"With this well equipped, fleet focused Mazda6 model, we are anticipating significant incremental sales. This is the first time Mazda has introduced a model specifically intended to appeal to company car drivers through a combination of both features and attractive benefit-in-kind rates.", commented Mazda Fleet and Remarketing Director Steve Jelliss.

"Drivers choosing the new Mazda6 ‘Business Line' model will pay just £60.43 a month if a basic rate taxpayer or £120.87 a month if a higher rate taxpayer. That represents fantastic value-for-money for a car with the style, performance and features of our latest model." Mr. Jelliss added.

"With an anticipated monthly contract hire rate lower than significant rival models, the Mazda6 ‘Business Line' will sit in the company car band below the premium badge cars. Consequently, iven its tax rating and specification levels, we also anticipate the car will appeal to employees choosing a car within a salary sacrifice scheme." Mr. Jelliss finished.
