1997 Mazda Millenia Overview

1997 Mazda Millenia

Mazda made only minor changes to its Millennia luxury vehicle for 1997. Base, L Sedan, and S Sedan versions were available. A powered, eight-way adjustable passenger's seat was added to the L and S versions, and all three versions received an updated audio system with a CD player. Engine gearing was also improved to provide better response at low speeds.
The Base and L versions of the Millennia were powered by a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter V6. Standard features for the Base model included air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, a tilt steering wheel with a memory feature, cruise control, automatic climate control, dual airbags, and a lighted entry system. The L Sedan added leather seats and a power sunroof.
The S version received a supercharged 2.3-liter V6, which pushed horsepower up to 210. It also was equipped with an upgraded list of standard features, including leather seats, a power sunroof, and traction control.
Generally, drivers were very positive about the Millennia sedan, praising it for its quiet engine, smooth handling, luxury features, and good value, especially when compared to other luxury automobiles. On the downside, some noted that power was adequate but not spectacular, and that gas mileage was not as good as expected.
