Two new additions to the highly popular Mazda Fleet Program are now available to Australian ‘large fleet’ customers operating in excess of 25 vehicles.
Initially consisting of the Mazda BT-50 range since 2020, the Mazda Large Fleet Program now incorporates the latest CX-5 and CX-8 SUVs. As with the BT-50, all model grades in the CX-5 and CX-8 range can be specified.
Fleet operators taking advantage of the expanded scheme will be ordering the latest CX-5, which has a range of revisions for 2023. The updated model grade line-up consists of Maxx, Maxx Sport, Touring, GT SP and Akera, and the range is now exclusively powered by the Skyactiv-G 2.0-litre, 2.5-litre or 2.5-litre turbo petrol powertrains in FWD or AWD, depending on the specification chosen.
Platinum Quartz joins the colour line-up (replacing Sonic Silver), and the G20 Maxx gains wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, now with touchscreen functionality for both operating systems.
For the G25 Touring, 19-inch black machined alloy wheels are complemented by seats now trimmed in full Maztex (previously Maztex and suede), while the G25 and G35 GT SP and Akera models both receive a hands-free power tailgate and a new front grille design that is unique to these model grades.
Akera also comes with attractive new interior inlays in contrast to the Dark Russet Nappa leather, replacing the wood finish fitted previously.
The Mazda CX-8 range – comprising Sport, Touring, Touring Active, GT SP, Asaki and Asaki LE – was comprehensively updated earlier this year, introducing the 10.25-inch widescreen Mazda Connect infotainment, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, USB-C ports upfront and styling enhancements. It is powered by the refined G25 Skyactiv-G petrol or efficient D35 Skyactiv-D diesel, depending on the model grade specified.
Jarrod Gieschen, Mazda Australia’s Director of Sales, commented: “Renowned for their ample versatility, immersive driveability and enduring quality, the CX-5 and CX-8 are now very welcome additions to the Mazda Fleet program that open up more choice to our valued fleet customers.
“Both models offer immense flexibility, with a range of powertrains, front- or all-wheel drive, diverse model grades and even the choice of six or seven seats in the CX-8 – so there truly is a CX-5 or CX-8 that can be enjoyed by every fleet customer.”
In addition to preferential pricing, all Mazda Large Fleet customers benefit from priority stock allocation and loan evaluation vehicles, as well as 5 years of premium roadside assistance and 5 years of unlimited-kilometre warranty. The Mazda Large Fleet program is also available to key leasing companies across Australia, as well as rental companies and local, state or federal government.
Fleet providers looking to enquire about the level of discount available, as well as other pertinent information on the program, should enquire with their local Mazda dealer or via the Mazda Large Fleet Specialist team.
