Mazda aims to further penetrate UK’s fleet market with Mazda CX-5

Article by Anita Panait, on June 29, 2012

Spearheading Mazda’s further penetration of the fleet market in the United Kingdom is the all-new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover sports utility vehicle that features the innovative SKYACTIV technology. The Mazda CX-5 received positive response from fleet managers and representatives of contract hire and leasing firms during its fleet launch at Rockingham, Northamptonshire.

Giving the Mazda CX-5 the much-needed image boost is the SKYACTIV technology that increases performance, safety, and fuel economy as well as lower emissions.

The SKYACTIV technology promises to reshape the automotive landscape as it becomes part of Mazda’s upcoming models. Fleet managers are sure to be more than satisfied with Mazda cars bearing the SKYACTIV technology, with attractive key figures on mpg, CO2 emissions, list price, benefit-in-kind tax (BiK), residual values and indicative total operating costs.

With around 18 variants available, the Mazda CX-5 has on-the-road prices ranging from £21,395 for the 2.0-litre SE-L SKYACTIV-G 165ps petrol to £28,795 for the flagship 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D 175ps diesel Sport Nav Auto all-wheel drive (AWD). Mazda offers four trim levels for the two-wheel drive (2WD) petrol engine range: SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav. On the combined cycle, the petrol Mazda CX-5 returns 47.1 mpg and emits 139g/km of CO2.

Meanwhile, the 2.2-litre diesel engine range comes in a variety of choices. A buyer could opt to acquire a Mazda CX-5 powered by an SKYACTIV engine channelling either 150ps or 175ps of power through either manual or automatic transmissions to either two or all wheels. A buyer could also choose from four equipment levels: SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav. On the combined cycle, the diesel Mazda CX-5 returns 61.4mpg and emits 119g/km of CO2.
