Mazda has had another month of strong sales results and is on the way to making the 74,000 sales target that was set for the 2009 year.
Mazda sold a total of 5,637 new vehicles in the month of October which is up two per cent from this time last year.
Mazda is Australia’s number one selling importer having sold 63,332 passenger and light commercial vehicles this year so far.
The new Mazda 3 has been a great seller for the brand with sales of the hatch and sedan up 5.1 per cent from last year to 2,211 sales for the month of October.
The new facelifted CX-7 has also had a great month with sales doubling in October; the choice of two new engines also gives the customer more choice. 523 CX-7s found new homes in October up a massive 110 per cent on the same time last year.
Doug Dickson is the managing director of Mazda Australia and he is very happy with the October results.
“It’s pleasing to see that Australian consumers look to New Generation Mazda3 as one of the best looking, best driving, and best value for money small cars on the market. These driving attributes combined with a new national driveaway price of $23,990* will ensure Mazda3 remains a major player in the Small, sub $40,000 segment.
“It’s equally pleasing to see Mazda CX-7 do so well not even a month on from the launch of the upgraded range.”
*National driveaway price of $23,990 is for Mazda3 Neo (6MT)
