New Mazda CX-5 to be a hit with fleets

With the recent release of several compact SUV models in the car market, the awareness of crossovers is rapidly growing.

But as SUV popularity increases, some models lack the competitive edge to take the market. However, the Mazda CX-5 stands out from the crowd with a unique and stylish exterior, complimented by its new Skyactiv technology.

In its first concept unveiling, Mazda’s Skyactiv technology seemed more like a pipe dream – until it was announced that it was to feature on the production CX-5 model. Skyactiv uses a combination of lightweight body materials and efficient engine technology to reduce CO2 emissions.

With Skyactiv technology on offer, the CX-5 has already got off to a flying start in terms of customer deliveries, as one dealership has already taken over 200 orders for the model. As orders for the model continue to roll in, dealerships are confident that the new CX-5 will appeal to fleets.

In terms of fleet car credentials, the Mazda CX-5 ticks all of the boxes as it combines low CO2 emissions with a stylish exterior and well equipped interior.

With the use of a Skyactiv-D 2.2-litre diesel engine, the CX-5 emits just 119g/km of CO2 emissions and returns a combined fuel economy of 62.8mpg.

Standard equipment on the entry level SE-L trim includes front and rear parking sensors, climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels and privacy glass.

Mazda CX-5 prices start from just £21,395.

Mazda vehicles are available from Perrys Mazda dealerships.
