Dealers see demand for used Mazda cars

Time 8 years ago

MazdaDEALERS across the country are witnessing a surge in interest for used Mazda cars, with an annual demand of approximately 70,000.

Latest data from British Car Auctions (BCA) shows that used car values increased year-on-year by 17.3 percent in June to an average of £7,000 with demand particularly strong for cars that are ready-to-retail.

According to Mazda UK sales director, Peter Allibon, Mazda has helped customers retain the value of their cars by considering the impact on future values and the surge in demand dates back four years ago when supply for new cars was reduced due to the recession.

Allibon said: ‘This means there’s never been a better time for people to trade in a used Mazda for a new one because they can be confident of a competitive deal.’

He added: ‘There is annual demand for around 70,000 used Mazda cars and we’re only selling 30,000 new ones a year at the moment, so people buying a new Mazda now can also be confident that their car will be in demand and therefore hold its value better than many other models for years to come.’
