Mazda3 upgrades mean savings for drivers

Mazda3 upgrades mean savings for drivers

Fleet operators, businesses offering company cars and individual drivers alike could be clamouring to get behind the wheel of the new Mazda3.

That is after the Japanese manufacturer explained that the upgraded version will be kinder on motorists' pockets due to improved efficiency.

According to the firm's data, the new 1.6 Sport Diesel version – part of a 16 standard model line-up – now offers 3.5 per cent fewer CO2 emissions.

The company has also claimed that miles-per-gallon figures have been improved, offering drivers lower fuel bills – something that is increasingly important with pump prices on the rise.

Steve Jelliss, Mazda fleet and remarketing director, said: "Improvements in emissions as well as fuel economy on most models have been coupled with the addition of a new 1.6 Sport Diesel model. 

"This, alongside Mazda's established core fleet strengths of excellent vehicle reliability, strong residual values and fun-to-drive characteristics, means Mazda3's corporate appeal has been strengthened even further."
