In addition to the standard equipment of the SE-L Nav, the Sport Black comes with 16-inch Gunmetal alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, auto lights, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors. Limited to 400 cars.

March 2018

Mazda 2 updated for 2018

Priced from £13,295 to £17,095, the 2018 Mazda2 range features five revised trim levels: SE+, SE-L+, SE-L Nav+, Sport Nav+ and GT Sport Nav+. Exclusively powered by Mazda’s 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine, which is offered in 75, 90 and 115ps outputs, the updated Mazda2 range benefits from improved equipment to deliver extra value for money regardless of which model you choose.

The 2018 Mazda 2 also sees the introduction of a refreshed five grade line-up, additional equipment across the range and the launch of the limited edition Mazda2 Sport Black.

Limited to just 500 cars, the Sport Black is powered by the 90PS version of Mazda’s 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine and is marked out by its unique exterior detailing and free-of-charge choice of Deep Crimson Mica, Dynamic Blue Mica or Machine Grey Metallic paint.

Delivering a stand-out and sporty appearance that compliments the taut proportions of the Mazda2, the Sport Black features Brilliant Black detailing on the mirror caps, rear roof spoiler, skirt trims, grille and shark fin antenna, while 16-inch black alloy wheels and privacy glass add the finishing touch.

Other highlights of the updated 2018 Mazda2 range include the introduction of four new paint colours: Ceramic Metallic and Sonic Silver Metallic, plus Machine Grey Metallic and Soul Red Crystal, which both use Mazda’s unique three-layer TAKUMINURI painting technology. Compared to previous Mazda2’s Soul Red Metallic paint, Soul Red Crystal increases brightness by approximately 20 per cent and depth by 50 per cent.

Fitted as standard across the 2018 Mazda2 range, G-Vectoring Control (GVC) varies engine torque to optimise loading on the wheels when cornering to indiscernibly increase handling precision and improve comfort. As before, the Mazda2 features excellent active safety equipment with all 90ps and 115ps powered cars featuring Smart City Brake Support and Lane Departure Warning System.

October 2019

Mazda2 updated with added tech and improved refinement

Mazda has announced UK prices and specifications of the updated Mazda2 ahead of it arriving in dealerships at the end of November.

The simplified model range will be exclusively powered by Mazda's 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine combined with a mild-hybrid system.

Visually, the upgraded Mazda2 is marked out by a new grille featureing a mesh pattern similar to that used on the latest Mazda3, while the wider signature wing and revised headlights heighten the Mazda2’s sporty appearance. At the rear, there's a redesigned bumper.

Inside, revisions to dashboard trims, air vent louvres, door inserts and the instrument hood bring the Mazda2 up to date. The new front seats are more supportive, while new damping materials have been added in the cabin and a reduced gap around the base of the B-Pillar further upgrades sound insulation, as do revised sealing rubbers between the roof panel and the boot.

Fitted to all manual transmission cars, the 2020 Mazda2 benefits from mild-hybridisation with the debut of Mazda M Hybrid. Utilising a belt-integrated start generator (B-ISG) and brake regeneration it mobilises the B-ISG’s power generation to make the most of the energy stored in the capacitor to reduce load on the engine and enable quick restart to help lower emissions and improve fuel economy with extended auto engine stop time. As a result manual versions of the 2020 Mazda2 emit 94-95g/km depending on trim level.

Priced at £15,795, the entry-level 75PS SE-L model features rear parking sensors, 15-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, climate control and cruise control. SE-L Nav, Sport Nav and GT Sport Nav models are powered by the 90PS version of 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G engine and feature Mazda Connect navigation with a seven-inch colour touch-screen, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In addition, the safety equipment tally is enhanced with Front Smart City Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning and Lane-keep Assist.

From Sport Nav onwards the 2020 Mazda2 is marked out by 16-inch alloy wheels, gloss black grille treatment, rear privacy glass, shark-fin antenna and a chrome exhaust trim, plus it benefits from the smart keyless entry. At the top of the range, the flagship GT Sport Nav trim features high-end features normally the preserve of more expensive sectors, including a reversing camera, leather seats and a colour head-up display, plus heated front seats and steering wheel.

The 2020 Mazda2 will arrive in UK dealerships in November.
