An accomplish Japanese brand with an eclectic offering that encompasses everything from superminis to sports cars, Mazda has always had something of an alternative feel, even though it does a good job of competing with more obviously mainstream brands. This slightly leftfield reputation perhaps stems from the huge success of its best-known model – the timeless MX-5, a nippy, relatively affordable little sports car that carved out its own niche several decades ago and continues to charm four generations later.
Alongside the MX-5, Mazda offers wide-ranging, well-reviewed collection that spans superminis (Mazda2), family cars (Mazda3), large family cars (Mazda6) and SUVs (CX-5 and CX-30).
Why do I need Mazda GAP insurance?
If you’re the proud owner of a Mazda, you’ll undoubtedly want to ensure that its properly protected. But what does it really mean to protect your beloved Beamer?
Ultimately, you need to know that you can replace your car, even in the worst-case scenario, right?
Sadly, this expectation is all too often scuppered by depreciation. On average a car loses around 60 per cent of its value over three years, meaning that, in the event of a write-off or theft, your insurer will only pay out a fraction of the price you paid for your shiny new Mazda.
So, if you paid £25,000 for a new Mazda MX-5, you might find you’re looking at payout of just £10,000 if your car is written-off or stolen three years later. Which means you’ll have to shell out significant sum to replace your Mazda with the same model. All too often the massive shortfall that separates the sum you need to replace your car and the insurance payout you’re offered makes it impossible to afford a new like-for-like replacement.
MotorEasy GAP Insurance offers a great way to cover this potentially massive disparity, enabling you to claim back the original cost of your vehicle rather than its heavily depreciated market value.
What do I get with MotorEasy?
When you consider that a new Mazda’s value typically depreciates the moment you drive it off the dealership forecourt the worth of Mazda GAP insurance becomes clear.
Our Mazda GAP Insurance effectively tops up your motor insurance in the event of a write-off, giving you the complete peace of mind that your regular policy probably doesn’t offer. If you love your Mazda it’s a brilliant way to ensure you’ll have the financial means to replace it or settle any remaining finance.
Nobody wants to contemplate the worst-case scenario but it’s worth considering that almost half a million cars are written off in the UK every year. So taking extra measures to limit that risk makes financial sense, especially if you’re paying for your car with a leasing arrangement or PCP financing, which could leave you exposed to considerable debt in the event of a write-off.
Available for all cars up to 8 years old (or with up to 80,000 miles on the clock), MotorEasy GAP Insurance represents a smart, easy and affordable way to remove these risks and enjoy your Mazda.
GAP insurance comes into its own in the event of a write-off when, all too often, motorists find that their payout is significantly short of the sum needed to buy a like-for-like replacement. It makes sense to top-up your cover and ensure you’re fully protected. But how likely is a write-off? Is GAP insurance really necessary?
In fact, write-offs are more common than many imagine - over half a million cars are written off every year. Typically, write-offs are the result of accidental damage but MotorEasy GAP insurance also covers you against car theft, which accounts for a large number of write-offs every year. In fact, statistics show that car theft is on the rise.
112,174 motor vehicles were stolen in the UK in 2017/18, that’s the equivalent of 307 every day. Sadly, that figure also represents a significant increase on previous years and the continuation of a 50% jump in car theft over the last five years. Statistics show that car theft is on the up, so it makes sense to ensure you’re properly protected.
