Mazda – Bongo Friendee
Launched in 1995, the Mazda Bongo Friendee was created as a leisure base for the entire family and friends. The most innovative feature was Auto Free Top, a giant power rooftop that was opened and closed with a touch on a button, creating an attic with a wonderful view with enough space for two adults to lie down and stretch and a spacious atrium inside the car. Other playful features included Hyper Slide Seats and Power Roll Curtains. A minivan that stirred imagination of its owners and their family, the Bongo Friendee was popularly spotted in auto campsites and resting facilities on highways across Japan.
