Mazda racked up even more honors at the “Fleet World 2013 Honours” event in London. The Mazda6 was awarded “Best Upper Medium” sedan and the Mazda CX-5 was named “Best Small SUV.”
The annual Fleet World Honours is one of the most prestigious auto awards events in the UK. Awards are given to those that have achieved excellence in their sector.
Each car is judged by residual value, maintenance and reliability.
About the Mazda6 Fleet World said: “The new Mazda6 oozes quality. It’s a big car with lots of space, rides beautifully and handles well, while the cabin is stylishly simple and built to a very high standard. Add in that clever SKYACTIV technology which ensures emissions are incredibly low and you have an extremely fine business car.”
And the Mazda CX-5: “The CX-5 shows that an SUV can be efficient, with low CO2, and still have the benefit of four-wheel drive. It’s also nicely built with lots of cabin space, and it drives well too. These credentials are so important for a car to feature high up the user-chooser lists and in the case of the CX-5 will ensure that its driver appeal is matched by a sound whole-life cost proposition.”
