The all-new Mazda6 estate should be a consideration for many company car drivers and retail buyers alike thanks to its low-emitting diesel engine and solid build quality. The 2.

Buying new

Most Mazda6 Estates will go to the fleet market, and because the Japanese firm has modest sales targets securing a decent discount will be a tough ask. Don’t go for the autos because they blunt the performance, don’t improve resale values and compromise fuel economy. You’ll pay only around £600 more for the Nav models, so a 148bhp SE Nav diesel with a six-speed represents a fairly wise buy.

Buying used

The petrols will be dirt cheap because nobody really wants them, so haggle hard for a petrol model with a low mileage.

The Sport models with leather and sat nav will be the most sought-after, particularly those with the two-tone interior. The diesels will be pretty robust, so anything with a little over 100,000 miles on the clock should still be dependable with plenty of trouble-free miles still ahead of them.

Again, you’ll have to be flexible on the price if you are the proud owner of a petrol model in a low spec such as SE. The Sport models should retain the value a little better.

Valet the interior and make sure all your paperwork is up to date. This is a competitive market and you have to bear in mind that for every decent Mazda6 Estate on the used market there’ll be at least half a dozen Ford Mondeos and Vauxhall Insignias vying for potential buyers’ attentions. The ‘novelty’ factor may well play into your hands, however.

A stylish, sporty looking Mazda6 Estate is a headturner for those sick of the same old loadluggers.
