Prices of Mazda3 now start from 755,000 Baht

Bangkok, Thailand January 7, 2010: Mazda Thailand has announced new prices for its sporty Mazda3 to start from 755,000 Baht as a result of ASEAN Free Trade Area (AFTA) duty saving structure in 2010

The new price structure covering all models of the Mazda3, has come into effect from January 1st in accordance with the AFTA agreement that enacts 0% custom tax between ASEAN countries.

John Ray, Managing Director at Mazda Thailand said the AFTA agreement has led to savings in the Mazda3s cost structure with these savings to be passed to our customers.

The new prices are starting from 755,000 Baht for the Mazda3 Groove automatic version.

Both models are playing a key role in strengthening Mazda brand and operation in the Thai market.  I believed the new prices of Mazda3 will further benefit customers who can own a stylish compact car even easier."
