Mazda releases pricing for the new Mazda2

Mazda has officially revealed full specifications and pricing for the new Mazda2 supermini ahead of its release in the UK.

Priced between £11,995 and £17,395, Mazda’s newest version of the Mazda2 is due to go on sale in the UK early next year.

Designed according to the marque’s KODO design language, the Mazda features a dynamic design with a long wheelbase and small overhangs to maximise space on the inside.

The new Mazda2 also features the marque’s signature ‘wing’ front grille design, plus an assertive new headlamp styling that instantly sets it apart from its conventionally-designed rivals.

5 trims available, suiting every budget

Five trim levels are available: SE, SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport and Sport Nav; each model features what Mazda claims to be class-leading shoulder and knee room, plus improve comfort and ergonomics.

Mazda says the new supermini will set new standards for infotainment and in-car technology features, with Mazda’s MZD Connect system and a Multimedia Commander control as standard.

Each model will come with a seven-inch touchscreen and the new intuitive Commander control, while SE-L Nav trims also come with an integrated satellite navigation system as standard.

Range-topping Sport Nav models receive all of the above kit, along with exclusive 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and climate control air-conditioning.

A wide array of safety systems are also fitted, including electronic brake assist, dynamic stability control and a traction control system, plus hill start assist and emergency stop signalling.

All trims from SE-L upwards also feature a lane departure warning system and a new smart city brake support feature, which automatically applies the brakes to avoid frontal impacts.

Sport Nav models also benefit from an optional Safety Pack, which adds even more kit including automatic high beam assist and blind spot monitoring, plus a class-first heads up display.
