All Mazda Cars Now In Motability

Scheme available for 81 out of 97 Mazda models

The entire Mazda range is now available through Motability – a scheme that allows disabled people to use their government-funded mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair. 

The 2015 programme, which will run through to March 31, includes 81 out of 97 derivatives available from the Mazda2, Mazda3, the spacious seven-seat Mazda5 people carrier, the Mazda6, Mazda CX-5 compact crossover and the iconic Mazda MX-5 two-seater.

In the final quarter of 2014, Mazda introduced the Mazda3 and Mazda CX-5 to the Motability programme.

This allowed the company to see the value in offering a comprehensive Motability programme and have now rolled it forward into the New Year, giving disability allowance recipients the broadest range of choice in Mazda’s history. 

Since the CX-5 joined the programme, it has become the brand’s most popular Motability programme car in 2014/15. It is available with a choice of the full range of SKYACTIV petrol and diesel engines, as well as two automatic options, with on-the-road prices starting from £21,895.

The entire popular Mazda2 range is available on the road from £11,195, with a choice of 1.3-litre 75ps and 84ps engines and as a 1.5-litre 102ps automatic.  All models come with nil advance payment terms. Automatic variants are favoured by many Motability customers and are available across the Mazda range, with the exception of the Mazda5. 

The family-sized Mazda6, available in both Saloon and Tourer bodystyles, costs from £19,595 on-the-road and is also available with a choice of SKYACTIV petrol and diesel engines with only the 2.2-litre 175ps variant excluded from the scheme.

The world’s best selling Mazda MX-5 is also in the Mazda Motability programme line-up. The on-the-road price for this model starts at £18,495.

 

It is my understanding that, if you qualify for disablement benefits before the age of 65, you can use the Motability Scheme for life. If you are disabled after the age of 65 you cannot claim.

Is there an upper age limit (perhaps for insurance reasons(?) for Motability eligibility?
