Mazda Motor Corp. on Tuesday launched a fully redesigned Familia model on the Japanese market.

The automaker has sold over 10 million units of the Familia series since it was launched in 1963, and it consistently has been a core product of the company. The new model, the ninth generation of the Familia series, comes in two different body types: the five-door S-wagon and four-door sedan.

The S-wagon is equipped with a 1.5-liter engine or 1.8-liter engine, and the sedan comes with either a 1.3-liter engine, 1.5-liter engine or 2-liter engine. The monthly combined sales target for the S-wagon and sedan is 5,000 units, with the Familia priced between 991,000 yen and 1.86 million yen.

The new Familia sedan has been shortened by 20 mm to improve maneuverability, and the S-wagon’s overall length is 115 mm shorter than the sedan, but features an extended back roof edge for wider interior space.
