Mazda adds kit and cuts prices
30 August 2006

Mazda has decided that it is autumn already - and here come the special editions to prove it. They cost less and have more equipment than their standard counterparts.

The three offerings are the 3 and 6 Katano, and the 5 Furano. The best value is the 3, with the 1.6-litre petrol, which costs £12,995 on the road and comes with metallic paint, satnav and a chrome exhaust.

Next in price is the 6 Furano, a 2.0-litre model priced at £14,995. For that you also get metallic paint, satnav and chrome exhausts - with a boot spoiler tacked on for good measure. Mazda puts the value of the extras and cheaper list price at £2,500.

Most expensive is the 5 Katano - which you can have as a £16,996 petrol or £18,995 diesel. That money brings ‘sports’ styling, clear rear lights and unique colours (silver metallic and blue mica, if you were wondering).

The satnav systems come with 12 months’ subscription to SmartNav and all the cars are available now.
