Mazda Reduces Finance Offers but Improves Scrappage Allowances

Wed, 01 Jul 2009
Mazda has increased its finance offers to 5.9% APR (still better than most competitors for scrappage customers).

But the company has also improved customer allowances from the minimum £2,000 (£1,000 from Mazda and £1,000 from the government) to as much as £6,000 on some models.

Mazda2 £2,000

Mazda3 £3,000

Mazda5 £4,000

Mazda6 £3,000

MX-5 £3,000

RX-8 £6,000

BT-50 £6,000 Maximum

The only car still to attract a £2,000 allowance is the Mazda2 which has attracted customers who generally have the cash amount to purchase and do not require finance.

Increasing the finance rate on Mazda2 to 5.9% has allowed the dealers more flexibility in what they offer the customer, they can either offer a slightly better deal to those customers that don't actually want finance or reduce the finance rate for those that do. In summary therefore these changes provide substantially lower priced Mazda cars on the Scrappage Programme and increased flexibility for dealers to provide the right offer for the customer.
