The Mazda CX-5 is the first new model featuring the SKYACTIV Technology which will deliver major fuel savings and emission reductions for fleets. The result of this is major wholelife cost savings for fleet operators as well as significant financial benefits for company car drivers.

The Mazda CX-5, on sale in 2012 in the UK, features a range of new powerful and fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines with low emissions.

Lower vehicle operation costs, reduced fuel bills and savings in vehicle-related taxes including capital allowances Vehicle Excise Duty, Class 1A National Insurance contributions for businesses and benefit-in-kind tax for drivers can all be expected by fleet decision makers and company car drivers.

Mazda's 165PS SKYACTIV-G 2.0 litre petrol engine and SKYACTIV-D 2.2 diesel engine will be available for the Mazda CX-5.
