The special edition version of the four-door Mazda6 saloon, launched last year and kitted out specifically to appeal to business drivers, is on sale now in the UK.
And Mazda says strong residual values have been predicted by vehicle pricing expert CAP, which says a Mazda6 Business Line car will keep 41 per cent of its value after three years (or 30,000 miles).
“We anticipate further significant corporate interest in the Mazda6 ‘Business Line’,” said Mazda Head of Fleet Steve Tomlinson. “The Mazda6 ‘Business Line’ represents fantastic value for a fun-to-drive car with the style, performance and features of our most successful fleet model.”
Mazda also says the new Mazda6 Business Line is available now for immediate delivery, a popular option for fleet drivers.
Tomlinson added: “For fleets the lack of availability of a new company car can prove costly, while for drivers such delays are frustrating.
“However, such problems are not encountered when ordering the Mazda6 ‘Business Line’ as stock is available across the Mazda UK network.”
Packed full of equipment for business users, the Mazda6 Business Line includes TomTom satellite navigation as standard along with Bluetooth, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, steering wheel mounted audio controls and 17″ alloy wheels.
It also comes with free metallic paint in silver, blue or black to complete the premium feel to the saloon.
The Mazda6 Business Line comes with a 2.2-litre diesel engine delivering 55.4mpg and 133g/km of CO2 emissions. This puts it into Band B of UK road tax, the second-lowest payment available, and offers beneficial CO2-based Benefit-In-Kind rates.
The new Mazda6 Business Line is on sale now from Perrys Mazda dealerships with prices starting from £18,305.
