Strong Residual Values
Mazda has an enduring and well deserved reputation for having excellent residual values, therefore giving you the reassurance that as your fleet requirements evolve, you can be confident that your investment will provide a return that is above the industry standard. This is great news also if you finance your fleet through contract hire or leasing arrangements as it means that your monthly rentals will be amongst the most competitive in the market.
Many factors affect the level of depreciation on a car. The reasons why our cars have such a great reputation for residual value performance are numerous. Mazda's superb build quality and reliability, the high levels of equipment specification, the competitive insurance bandings and excellent safety features are just some of the reasons why our cars consistently stand out amongst competition when it comes to holding on to excellent residual values.
Take a look at some of the examples of Mazda's residual value performance below.
Since launch the Mazda2 has shown consistently class-leading residual value performance. By incorporating Mazda's all important "Gram Strategy" into its design and it's low CO2 emissions have contributed towards strong forecast residual values at launch of Mazda2 in September 2007 of 39% of MRRP beating a host of competitors in this segment including Honda Jazz and VW Polo.
Historically the Mazda3 has always shown very solid and consistent residual value performance with values consistently showing an average of 32% of new list price during 2007 and 2008 to date. As with any car in our range, it benefits from excellent security features including Thatcham alarms and immobilisers as standard which is another important aspect of consideration for maintaining good levels of depreciation.
The Mazda6 is proving to be a real winner when it comes to residual value performance. Since launch of the all new Mazda6 it has continued to be one of the best performers in its segment with 3 year/60,000 forecast values consistently showing an average of 35% of MRRP which puts it well ahead of Vauxhaull Insignia and Ford Mondeo. Its low P11D price together with its high levels of equipment included within its standard specification ensure that its residual values remain strong.
The Mazda MX-5 continues to uphold its reputation as a car that has outstanding residual value performance. It is one of the strongest performers in the convertible segment beating many of the newer entrants into this area. The Mazda MX-5 is recognised as The World's Best Selling Sports Car and the latest generation model continues to be the epitome of "Zoom Zoom".
