Mazda is introducing a number of special deals for its Motability programme on selected Mazda3 and Mazda MX-5 models until the end of 2011 alongside the continued availability of the Mazda2 automatic with no advance payment.
The Mazda3 1.6 TS hatchback with either manual or automatic transmission is now available for Motability drivers, for an advanced payment of £499. The Mazda3 automatic features a 4 speed gearbox with fully automatic and manual modes. The 105PS engine achieves 37.2mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 176g/km. Standard features include alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control air-conditioning, electric front and rear windows and a leather steering wheel with integrated audio controls.
The Mazda MX-5 is now available for an advanced payment of £499 for the 1.8i SE model and £849 for the 1.8SE Air Con.
Steve Jelliss, Mazda Fleet and Remarketing Director responsible for the Motability programme, commented: "There are more than 700 Mazda3 models on Motability contracts which are due for renewal in the final quarter of 2011 and our autumn deals will provide our customers with another compelling reason to stay with the Mazda brand, whilst our dealers can also offer a much stronger proposition to other Motability drivers, in particular on the Mazda3 1.6 TS Automatic.
"Meanwhile, the Mazda MX-5 remains an iconic car in the minds of most British motorists and has always proved popular when offered on the Motability programme. We have therefore re-introduced the roadster to the autumn programme in response to customer demand," added Jelliss.
The Mazda2 TS2 model benefits from a 1.5 litre 102PS engine and four speed automatic transmission. 0-62mph is reached in 11.9 seconds with CO2 emissions of 146g/km.
