Mazda is introducing four special versions of its popular Mazda3 and Mazda5, the ‘Venture Edition’. These new models are on sale now priced from £17,495.
The new Venture Edition quartet feature generous levels of specification including front fog lights, gun metal alloy wheels, sports front grille, side skirts and rear spoiler and privacy glass. Inside, there is Sanyo TomTom navigation with 5.8-inch touch-screen display and integrated Bluetooth, plus climate control air-conditioning and cruise control.
Based on the Mazda3 TS2, the Venture Edition also gains heated front seats and sports interior for a modest total premium of £500 above the donor-car. The Mazda5 Venture Edition is based on the Mazda5 TS2 and benefits from sports styling, a piano-black centre console and iPod connectivity.
Premium above the donor-car is £630.
Customers buying a Venture Edition model have a choice of powerful engines. The Mazda3 is available with a 1.6-litre MZR (105ps) petrol engine at £17,495 or a 1.6-litre (115ps) diesel priced at £18,995. The Mazda5 comes with a 2.0-litre (150ps) MZR petrol engine for £19,995 or a 1.6-litre (115ps) diesel costing £21,290.
