Mazda has updated its Titan light-duty truck for the Japanese market, with sales begining today (16 June) at all Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers nationwide.

The updated Titan's diesel engine delivers improved emissions performance, enabling the truck to meet Japan's Post New Long-Term Emissions Regulations without the need for an aqueous urea selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system.

The improvement ensures the freshened Titan can be used in urban areas that lack a urea supply infrastructure.

Additionally, all the front-wheel-drive (FWD) diesel engine models qualify for Japan's eco-car tax incentives by meeting the 2015 fuel economy standard for light commercial vehicles and are certified as low-emission vehicles in nine metropolitan areas rated 'excellent' on the 2010 low-emission vehicle standards.
