High demand Mazda2 diesel model offers increased fuel economy and ultra-low road tax

Posted on 21 Aug 2007

It’s new, it’s economical, it’s highly impressive and its low CO2 emissions is going to leave motorists quids at JenningsMazda in Middlesbrough.

Demand is extremely high with orders already being taken on the new Mazda2 diesel model. Built on the appeal of the sharp-looking petrol variant, the curvy, compact Mazda2 diesel model is now available and ready to test drive at the group’s Cargo Fleet Lane dealership in Middlesbrough.

Two equipment levels of the TS and TS2 models are currently available with the same generous levels of standard equipment already on the new petrol models. Both models are powered by a newly developed 1.4-litre common-rail turbo diesel engine.

Curvy, compact lines give the baby Mazda a sporting look. The TS2 model is available with 15” alloy wheels, side and curtain airbags, body coloured electric, heated, folding door mirrors, four audio speakers, 60/40 split rear seats, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, leather steering wheel and gear knob and manual air-conditioning.

James Chorlton, franchise manager at JenningsMazda in Middlesbrough, said; “The Mazda2 model has been a huge success for Mazda and the arrival of the diesel model has been generating an extremely positive and encouraging response from customers.”

“While the look and styling of the Mazda2 still plays an important role in the buying process, more customers are becoming increasingly aware of environmental issues.”

“With a CO2 figure of 114g/km and 65.7 mpg, the new Mazda2 diesel falls in the Band-B road fund licence rating and will only cost customers £35 a year in tax, which is an incredible saving.”

Mazda expects the new diesel models to account for 12% of Mazda2 sales.
