Mazda has enjoyed another year of consistent growth in the UK, largely down to the ongoing success of the delightful MX-5 roadster as well as the dynamic CX-3 and CX-5 SUV models, but the regular sized Mazdas have also been doing their bit to give the Japanese brand a major foothold in the UK market. Let’s explore what's on offer for the first quarter of 2019 and why you should consider a Mazda as your next car.
Starting with the Mazda 2 supermini. This energetic runaround possesses a certain charm and appeal that few competitors can parallel. Arguably only the Volkswagen Up! Offers as much character as the Mazda 2 but the Mazda is available for significantly less than the VW. In fact, you can get the Mazda 2 from as little as £159 per month on a 42 month deal with Mazda, and the dealership will contribute a juicy £2,000 to your deposit. Alternatively, Mazda is also offering an appealing 24 month deal for £199 per month with 0% APR available. This might be more appealing for people that don’t want to commit to a longer-term contract, and Mazda will still contribute up to £1,500 to the deposit.
Both of those offers are PCP deals on the Mazda 2 SE+ model which comes loaded with 15” alloy wheels, start/stop button, hill hold assist, metallic paint and a load of other bits of equipment.
The Mazda 3 must be the best niche-choice medium hatchback on the market. The long, sweeping bonnet imposes itself on the road and the rounded, bulbous rear end makes it looks squat and ready to pounce. Buyers tend to love just how much kit you get included with the 3. The trim levels are all-encompassing and you won’t find yourself digging too far into the optional extras list to build the Mazda 3 that you want.
The Mazda 3 is also extremely affordable at the moment too. You can land a brand new model with 0% APR on a 24-month deal for just £309 a month. That’s an extremely manageable offer when you consider the length the contract and the fact that Mazda will also contribute £1,000 to the deposit. Alternatively, you could opt for a 42-month deal at £249 per month with a low-interest rate of just 4.1%.
These deals are both for a high spec SE-L Nav model with Sat-Nav, tinted windows, Led fog-lights, rear parking sensors, heated seats and dual-zone climate control.
And a final exceptional offer available is on the Mazda 6. This saloon can also be considered an off-the-wall choice but nonetheless, it's another delight to own and run. The Mazda 6 has many winning features that will attract buyers. The interior is plush, well organised and easy on the eye. The seats, both front and rear, are delightfully comfortable and highly adjustable. The driving experience is better than most others in this class and, what might be the biggest ‘pro’ is the equipment list. Mazda has jam-packed the equipment and technology into the trim levels of the Mazda 6, so whichever level your budget reaches you will not be shortchanged in terms of kit when compared to similarly priced alternatives.
Interestingly, the 42 month PCP deal from Mazda on the Mazda 6 is even cheaper than it is for the Mazda 3, with monthly prices starting from £219 a month although this is with 4.1% APR. Alternatively, the interest-free option on the 24 month deal from Mazda comes in at a very reasonable £259 per month. Both of these deals are on the SE-L Nav+ model which comes with sat-nav, front and rear sensors, metallic paint, 17” alloys, Mazda radar cruise control and a heads up display projected on the windscreen. That’s an exceptional value.
