Audi and Mazda sign up for biggest CCiA yet

Company Car in Action, the world’s biggest fleet event, is set to get even bigger after Audi and Mazda announced they will be bringing cars to the show.

Audi is the fastest-growing brand in the fleet market, with sales this year up nearly 5,000 units on the same period in 2006 – in itself a record year. It will be bringing A3, A4, A6, Q7 and TT for fleet managers to drive around the Millbrook test circuits.

Nathan Dennis, fleet sales marketing manager at Audi UK said: “Company Car in Action is the biggest show of its kind and we felt we had to be there. We’ve launched so many important new models, with the stunning new A5 coupe joining the range this summer.

“CCiA allows us to show fleet managers our increasingly strong range – and next year we launch a further six new models so we need to be at events of this type to ensure the fleet industry is fully informed of all the exciting developments with the Audi brand.”

Audi is also looking to spring a racy surprise on visitors to its stand – find out on the day.

Mazda has confirmed it will be presenting a UK-first reveal at Company Car in Action as well as giving visitors the chance to drive its complete range of cars.

It will be treating visitors to a UK exclusive first look at the new CX-7, due on sale in September. Although not available to drive, fleet managers will be the first people in the country to see the sporty SUV in the metal.

But the company will have the rest of its range there to drive around the test tracks, including the 255bhp Mazda3 MPS superhatch and the new high-powered Mazda3 2.0-litre diesel, as well as the Mazda6, Mazda5, MX-5 and RX-8.
