A 2.8-liter diesel model has been added to the 2WD model of the Mazda "Bongo Brawny Van."

The Bongo Brawny Van is a commercial van that can store long luggage, has stable driving performance, and has excellent environmental and safety performance.
The Bongo Brawny Van is a model that was sold in the past as a model with an extended wheelbase based on Bongo. The new Bongo Brawny Van revived its name as an OEM car for the Toyota Hiace van in 2019.

Until now, the Bongo Brawny Van model lineup has been equipped with a 2.0-liter gasoline engine for 2WD vehicles and a 2.8-liter diesel turbo engine for 4WD vehicles. In this partial product improvement, a 2.8-liter diesel turbo engine model was added to the lineup for 2WD due to high demand from users.

The in-line 4-cylinder 2.8-liter diesel turbo engine installed in the Bongo Brawny Van diesel model has a maximum output of 111kW / 3600rpm and a maximum torque of 300Nm / 1000 while suppressing displacement by using a common rail fuel injection system and a turbocharger with an air-cooled intercooler. Equipped with a power performance of -3400 rpm and a 6-speed AT, it achieves both low fuel consumption of 11.3 km / l in WLTC mode.
The gasoline-powered vehicle is equipped with a 2.0-liter in-line 4-cylinder engine that delivers 136ps / 182Nm and a 6-speed AT. Only 2WD vehicles are available, and the WLTC mode fuel consumption is 9.3km / l.

The Bongo Brawny Van has two grades: the standard model DX and the high-spec model GL equipped with higher-grade equipment.

Bongo Brawny Van's safety features include four features as standard on all vehicles.
Millimeter-wave radar + monocular camera-based preventive safety technology "Collision Avoidance Support Package", "Dynamic Stability Control System (DSC)" to prevent skidding, "Hill Start" to alleviate vehicle slippage when starting on a slope "Assist control", intelligent clearance sonar "parking support brake (stationary object)".
Intelligent clearance sonar suppresses engine output when starting when it detects an obstacle such as a wall in the direction of travel (front and back). When the distance is further shortened, the damage reduction brake is automatically activated to suppress the collision of the car or reduce the damage.

In addition, the "auto light system" that automatically switches the lighting of the headlamps according to the brightness of the surroundings while driving is standard equipment on all models as before.In addition, LED headlamps are also installed in the high-grade GL.

Bongo Brawny Van will be a reliable companion.
