The three-day event takes place on 8-10 November at London’s Earls Court.

"The London Golf Show presents Mazda with an ideal opportunity to promote its new generation of vehicles, with their unique fuel-saving SKYACTIV technology, to an audience which includes company car drivers for which the new Mazda6 and Mazda CX-5 have immense appeal,” comments Steve Tomlinson, Head of Fleet, Mazda UK.

“Genuinely innovative, SKYACTIV technology has enabled us to create best-in-class, multi award-winning vehicles like the new Mazda6 and the Mazda CX-5, which have been voted ‘2013 Best Family Car’ and ‘Best Crossover’ by Auto Express and given the ‘2012 Green SUV Award’ as well as being named ‘Britain’s Best Buy SUV under 25,000’ by WhatCar?– among a host of awards,” adds Tomlinson.

To support its new partnership with The London Golf Show, Mazda is running a competition for people to win a pair of tickets to the show and a Taylormade SLDR Driver. Closing date for entries is 3 November and the competition can be entered at

The show will display two new Mazda6 saloons, a new Mazda6 tourer and a Mazda CX-5 compact SUV with AWD (all-wheel drive) – each model finished in the generously equipped, range-topping Sport Nav specification.

The show is designed to provide golfers of all ages with informed expert advice, free PGA tuition, a massive indoor driving range, custom fitting, club testing, simultators and all the latest golf gadgets. The show opens at 10.00 hrs and closes at 19.00 (Friday 8 November), 17.00 (Saturday 9 November ) and 16.00 (Sunday 10 November).

Every new Mazda6 customer benefits every day from the company’s ‘defy convention’ approach to engineering – an automotive philosophy that guarantees outstanding performance, as well as great fuel economy (up to 72.4mpg) together with low CO2 emissions (from 104g/km), without having to downsize engine capacity.

The Mazda CX-5 model range features a 20-strong line-up with prices starting from 21,595 and rising to 29,395 (OTR). Customers are offered a choice of three engines (165ps petrol and 150ps or 175ps diesel), manual and automatic transmissions, 2-wheel drive or All-wheel drive (AWD) and three equipment levels – SE-L, SE-L Lux and Sport, with or without Sat Nav.

Welcoming Mazda as ‘Official Vehicle Partner’ Dominic McMullan, Golf Show Group Sales & Marketing Manager commented: “We’re delighted to be working with such a forward thinking and innovative brand as Mazda. Our agreement with Mazda demonstrates that The London Golf Show is an environment where Mazda is confident of reaching their target audience. If one of our visitors hits ‘a hole-in-one’ they could walk away with the keys to a Mazda6 worth more than 25,000 – which is sure to generate a serious amount of interest in the brand.”
