Company car drivers who need the 1,000kg-plus payload capacity of the B-series would pay benefit-in-kind tax on a flat rate of £500 a year because it is classed as a van.
It means a basic rate tax-payer (22%) would pay £9.16 a month, while a higher rate taxpayer (40%) would pay £16.66 a month.
There is a choice of two engines - an 83bhp normally aspirated 2.5-litre diesel with 144lb-ft of torque at 2,000rpm or a 108bhp 2.5-litre turbodiesel with 196lb-ft of torque.
Prices start at £9,496 ex-VAT for the 4x2 Single-Cab diesel, £11,995 for the 4x4 Single-Cab turbodiesel and £13,495 for the 4x4 double-cab turbodiesel.
Meanwhile, aimed at com-pany car drivers with active lifestyles, the 4x4 RAP Cab 4-Action turbodiesel is priced at £14,995 ex-VAT, 4x4 double- cab 4-Action turbodiesel £15,495 and the 4x4 double-cab 4-Style £17,495.
The RAP Cab 4-Action is fitted with rear-hinged back doors, allowing it to claim an affinity with the new RX-8 sports coupe.
Mazda fleet and remarketing director Jeremy Thomson said: 'These vehicles will appeal to a huge range of customers, from a business user attracted to the image to the recreational customer who needs four-wheel drive performance with load and passenger carrying flexibility and towing capability.'
