An updated version of the Mazda 2 will hit Australian showrooms in May in both hatch and sedan body styles boasting a new look and equipment upgrades.

Mazda 2’s combination of styling, driving dynamics and spirited yet economical performance has seen it more than treble the sales volumes achieved by its predecessor. Over 35,000 Mazda 2’s have been sold in Australia since its launch in 2007 making it one of the best selling light cars in the country.

This is the first time that the Mazda 2 has been offered in two distinct body styles and it is expected that customers will be attracted to the new Mazda 2 sedan in part because of its styling and impressive 450 litres of boot capacity.

Mazda Australia marketing manager, Alastair Doak said “Having listened to customer feedback and studied the light segment very closely, we believe that the new Mazda 2 sedan offers the potential to engage with a whole new set of customers.”

The Mazda 2 sedan will offer a host of features including 15 inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning and power windows and mirrors. Safety is well catered for with front, side and curtain SRS airbags in addition to other safety features such as Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD).

The Mazda 2 range will continue to be powered by a 76 kW 1.5 litre petrol engine and will be available with both manual or automatic transmissions. Fuel efficiency remains impressive with the manual transmission achieving 6.4 litres per 100 km.

The ability to offer Australian customers both body styles has been made possible by production moving to the Auto Alliance Thailand (AAT) passenger car plant.
