In an effort to highlight its technology and engineering philosophy known as Jinba Ittai which literally translates to horse-and rider-as-one, Bermaz Auto PH, distributors of the Mazda brand in the country recently held a public test drive at the open parking lot of the Uptown Mall at the Bonifacio Global City .
The four-day event provided access to the public, as Mazda presented its fleet of SKYACTIV models. Participants test drove the cars in a controlled environment and had a crash course in defensive driving which was prepared by Japan trained Jinba Ittai driving instructors and veteran rally drivers led by 10-time Philippine Rally Champion Vip Isada.
“Jinba Ittai is Mazda’s guiding principle in its quest to achieve heightened driving enjoyment together with a premium passenger riding experience,” shares Steven Tan, president and CEO of Bermaz Auto Philippines, the exclusive distributor of Mazda vehicles in the country. “Mazda brings the driver and his car together through this fundamental engineering philosophy so the experience behind the wheel can be fun while, at the same time, less tiring for all riding passengers. This unique feeling is what we want our customers to discover during their time at the Jinba Ittai Academy.”
Customers were also entitled to promotions exclusive to the event, all of which were guaranteed to make purchasing a Mazda vehicle easier and more rewarding. On-site special deals were also available to those who made reservations during the four-day event.
Jinba Ittai Academy visitors were treated to a mini car show as various car clubs led by Mazdatech Philippines showcased their rides during the Mazda Revolution Car Show. A total of 70 various Mazda models spanning different generations from the Mazda2ners, Mazda3 SKYACTIV, CX-5 Club Pilipinas, Club Mazda Philippines and the Miata Club Philippines, were lined up along the Uptown Parade walkway providing spectators a one-of-a-kind overview of the rich heritage of the Mazda brand.
