Mazda is the latest carmaker to take the knife to pricing for some of its Australian range, reacting to the incoming free trade agreement (FTA) with Japan.

As expected after comments from Mazda Australia boss Martin Benders in 2014, the carmaker reduced prices on New Year’s Day ahead of the FTA, which kicks in on January 15.

The midsized Mazda6 and top-selling Mazda3 are now cheaper, along with Mazda’s CX-5 and CX-9 SUVs.

Petrol models have been reduced by between $403 and $963, while diesel-powered models are between $268 and $347 cheaper.

Mazda says further price reductions for diesel models will be phased in over the next 2-3 years.

“We want our customers to benefit from the FTA duty reductions from the start of 2015,” Mazda Australia Managing Director, Martin Benders, said.

“There is no need to wait for these duty reductions mid-month, as adjustments have been made effective January 1. We are excited to deliver extra value to our customers by kick-starting the New Year with sharper pricing across most of the Mazda range.”

Customers can expect further discounts on some Mazda models during January, as the carmaker looks to clear its remaining 2014-plated stock.

As the light Mazda2 and BT-50 pickup are both sourced from Thailand (with whom Australia already holds a FTA), they are unaffected by this current round of price adjustments.
