Mazda all set for 2015

Mazda have made changes to two of their flagship models for the new 2015 15 plate release in March

The Mazda 6 and the Mazda CX-5 are the two cars in question, with positive and additional equipment available as standard. The new face-lift models will see additional options added at no extra cost. The Face lift idea is to shift current production car in anticipation for a future model, usually due 1-2 years later. Mazda has coupled this face-lift run of the Mazda 6 and Mazda CX-5 in line with the March 15 plate release.

Mazda have added a few hundred pounds to each model, but the benefits far outweigh the slight price increase. The face lift Mazda 6 and CX-5 will be available for delivery around April time at the moment, going forward it will be an 8-10 week delivery until Mazda opens the floodgates by stocking up the vehicle holding centres. These new releases will look to take business away from Ford’s new Mondeo and Nissan’s Qashqai

 

On the Mazda 6 you will benefit greatly if you go for the Sport Nav model with an additional safety pack that was previously a cost-option of around £500. You will also get a new electronic handbrake and a DAB radio as standard.

Mazda has the latest in engine innovation with the award-winning SkyActiv technology and that means the 148bhp 2.2-litre diesel engine is does amazingly well on economy: emitting just 104g/km of CO2 and can deliver 67.3mpg. The higher powered 173bhp derivative can achieve an impressive 62.8mpg. When you go for the auto gearbox it can harm your economy by a few mpg.

 

The new Mazda CX-5 Facelift was announced just after the Mazda 6 and completed Mazda’s run of face-lift models for 2015. This facelift CX-5 is seen as a direct and competitive rival to the hugely successful Nissan Qashqai, with its design pedigree and super-efficient engines that it can thank SkyActiv technology for. Mazda enter the compact SUV crossover market some years ago now and seem to be catching the market leaders Nissan in terms of demand and sale figures.

                     

Mazda have looked to improve and add to the current CX-5 by adding a new front grille to the sport-nav model, as well as new LED fog lights and wing mirror LED indicator lights. There is also change within the cabin, with a new electronic park brake, chrome inserts and a new helpful extended armrest for the driver.
