SkyActiv enables Mazda CX-5 to boast class-leading fuel economy

Article by Anita Panait, on March 28, 2012

The all-new Mazda CX-5 will be installed with the SKYACTIV technology that has a practical fun-to-drive eco approach, providing class leading fuel economy and low CO2 emissions. The Mazda CX-5 would be an excellent deal for the company’s fleet customers since the vehicle’s fuel economy means reduced running costs and lots of savings.

According to Steve Tomlinson, Head of Fleet for Mazda UK, the SKYACTIV technology allows fleet managers to drastically cut operational costs without compromising performance or handling, adding that the technology offers a complete eco solution. The Mazda CX-5 is well-made to cater to fleet operators as it promises ownership savings and significant financial benefits, when compared to Mazda’s competitors.

EurotaxGlass has forecasted the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel 2WD SE-L 150ps model to have a residual value of £10,666 (46%) at three years per 60,000 miles, which puts it far ahead of Toyota RAV4, Nissan Qashqai and the Ford Kuga.

The 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D diesel 2WD SE-L 150ps model is also a full 10 percentage points better than the Hyundai ix35 Style 2.0-litre CRDi 2WD model, which retains a value of £6,908 (36%) at three years per 60,000 miles.Mazda’s model also has depreciation of around £700 less than that of the Volkswagen Tiguan, which places the CX-5 as the top model in depreciation terms on its class.

Mazda will begin selling the CX-5 this spring with several variants. Mazda will be offering four petrol models and six diesel versions that come with 2-wheel drive. The CX-5’s eight diesel model will come with all-wheel drive. Prices for 2.0-litre petrol versions start from £21,395 OTR for the CX-5 SE-L, rising to £23,995 for the CX-5 Sport NAV. Mazda will also feature the SKYACTIV technology in all of its sixth generation models.
