Mazda6 gets free sat-nav for company car buyers
Fleet and company car drivers can get a free sat-nav on the Mazda6 for the rest of 2013
The Mazda6 is now available with a free sat-nav for company car and fleet buyers, until the end of this year.
The sat-nav usually costs £700, and should save these buyers money on company car tax as well, since current rules mean fleet buyers pay tax on optional extras. The offer is available to businesses that contract hire through leasing companies, or to small businesses through a Mazda dealer.

The free sat-nav offer is available on both the Mazda6 saloon and Mazda6 Tourer estate models, and with any engine in the range. These include a 2.2-litre diesel that gets 67.3mpg and emits 108g/km of CO2, and a 2.0-litre petrol engine. Both can be pared with a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
The upgrade should prove popular with fleet buyers as the Mazda6 SE-L Nav model with the 2.2-litre diesel engine is already the most popular in the range. That car costs £23,495, but until the end of 2013 fleet buyers will be able to pay £22,795 for the standard SE-L model and get sat-nav free.
TomTom, a well-known satellite-navigation brand, powers the sat-nav system used in the Mazda6. The installed unit features voice control, traffic information, places of interest and a speed camera locator. However, after the first three months some of these services require a subscription.
Prices for the Mazda6 start at £19,595 for the entry-level SE model and go up to £28,295 for the top-spec Sport Nav models. All models feature LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps, alloy wheels, Bluetooth, USB and a 5.8-inch touchscreen display as standard. The top-spec Sport model is loaded with equipment, including 19-inch alloy wheels, parking sensors, a reversing camera and a Bose stereo.
