Lifestyle Mazda offers customers sporty Mazda ‘Takuya’ special editions for summer

Lifestyle Mazda in Horsham, Gatwick and Eastbourne are now offering its customers a new sporty Takuya special edition range for the summer, featuring evocative styling and high-levels of standard equipment representing excellent value for money to customers.  The latest special edition range follows on from the successes of the Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda6 Tamura special editions earlier this year.

The name ‘Takuya’ – pronounced ‘tah-koy-yah’ – is taken from the Japanese for forerunner or pioneer.  Available at the Bishopric, Manor Royal and Lottbridge Drove showrooms from 1 July 2010 the new variants are available in the Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda6 model line-ups and offer added value for our customers.

The generously equipped new Takuya models incorporate features normally only available with top‑of-the-range derivatives, including exterior sports styling, larger alloy wheels, a Bluetooth® system and a sports interior.

“The new Mazda Takuya range offers buyers genuine exclusivity, evocative sports styling and represents fantastic value for money,” comments Mark Spowage, brand manager at Lifestyle Mazda.

“Previous Special Edition Mazda models have proved hugely popular, fast selling and boast impressive residual values.  The Takuya range offers yet another reason for value-seeking consumers that want something different to the mainstream to head down to their local Mazda dealership this summer,” continues Spowage.

Mazda2 Takuya – compact and sporty
Priced from £11,915 (OTR), the 1.3-litre Mazda2 five-door Takuya is the entry point into the special edition range. The Takuya boasts 16-inch alloy wheels, a sports styling kit (incorporating spoiler, sports bumpers and side skirts) and front fog lights. The interior benefits from black sports trim, trip computer, leather steering wheel and gear knob, steering wheel remote audio controls and a Parrot Bluetooth® hands-free kit.

The 1.3 Mazda2 (86ps) is a remarkably frugal yet feisty model.  The hatchback produces just 125g/km CO2 and returns 54.3mpg, yet is one of the finest handling and fun to drive superminis on sale in the UK.

Mazda3 Takuya – added appeal for popular hatch

Moving up through the Mazda range, buyers will find the 1.6-litre Mazda3 five-door Takuya.  This model boasts a very impressive specification including a leather steering wheel and shift knob, automatic dual-zone climate control air conditioning, black sports interior trim, sports seats, an integrated Bluetooth® system, LED lights, a six-disc CD changer and rain-sensing wipers.

Priced from just £15,780 the incredibly well appointed Mazda3 Takuya represents excellent value for money.  Boasting a combined fuel economy figure of 44.8mpg and a low-for-class 149g/km CO2 emissions, the 105ps 1.6-litre hatchback will follow the Mazda2 Takuya’s lead and offer unrivalled fun behind the wheel.

Mazda6 Takuya – frugal family fun
Mazda6 buyers will find Takuya special edition models in three different guises: 2.0-litre five-door (£19,845), 2.2D 163ps five-door (£20,945) and 2.2D 163ps Estate (£21,595).  All three variants benefit from the fitment of 18-inch alloy wheels, a sports grille and dusk-sensing headlights on the exterior, while the interior benefits from an alloy pedal set, half-leather heated seats, auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control air conditioning, leather steering wheel and shift knob and a choice of paint colours.

Vehicles fitted with the 2.0-litre petrol powerplant are capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 10.3 seconds en route to a 134mph maximum speed.  Combined fuel economy of 40.9mpg is achievable and CO2 emissions of 159g/km put the petrol Mazda6 in road tax band G.  Meanwhile, the 2.2D 163ps models return an impressive 52.3mpg combined and produce 142g/km CO2 (five-door; estate produces 143g/km CO2).  Both versions hit 62mph in just 9.2 seconds.

To find out more about the Mazda Takuya range please contact your nearest Lifestyle Mazda dealership today.

‘On the road’ prices include 17.5% VAT, number plates, delivery, 12 months road fund licence, first registration fee, 3 year or 60,000 mile warranty and 3 years European Roadside Assistance.  All models are available with free 7-day drive away insurance.

All-New Mazda3 – Great Value for Cost-Conciuous Businesses

The all-new Mazda3, now on sale at Lifestyle Mazda, is proving to be the value-for-money choice for Crawley and Horsham businesses. Predicted class-topping depreciation rates put the Mazda3 in front of mainstream competition into premium badge territory.

