Mazda is showcasing the new Mazda 3 Saloon to key fleet influencers this week, which comes exclusively with the brand’s new Skyactiv-X petrol engine.
Emitting just 96g/km of CO2, the new Spark Controlled Compression Ignition (SPCCI) engine delivers 180PS giving it strong performance and low running costs.
Prices start at £23,335, with BIK rates from 23%.
Steve Tomlinson, head of fleet at Mazda UK, said: “With its Skayactiv-X engine the Mazda3 Saloon is the perfect option for company cars drivers who are looking for an elegant alternative to an SUV.
“There is still an increasing demand for fleet drivers who appreciate the superior driving dynamics of a saloon car, especially one that is packed with an array of high level safety equipment as standard such as adaptive cruise control, head-up display and rear-cross traffic alert.
“Fleet managers can be confident that adding the Mazda3 Skyactiv-X Saloon to their choice list will ensure they don’t need to pay over the odds for drivers to have a premium, stylish and well-equipped saloon.”
Mazda’s Skyactiv-X engine is matched to the Mazda M Hybrid 24V mild-hybrid system that recycles recovered kinetic energy. A belt-driven integrated starter generator (ISG) converts the energy in the 600kJ lithium-ion battery, while the DC-DC converter supplies it to the car's electrical equipment, further improving efficiency.
The eight-model Mazda3 Saloon range features Sport, Sport Lux, GT Sport and GT Sport Tech trim levels, with a choice of automatic or manual transmission for every grade. All versions include a windscreen projecting colour head-up display with traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise Control and LED headlights.
Highlighted to key fleet influencers next week at an event in the Midlands, and now on the business demonstration fleet, the all-new Mazda3 Saloon is available to order now.
