VALUE: CAP verdict is good news for fleets
The new Mazda3 will offer segment-leading residual values, CAP Automotive have confirmed.
Beating off the likes of the Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Peugeot 208, Renault Megane, Toyota Auris and Vauxhall Astra, the SKYACTIV Mazda3 will boast a 37% residual value over the standard three-year fleet term.
It will also offer a leading forecast average range depreciation of £12,618, over the same 60,000-mile benchmark.
Meanwhile, CO2 emissions will start from 104g/km; lower in the Mazda3 than most of the segment challengers.
“All-new Mazda3 delivers fantastic value to fleet managers in terms of cost reduction, which is a key contributor to all-important whole life cost figures.”

Steve Tomlinson, Head of Fleet at Mazda, said: “All-new Mazda3 delivers fantastic value to fleet managers in terms of cost reduction, which is a key contributor to all-important whole life cost figures on which many businesses base their company car choice lists.
“Meanwhile, all company car drivers are looking to reduce their tax bills and free up cash to meet other expenditure.
“The all-new Mazda3 delivers class-leading CO2 emissions with no compromise on performance giving a real alternative to the traditional in both the C and C/D segments.”
The Mazda3 is priced from £16,695.
