Eagerly anticipating spring, Mazda is enhancing its 2014 model range with the introduction of six new ‘Sport Venture’ models priced from £13,395 on-the-road (OTR) and fitted with a new 6.1-inch Mazda Navigation System with integrated Bluetooth® for those who want to get away from the wet weather and go on an adventure.

On sale now, the line-up of six new Sport Venture models comprises three Mazda MX-5 sports cars, two family-friendly Mazda5 models and a Mazda2 five-door hatchback – each featuring bright alloy wheels, bright silver door mirrors and two new eye-catching colours, Titanium Flash and Deep Crystal Blue Mica (free-of-charge on Mazda MX-5 Sport Venture models), and unique exterior badging.

“Our previous range of ‘Venture’ models proved very popular during 2013 so now we are responding to customer feedback by introducing six Sport Venture models for 2014 with enhanced visual appeal and upgraded specifications, including a higher-performing navigation system with a larger, 6.1-inch display screen,” comments Peter Allibon, Sales Director Mazda UK.

The Mazda MX-5 Sport Venture will be available as a ‘Special Edition’ in three versions, the 1.8-litre 126ps Soft-top or Roadster Coupe with 1.8-litre 126ps or 2.0-litre 160ps engines. Highlighting their exclusivity, the trio will be offered with two new exterior colours and will feature stone leather sports heated seats. Prices start at £18,995, with free of charge Mica paint.

The two upgraded Mazda5 Sport Venture models (with 150ps petrol or 115ps diesel power), boast new equipment such as a Brilliant Black front grille, heated power-folding bright silver door mirrors and black leather seat trim with contrasting grey stitching. Prices are £20,295 (petrol) and £21,695 (diesel) with a range of Metallic / Mica / Pearlescent paint colours as a £500 option.

The 1.3-litre 85ps Mazda2 Sport Venture model is an addition to the range (based on the Tamura) and is equipped with 13 extra equipment items, adding external features such as 16-inch Bright alloy wheels, front fog lights, dusk-sensing lights, rain-sensing front wipers and rear parking sensors. Inside, there’s sporty black cloth trim with contrasting grey stitching, a leather steering wheel with gloss dark grey inserts, gloss dark grey trim to the audio panel, door trims and outer air vents, electric rear windows and climate control air-conditioning. This model is priced at £13,395 and customers can choose from a selection of nine exterior colours.

“The six new Sport Venture models allow us to offer even greater value to Mazda customers for 2014. With their visual and specification enhancements, premium cabin ambience, innovative navigation technology and a typical Mazda fun-to-drive rewarding driving experience, these latest Mazdas will prove immensely popular,” adds Allibon.

Until 31 March 2014, all six Sport Venture models are available with zero deposit, 0% APR* representative finance when purchased on a Mazda PCP (over 42 months), and a deposit contribution of £500 to £1,500 – depending on model.
