MAZDA is broadening its appeal to corporate buyers with the launch of a fleet-specific model.
The Mazda6 ‘Business Line’ will give company car drivers a highly specified vehicle at a competitive price.
Available with a 2.2-litre diesel engine producing 127 bhp, and priced at £18,300, the 6 Business Line emits 138g/km of CO2, and sits in the 20 per cent benefit-in-kind tax bracket for 2011/12.
Three colours will be on offer – Black Mica, Sunlight Silver Metallic and Stormy Blue Mica – and the car will feature standard model specification, plus a Sanyo TomTom sat nav system with Bluetooth and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Mazda’s fleet and remarketing director Steve Jelliss said: ‘With this well equipped, fleet focused Mazda6 model, we are anticipating significant incremental sales. This is the first time Mazda has introduced a model specifically intended to appeal to company car drivers through a combination of both features and attractive benefit-in-kind rates.”
Company car drivers will pay 20 percent benefit-in-kind tax in 2011/12 on a P11D value of £18,130.
