Winner of the 2013 Vincentric Best Fleet Value in Canada award for the second year in a row, the Mazda3 Sport GX had the lowest fleet cost to own in 23 of the 24 lifecycle cost scenarios measured. Flexing its fleet strength by outperforming its competitors, with better than average insurance and low depreciation, the Mazda3 Sport offers high value at low cost. Each month Vincentric measures the cost to own and operate over 1,800 vehicle configurations based upon typical use in a commercial fleet. To determine these overall lifecycle costs, fleet purchase incentives are incorporated into the calculation of the Vincentric Fleet Price for each vehicle, and costs for each vehicle are measured in the following 8 areas: Depreciation Insurance, Fees & Taxes Maintenance (scheduled and unscheduled), Finance, Opportunity Cost, Fuel, and Repairs.
