The all-new Mazda2 has been launched in Australia ahead of its official showroom appearance on the 17 November.
Sporting Mazda’s impressive suite of Skyactiv technologies and the company’s award-winning ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design language, the small hatch will be offered in three trim levels – Neo, Maxx and Genki.
All models are powered by a 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine in two states of tune. In the standard spec Neo, the engine puts out 79kW of power and 139Nm of torque, while in the higher spec Maxx and Genki, the engine produces 81kW of power and 141Nm of torque, both an improvement on the outgoing model.
In a win for buyers, All-New Mazda2 boasts best-ever fuel consumption numbers. The high spec SKYACTIV-G 1.5 litre petrol engine with SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission sips as little 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 uses just 5.4 litres per 100 kilometres, an improvement of 15 per cent compared to the outgoing engine.
In a first for the segment, All-New Mazda2 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.
The newest generation Mazda2 is available in eight colours including brand new Dynamic Blue Mica and Smoky Rose Mica, the popular Soul Red makes its debut on Mazda2, while Aluminium Metallic, Black Mica, Snowflake White Pearl Mica, Gunmetal Blue Mica and Metropolitan Grey Mica round out the palette.
