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.

The 150PS SKYACTIV-D 2.2 Mazda CX-5 has CO2 emissions of 119g/km and 62.8mpg fuel consumption on the combined cycle. The SKYACTIV-G 2.0 petrol engine has CO2 emissions of 139g/km and a combined cycle fuel consumption of 47.1mpg.

SKYACTIV Technology found in the Mazda CX-5 includes aerodynamic improvements, vehicle weight reduction, chassis developments and new manual and automatic transmissions matched to the new engines.

Mazda is aiming to deliver a 30 per cent improvement on the 2008 average fuel economy of vehicles by 2015 as well as 23 per cent improvements in CO2 emissions.

The Mazda6 'Business Line' is priced at £18,300 on the road and has been specifically launched for fleets and company car drivers. Only one highly specified model is available, including a Sanyo TomTom satellite navigation, Bluetooth technology and 17-inch alloy wheels. The 2.2-litre diesel five-door hatchback has been forecasted to retain up to 36 per cent of its £18,130 P11D value at the benchmark three-year/60,000-mile point.
