Mazda has boosted the appeal of its CX-5 compact SUV range with the addition of a new low emission model.
The new SE-L Lux model is based on the 2.2 litre diesel 150hp 2WD SE-L manual, a popular model among company car drivers, with additional features of a power tilt and slide sunroof, full leather trim, six-way power adjustable driver's seat and heated front seats.
The Mazda CX-5 SE-L Lux costs just £1,200 more than the SE-L, but mazda says delivers significant value when compared with the cost of factory-fit options of rival models.
Mazda head of fleet Steve Tomlinson said: "The Mazda CX-5 already has huge appeal in the fleet sector and the addition of this new model further broadens the attractiveness.
"Fleet managers already understand the benefits of our unique SKYACTIV technology, which critically deliver significant CO2 emissions and MPG benefits over rival models and the Mazda CX-5 2.2-litre 150ps 2WD SE-L Lux will fit neatly into vehicle choice lists where the Sports sits outside of driver grades."
The Mazda CX-5 2.2-litre 150hp 2WD SE-L Lux attracts a 2013/14 company car benefit-in-kind-tax bill of just £146.64 (40% taxpayer) prompting Tomlinson to comment: "That delivers fantastic value for drivers versus any of the competition."
