New Mazda6 gets strong fleet RV prediction from CAP

By / 8 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

The firm said that the new Mazda performs well against its key fleet competitors thanks largely to its Skyactiv Technology-led low emissions.

On UK sale in January 2013 in Saloon and Tourer body styles, CAP has given the car a three-year/60,000-mile residual value uplift of up to 7.5% versus the outgoing model. Residual value predictions for the Mazda6 petrol-engined Saloon range average 31.8%, the petrol-engined Tourer 33%, diesel-engined Saloon 31.6% and the diesel-engined Tourer 32.7%.

Those forecasts, according to CAP, put the new Mazda6 ahead of the Vauxhall Insignia (average 23%), Ford Mondeo (28%), Volkswagen Passat (29%), Honda Accord (30%) and Toyota Avensis (31%).

Mazda forecasts that its biggest fleet seller in the range will be the 2.2-litre 150ps SKYACTIV-D Saloon SE-L Nav, with CO2 emissions of 108g/km and combined cycle fuel economy of 67.3mpg. CAP predicts that the model will have a three-year/60,000-mile residual value of £7,475 (32%).
