The Autozam Scrum is a pickup truck in the kei car class, which on the Suzuki Carry is based. It is marketed as a panel van , minibus and truck pickup by Autozam and as a Microvan Mazda Scrum Wagon by Mazda , although the model is only offered as Mazda in its home market of Japan .
First generation Mazda / Autozam Scrum 1989–1991
After Mazda had decided not to develop a successor for the Mazda Porter Cab , it was decided to sell the Suzuki Carry using badge engineering as Mazda Scrum. Sales began in June 1989 based on the ninth generation Carry with the 550 cc Suzuki F5B engines with 34 hp / 25 kW or 52 hp / 38 kW with intercooler turbochargers . After only nine months this was replaced by the larger DG / DH51 660 cm³ with 38 PS / 28 kW or 58 PS / 43 kW and at the same time the Scrum was now offered in all versions as Autozam Scrum and no longer as Mazda.
Second generation Autozam Scrum 1991–1997 / Mazda Scrum 1997–1999, Scrum Wagon 1997–2005
In 1991, the second generation based on the Suzuki Carry (tenth generation) started again as a panel van / minibus, truck and minivan as Autozam Scrum on all markets with the SOHC inline 3-cylinder with 50 hp and with intercooler and turbo charger with 61 hp. The engine was installed under the luggage compartment as a rear engine. Slight modifications were made in February 1993 and June 1995. From April 1997 Scrum was only offered as Mazda Scrum . The microvan was now based on the Suzuki Every and was named Mazda Scrum Wagon . The performance of the SOHC Turbo Intercooler increased to 64 hp.
Third generation Mazda Scrum since 1999
In January 1999, the third generation of Scrum started parallel to the eleventh generation Suzuki Carry as Mazda Scrum on the home market. The engine in the Scrum has since been mounted under the driver's seat and passenger safety has been improved along with improved user-friendliness and larger cargo space. The 3SOHC with 60 HP or 50 HP were initially used as the motors. In addition to front airbags , there were now anti-lock braking systems and seat belts with belt force limiters. As a "PA" and "GA" van, the minibus has electric windows at the front and additional rear heating as standard. As a buster, the model is offered as a panel van / station wagon. In addition, the Scrum is also optionally available with a 3- speed automatic transmission, now also in the all-wheel drive version.
The full aluminum 3DOHC engine with the same output has been installed since September 2001. The dashboard and the front equipment have been redesigned with the aim of a sporty look. Electric windows on the driver's side have been standard equipment in all versions since then.
Mazda Scrum Wagon III since 2005
In September 2005 the third microvan of the series started, again as Mazda Scrum Wagon. In addition to improved safety with front and side airbags and ABS, the variability in the interior has been improved. The 660 cm³ 3-cylinder made of all-aluminum with 49 hp or 64 hp and a 5-speed manual gearbox is also used here. A 3- or 4-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are optionally available.
In July 2007, there was a small revision with improved seating and a modified design of the radiator grille. Since then, bi-xenon headlights have also been available.
A revised version with a modified front design has been on the market since May 2010 and engine consumption has been reduced by around 0.2 l / 100 km.