Britain’s leading contract hire and leasing companies give the Mazda3 range a residual value (RV) of 35 per cent at three years/60,000 miles for the entry-level 1.6D TS 5dr (£15,760 on-the-road) and at 2.2D 150ps Sport 5dr (£18,440), with the range’s anticipated best-seller, the 1.6D TS2 (£16,960, at 34 per cent.

These impressive depreciation rates put the Mazda3 range ahead of numerous key competitors, including the Ford Focus, Renault Mégane, Toyota Auris and Vauxhall Astra and close to or on a par with the premium‑badged Audi A3, BMW-1 Series and Volkswagen Golf.

“Mazda3 represents a fantastic cost‑effective alternative to the perceived mainstream models in the family car sector,” comments Mark Spowage, dealer principal at Lifestyle Mazda in Crawley and Horsham. “With fresh styling, great vehicle dynamics, low CO2 emissions, excellent fuel economy and now first-class residual values from the UK’s top leasing companies, we expect the all-new Mazda3 to secure its own niche on the fleet map alongside the ever popular Mazda6.”

The RV performance of Mazda3 petrol models is predicted to be equally as impressive. For example, the average three‑year/60,000-mile residual value for the entry-level 1.6 S 5dr (£13,500) is 31.9 per cent, with the 1.6 TS2 5dr (£15,500) at 31.8 per cent, the 2.0 TS2 auto 5dr (£17,460) at 31 per cent and the forthcoming 2.0 i-stop 150ps Sport 5dr (£18,025) at 30.6 per cent.

Jeff Knight, forecast manager at residual value experts CAP Monitor, explains: “The Mazda3, with its improved diesel offering and increased petrol efficiency, brings Mazda firmly onto the fleet radar. The stronger European element to its design cues should increase its appeal to British buyers. The overall improvements to internal refinement will also be warmly welcomed by UK customers.”

With CO2 emission levels below the critical capital allowance benchmark of 160g/km for all models with the exception of the 2.0-litre automatic, the new Mazda3 range also makes tax sense for businesses as well as company car drivers.

Available in four-door and five-door guise, the new 20-strong Mazda3 range will be joined at the end of the month by the fuel-stretching i-stop (Smart Idling Stop System) on the 2.0 Sport, which can deliver fuel consumption savings of up to 16 per cent on the combined cycle.

To find out more about the Mazda range or to arrange a test drive, please call Lifestyle Mazda on Crawley 01293 845000 or Horsham 01403 254331 or visit one of our showrooms at Manor Royal, Crawley or Bishopric, Horsham.

Economy Drive at Lifestyle Mazda

Lifestyle Mazda hosted a preview weekend at its Manor Royal showroom last weekend, inviting Crawley motorists to sample the latest Mazda3, prior to its release this week.  However, this was no ordinary test drive event, as Lifestyle had arranged for a Mazda pro driver to demonstrate just how to make the best of the new model’s eco qualities.

Former Formula Ford champion and Formula 3 test driver, Wayne Clark – who holds the enviable title of once beating Lewis Hamilton – knows a thing or two about the delicate balancing act of preserving fuel and was on hand to demonstrate to Lifestyle’s customers how to get the best from the new Mazda3.

Loaded with technical innovations, including the new fuel-saving i-stop smart idling technology, the new Mazda delivers a 16% rise in fuel economy and the drop in CO2 emissions brings several models across the range into the £35 road tax band and, as sales manager, Mark Spowage, explains, efficiency is becoming all the more important:

“We all grumble when we’re filling up at the pump and the guidance from the specialist Mazda driver today has reminded us what a difference we can make it we slightly alter our driving habits.  Little things like thinking ahead with stopping distances to avoid frequent stopping and starting can make all the difference around town.”

The new Mazda3 is a family car at heart and safety is also a major concern in its design.  Some of the new features, which come as standard, include Dynamic Stability Control, Emergency Stop Signalling, ABS, Mazda’s Traction Control System and active front head restraints.

Coinciding with the launch date of the Mazda3, the government’s new scrappage scheme, which gives a guaranteed £2,000 trade-in value for cars over 10 years old, makes the safety and efficiency of modern cars more attainable than ever.

To find out more about the new Mazda range, why not drop into Lifestyle and book a test drive.
