Company car drivers will save themselves hundreds of pounds in benefit-in-kind tax with the showroom arrival of Mazda6 diesel models that meet tough new vehicle emission standards.
The launch of the hi-tech diesel engines in the multi award-winning Mazda6 puts the manufacturer at the forefront of the diesel revolution that is sweeping the UK following the launch of a carbon dioxide emission-based company car tax system 18 months ago.
Couple savings on benefit-in-kind tax with ultra-competitive list prices, strong residual values and low wholelife operating costs and it is little wonder that the manufacturer’s sales, led by the Mazda6, are almost 50% up year-on-year.
Under company car tax rules drivers of Euro IV emission approved diesel-engined cars escape the 3% supplement levied on vehicles that don’t meet the new ‘clean’ standard.
Drivers have a choice of two Euro IV diesel engines in the Mazda6 saloon and hatchback – a 2.0 121 PS powerplant emitting just 172 g/km of CO2 (177 g/km in the estate) and a 2.0 136 PS derivative emitting 174 g/km of CO2. The latter will not be available in the estate line-up immediately so Mazda will retain the current Euro III-approved 2.0 136 PS engine.
