Mazda CX-5 2.0 Sport Nav
The Mazda CX-5 2.0 Sport Nav becomes the head of the new crossover’s flock by achieving 109 percent of CAP ‘clean’ in its UK auction debut.
The recently launched CX-5 is the first car to benefit from Mazda’s SKYACTIV technology, which has as its three key attributes economy, safety and performance. The 2-wheel drive (2WD) 2.0-litre SE-L SKYACTIV-G 165ps petrol engine range gives drivers a choice of SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav trim levels. Emitting 139g/km of CO2 and returning 47.1mpg on the combined cycle, no competitor models can match such figures given the available power.
The real beauty of these cars is that besides all the economy features, they are still full of driving joy and joie de vivre like all Mazda models. That makes it a no compromise car. And as always there’s Mazda’s awesome value for money.
Mazda press release:
Mazda’s ground-breaking all-new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV featuring breakthrough SKYACTIV technology has made its UK auction debut achieving 109 percent of CAP ‘clean’.
The star performer was the Mazda CX-5 2.0 Sport Nav 5dr, which was among a total of 64 vehicles offered for sale from Mazda Motors UK’s own fleet via a closed CyberAuction sale.
The Mazda franchise network logged into the online auction, which also included a wide range of high-specification models from across the manufacturer’s model range.
Other star performers included a Mazda3 1.6D TS2 Nav achieving 114 percent of CAP ‘clean’ and a Mazda6 2.2 MZ-CD diesel Sport 180ps achieving 108 percent of CAP ‘clean’.
CyberAuction is powered by Manheim’s online system, Simulcast, which allows dealers to bid online from a convenient location and participate in the live interactive closed auction. Mazda Motors UK has been operating a CyberAuction sales programme since 2008.
Mazda Remarketing Manager Tamara Brown said: “Good quality late plate used car stock is in short supply so it is encouraging to see so many dealers engaging with the CyberAuction programme.
“The fact that there was strong bidding for the recently launched CX-5 and that it sold for 109 percent of CAP ‘clean’ is positive proof that the vehicle is highly desirable in both the new and used car market.”
James Leese, Sales Director Manufacturer, Manheim Remarketing said: “We’re very pleased with the results achieved for Mazda at its launch of the CX-5. An auction debut is always an exciting occasion especially for such an important vehicle. The high attendance, conversion rate and values achieved demonstrate that CyberAuction offers a powerful draw for buyers and can play a vital role in the success of any manufacturer’s remarketing programme.”
