Mazda expands fleet model range
Mazda’s seven-seat Mazda5 will have a new low emission diesel engine added to its line-up in January, expanding the company’s fleet model range to five.
Currently the Mazda5 is on sale with 1.8-litre 115PS and a 2.0-litre 150PS petrol engines both available in TS, TS2 and Sport trim levels and priced between £17,695 and £21,495.
Mazda is pushing the Mazda5’s business credentials on the back of the new engine addition for the Mazda5.
Mazda Fleet and Remarketing Director Peter Allibon said: “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.
“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."
Currently the Mazda6 is the company’s most popular fleet car with the model accounting for more than half of Mazda’s core fleet sales.
The Japanese manufacturer however expects the new Mazda2-with improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions- to improve its sales with the cost-effective make-up of the model being stressed.
