Mazda Venture and Kuro models now available to fleets for the first time

Article by Christian A., on September 10, 2012

Leasing companies can now take advantage of standard contract hire support terms on special edition models for the first time ever. These include the new Venture Edition models, which are offered throughout the Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda5 ranges, as well as the two special edition Mazda MX-5 ‘Kuro’ models.

According to Steve Tomlinson, Mazda Head of Fleet, the new Venture Editions and Kuro models are expected to appeal to fleet decision-makers and company car drivers. These will also help in raising fleet demand. A 5.8-inch Sanyo TomTom satellite navigation system will be used on all Venture models. The system will have integrated Bluetooth, gunmetal alloy wheels and front fog lights.

The Mazda2 Venture has a starting price of £12,995 on-the-road. It is based on the 84ps 1.3-litre MZR 5dr Tamura, which already has impressive specifications. It emits 115g/km of CO2 and has a combined cycle fuel economy of 56.5mpg.

The Mazda3 Venture has a starting price of £17,495 on-the-road and is offered with either a 105ps 1.6-litre MZR petrol (with a CO2 emissions level of 144g/km and combined cycle fuel economy of 44.8mpg) or 115ps 1.6-litre diesel (emits 115g/km of CO2 and combined cycle fuel economy of 65.7mpg) engines.

With a starting price of £19,995 on-the-road, the Mazda5 Venture is available with either a 150ps 2.0-litre MZR petrol (CO2 emissions of 159g/km and combined cycle fuel economy of 40.9mpg) or 115ps 1.6-litre diesel engine (138g/km of CO2 and a 54.3mpg combined cycle fuel economy). The Mazda ‘MX-5 Kuro’ models (Kuro is the Japanese word for Black) are based on the MX-5 SE and Sport Tech models.

The Kuro is offered as a 126ps 1.8i Soft-top (priced at £18,495 on-the-road) and a 160ps 2.0i Roadster Coupe (£21,995 on-the-road) with extra specification features when compared to the donor car. Its exterior is more focused on sports and its interior uses leather stylishly.
