From 1 April Mazda is enhancing three of its family-friendly Mazda3 models, at no extra cost to the customer. Two Venture models, with 1.6-litre petrol or diesel engines, and the 2.2-litre diesel Sport Nav derivative, offer customers significantly added value this spring.
The enhanced Mazda3 trio now has additional equipment such as 17-inch Bright finish alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Black Mica door mirror housings and new sporty black cloth seat trim with red stitching plus the availability of a new exterior colour, Zeal Red Mica (a £495 option), and seven other colours.
Prices for the enhanced Mazda3 models, which already enjoy an unusually generous standard specification, are unchanged – starting at £17,495 on-the-road (OTR) for the 105ps 1.6-litre Venture petrol model and rising to £18,995 for the 115ps 1.6-litre Venture diesel and to £20,995 for the 185ps 2.2-litre Sport Nav diesel.
“Mazda3 was already a great car and the changes to the three enhanced models bring extra style. With extra equipment, zero deposit and 0% APR finance, these Mazda3 models will have added appeal to consumers visiting our dealers’ showrooms this spring,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
“Made exclusively in Japan, the Mazda3 five-door hatchback was Mazda’s best-selling model worldwide in 2012 and the second-best selling model in the UK, after the compact Mazda2. The Mazda3 1.6-litre diesel has been hugely popular and the 2.2-litre diesel with 185ps delivers an amazing combination of high performance and low fuel consumption. It is still one of the highest power C-segment diesel models of any brand available in Britain,” adds Allibon.
In addition to the latest upgrades, the standard specification for the Mazda3 Venture model includes: sports styling, rear spoiler, front fog lamps, privacy glass and a rear bumper sports trim. Inside, there’s a leather steering wheel with audio controls, CD radio with Auxiliary jack and six speakers, plus TomTom satellite navigation with a 5.8-inch touch screen, integrated Bluetooth® hands-free kit, climate control air-conditioning, electric front and rear windows, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control and heated front sports seats to create a genuine premium car ambience.
As well as its high-performance powertrain, the Mazda3 2.2-litre diesel Sport Nav model has an even more distinctive appearance thanks to its new LED rear lights and added practicality with a heated front windscreen. With a six-speed manual transmission as standard, this Mazda3 reaches 62mph in just 8.2 seconds, has a top speed of 132mph, records fuel consumption of 52.3mpg (combined cycle) and has a CO2 emissions rating of 142g/km.
Until the end of June 2013, Mazda is offering a great combination of deals on its upgraded Mazda3 models. Customers can choose 0% APR* finance with zero deposit and low-cost monthly payments from just £274 (Venture) and from £323 (Sport Nav).
Customers buying their new car with a Mazda PCP will also be offered a generous deposit contribution of £1,000 and a loyalty saving, if they already own a Mazda, of £300 with no part-exchange required.
