Mazda offers Scots fleet solution 17 | 11 | 2010

    MAZDA IS TO step up its efforts to increase its share of the fleet market in Scotland by offering decision-makers a comprehensive five-model range from January when a low emission diesel version of its new seven-seat compact multi-activity vehicle goes on sale.

    The seven-seat Mazda5 has already gone on sale in Scotland with the option of 1.8-litre 115ps and 2.0-litre 150ps petrol engines; the 1.6-litre 115ps 138g/km turbo diesel unit completes the powertrain line-up in January 2011.

    “With the arrival of the Mazda5 diesel we will be offering fleets a complete five-model range, Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda5, Mazda6 and CX-7 topped by the iconic MX-5," Mazda Fleet and Remarketing Director Peter Allibon said.

    “It is a huge step forward from where Mazda was just four years ago when only the Mazda6 could be described as meeting the demands of fleet operators and company car drivers.

    “Now, rather than a single car Mazda is able to offer businesses a complete fleet solution from an urban super mini through to load-carriers required by high-mileage reps and on to lifestyle vehicles for user-choosers.”

    The Mazda5 range, includes the 1.8 TS priced at £17,695 on the road, the 2.0 TS2 £18,895, the 2.0 Sport £20,195, the 1.6D TS2 £20,195 and the 1.6D Sport £21,495.

    “Fleet decision-makers and company car drivers want stylish cars that are reliable and cost-effective to operate with low emissions and first-class fuel economy," Allibon continued.

    “Mazda is delivering all of those credentials across its model range giving fleet operators low cost of ownership figures and company car drivers’ wallet-friendly company car tax bills while at the wheel of highly-specced cars.”
