Mazda has updated the Mazda2 supermini for 2022, with revised powertrains and new trim levels.
The latest model, which will be available from October, has reduced CO2 emissions by up to 14g/km.
All Mazda2 models use the brand’s 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine, which is offered in 75PS, 90PS and 115PS variants.
Mazda’s M mild-hybrid system is fitted to all manual models, with the exception of the entry level 75PS SE-L.
Prices start at £16,475 and peak at £20,845, for the range-topping 115PS GT Sport Tech.
All models in the range feature satnav, cruise control, Bluetooth and air conditioning, while wireless Apple CarPlay is introduced from Sport trim onwards. GT Sport models are equipped with a colour head-up display, reversing camera, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
The range-topping GT Sport Tech (115PS only) has adaptive LED headlights, blind spot monitoring, rear smart city brake support and a 360-degree camera.
Changes to the Mazda2’s suspension and steering are said to improve driveability. The car is also equipped with Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus), which uses the brakes to apply direct yaw movement control in addition to the previous system’s engine control.
Jeremy Thomson, managing director of Mazda UK, said: “The Mazda2 may be the smallest car we produce, but it has at its heart the same values of style, driver involvement and quality that mark out all our vehicles. The Mazda2 is now more efficient than ever, while thanks to the generous equipment tally across all models, we have a distinctive and premium contender in what is still one of the most competitive segments in the UK car market.”
