The All-new Mazda 6 Defies the Competition to Save Company Car Drivers Money
The all-new Mazda 6 can provide company car drivers a top-notch diesel performance with class-leading emissions and excellent fuel economy, thanks to Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV technology.
Mazda’s engineers have delivered an upper-medium-segment car with leading environmental-friendliness without resorting to the smaller engine displacements like some of its rivals.
The all-new Mazda 6 which is available from January next year, will be available in a Saloon or Tourer body style and company car drivers have the choice of two diesel and two petrol engines and six trim levels (SE, SE-Nav, SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav).
The two diesel engines are the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D 150ps and 175ps and the two petrol engines are the 2.0-litre SKYACTIV-G 145ps and 165ps.
Some manufactures have introduced smaller engines into the CD segment model ranges to try and win over company car drivers who want low emissions and fuel-sipping models. This However can compromise in loss of power and performance.
The Mazda 6 2.2 litre SKYACTIV-D offers drivers 150ps and the lowest CO2 emissions figure in its class of 108g/km and 67.3mpg, all of the figures are better than the Ford Mondeo 1.6 TDCi and Passat TDI . This means that company car driver benefit-in-kind tax bills see figures below.

He continues “On top of all that company car drivers’ save themselves money with the 2.2-litre SKYACTIV-D 150ps engine powering the all-new Mazda6, having the lowest CO2 emissions figure in the class. That also translates into Class 1A National Insurance savings for employers.”
