Mazda Brawny technical specification and data

Disclaimer: The information below is for general guidance only and the author cannot be held responsible for errors or omissions.

The Mazda Bongo Brawny has been compared to the Mazda Bongo Friendee. Whereas the Friendee was intended for use as a family vehicle, the Brawny was generally aimed at the commercial market and used as a van. It does not have the same interior, exterior or mechanical specification as a Bongo Friendee. Earlier Brawnys have a 2 litre petrol engine and produce about 76ps at 4000rpm with a maximum torque of 17.5kg*m at 2000rpm. Compare this to the commonly available Friendee 2.5 diesel with approx max torque of 125ps at 4000rpm and 30.0kg*m at 2000rpm. The Brawny was produced as an automatic and manual vehicle, and later with a more powerful 3 litre diesel engine.
