for sale in Japan. Paul also mentioned Nissan’s version of the Premacy will be clearly differentiated to Mazda’s. Perhaps new sheet metal (sans the Nagare-flow design on the side doors) and revise front fascia, as in my impressions?
The current Lafesta has been around since 2004. And with no replacement in plan, perhaps the Mazda Premacy will serve as the new Lafesta. I do however wonder why doesn’t Nissan rebadge the Renault Scenic instead? Cost?
