2002 Mazda Millenia Overview

Mazda had high hopes for its Millennia luxury sedan when the vehicle was launched in 1998. But despite good reviews from critics and mostly positive comments from the drivers who actually bought the car, it never really caught on with the mass car-buying public. So 2002 would be its final year.
That's unfortunate, because overall the Millennia offered a lot for the money. The Base model was powered by a 170-horsepower 2.5-liter V6, which was linked to a four-speed automatic transmission. Standard features included air conditioning, power windows, power door locks, power seats in the front, a tilt steering wheel with a memory feature, cruise control, automatic climate control, dual airbags, and a power sunroof.
Stepping up a notch, the Millennia S version received a supercharged 2.3-liter V6, which pushed horsepower up to 210. It was equipped with an upgraded list of standard features that included a premium audio system and traction control.
In addition, a Special Edition Millennia was available for 2002. Available only in black, it came with a Titanium package that included a special center console, two-tone ivory and black interior, and 17-inch wheels with titanium finish.
Overall, drivers liked the Millennia's styling, handling, comfort, safety features, and build quality, though some noted that the back seat seemed a bit cramped. In addition, some drivers felt the car was a bit underpowered when compared to competitors' vehicles. Finally, drivers liked the Millennia for its affordability factor, since the automaker had discounted the luxury car's price for the last few years of production. But in the end, it wasn't enough to save the car.
