Mr McGonigle said: ‘The Mazda RX-8 is both aspirational and desirable from the perspectives of fleet decision-makers and company car drivers. Mazda has taken the fleet market by storm over the last two years and the arrival of the Mazda RX-8 takes the brand into another sector.’
Designed with both fun and functionality in mind the Mazda RX-8 with its 2.6 litre rotary engine is a high-performance sports car featuring a unique freestyle door system allowing easy access to the rear two seats with comfortable seating for four adults.
Standard equipment on both models includes 18-inch alloy wheels, ABS with Electronic Brake Distribution, driver, passenger, side and curtain airbags, climate control air conditioning and a BOSE Premium Audio sound system with nine speakers and a six CD auto-changer.
