Mazda car loan customers 'not alone'

Despite the credit crunch, people planning to take out a car loan to buy a new Mazda are unlikely to be alone, figures from the manufacturer have suggested.

Despite the credit crunch, people planning to take out a car loan to buy a new Mazda are unlikely to be alone, figures from the manufacturer have suggested.

During September, the company increased its share of the retail market to 3.1 per cent, up from 2.3 per cent in the same month in 2007.

In comparison, the UK industry as a whole saw new car sales drop 21.2 per cent.

Commenting on Mazda's performance, managing director Jeremy Thomson said: "Our passenger car retail sales for the year are 24,226 which is 3,138 up on last year and given current conditions a great performance."

He put the company's success in part down to the popularity of the Mazda2, which he described as "the right car at the right time".

In other news that may interest car loan customers, the manufacturer is due to unveil the all-new Mazda3 - which has been redesigned for the first time in five years - at the Los Angeles Auto Show next month.
