The all-new Mazda 2 will be in local Mazda dealerships in coming weeks.

Re-worked from the ground up, and integrating the lines of Mazda’s so called ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design language and innovative technology, all-new Mazda 2 has more power yet is more fuel efficient, offers new styling, and is better connected than any of its predecessors.

Available as a hatch, the all-new model comes with two transmission types, the 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic and 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual, and offers two 1.5 litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine alternatives. The standard spec puts out 79kW of power and 139Nm of torque, while the higher spec version has 81kW of power and 141Nm of torque. Both are an improvement on the previous model.

In a win for buyers, the new generation Mazda 2 boasts the model's best-ever fuel consumption numbers. The high spec SKYACTIV-G 1.5 litre petrol engine with SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission is rated as low as 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres, an improvement of 28 per cent over the old model, while the standard spec SKYACTIV-G 1.5 litre petrol engine with SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission is rated at 5.4 litres per 100 kilometres, an improvement of 15 per cent compared to the previous engine.

In a first for the segment, the all-new Mazda 2 introduces a Head-Up Active Driving Display on the high grade Genki model. In addition, Genki features the next-generation HMI with Commander control allowing safe access to navigation, communications and infotainment including social media via MZD Connect, and i-ACTIVSENSE technology, in the form of Smart City Brake Support, is available as an option across the entire range.

Also new for Mazda’s smallest car are four different interior trim options. The Neo, Maxx and Genki each has its own unique look and feel, with a further colour pack option available on the mid-spec model, Maxx.

The newest generation Mazda 2 is available in eight striking colours including brand new Dynamic Blue Mica and Smoky Rose Mica, Soul Red makes its debut on Mazda 2, while Aluminium Metallic, Black Mica, Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Gunmetal Blue Mica and Metropolitan Grey Mica round out the palette.
