Mazda6 Wagon awarded - Best Estate Car
Mazda6 2.2D Wagon is awarded "Best Estate Car 2010" in Fleet World Honours 2010. The car offers perfect combination between driver appeal, lifestyle, versatility and practicality. The awards were announced at the Royal Automobile Club, London on 18 May.
"Mazda continues to build on its solid reputation in the fleet market as a manufacturer of stylish and attractive cars. But it also features all the clever touches we have come to expect from Mazda, converting from a five-seater into a load-lugger in a matter of seconds.", said Steve Moody, Chairman of Judges.
Mazda6 Estate is powered by 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine with 163ps and it is priced at £20 559 on-the-road. The car managed to beat the tough competition including Skoda Superb Estate, Toyota Avensis Estate and Honda Accord Estate.
"Mazda has yet again successfully combined a sporty appeal with a very practical model creating that competitive edge in the D-segment. This further recognition from the fleet industry represents the superb reputation that the Mazda6 range has developed over the past eight years since the original launch.", commented Peter Alibon, Fleet and Remarketing Director for Mazda UK.
"We have firm hopes that this will continue as the Upgraded Mazda6 launched this spring represents great value for fleet operators with strong residual values, keen pricing, driver appeal and impressive CO² emissions.", he added.
Mazda6 range has been recently upgraded and entered showrooms with a choice of two body styles – hatchback and estate, six engines – three petrol and three diesel and four equipment levels: S, TS, TS2 and Sport. The Mazda6 Wagon 2.0 TS is priced from £19 295 on-the-road and offers perfect value for money.
