More people 'may be able to afford a reliable and attractive car'

Fri, 10 Jul 2009
Motorists who prioritise reliability and style when buying a car may want to check out some new deals from Mazda.

The manufacturer has announced it is upping its scrappage scheme discounts this summer to ensure drivers are getting the most competitive prices possible.

Sales and marketing director Mark Cameron said the bigger discounts should mean more people have access to its famously reliable and stylish motors.

The financial incentives available on the group's vehicles range from £2,000 to £6,000.

Mr Cameron explained: "We have taken the opportunity to review Mazda's range of supporting allowances to ensure we are offering customers the best possible deals for the summer."

To be eligible for the discounts, buyers must have a vehicle to trade in registered at least a decade ago that they are happy to have scrapped.

Meanwhile, people keen to reduce their carbon footprint may want to check out the Mazda3 with start-stop technology.
