Mazda2 named Car of the Year by Car Dealer magazine

The all-new Mazda2 has officially been named Car of the Year at this year’s annual Car Dealer Power Awards.

Each award ceremony from the motor trade magazine is decided on votes from car dealers across the country, who choose the best manufacturers and models that they deal with.

Of the Mazda2 supermini, Car Dealer editor Colin Channon said: “We’ve had dozens of dealers telling us what a star it is.

‘Spacious interior and impressive performance’

“With lots of standard kit, a spacious interior and impressive performance levels, plus sharp looks inside and out, it’s a wise supermini buy that’s been very well received by dealers and their customers.”

Priced from just £11,995, the newest version of the Mazda2 features all the same KODO design language as the rest of Mazda’s award-winning lineup, with a dynamic design and new headlamp styling.

With a long wheelbase and short overhangs, the Mazda2 also makes the best use of space for increased practicality, while it also comes packed with an extensive range of equipment.

According to Mazda, the new supermini sets new standards for infotainment and in-car technology, with Mazda’s MZD Connect infotainment system and a seven-inch touchscreen as standard.

Range topping Sport Nav models also benefit from even more kit like automatic high beam assist and blind spot monitoring, along with a heads up display that beams information straight onto the windscreen.

Generous amount of high-tech kit

Jeremy Thomson, Mazda UK’s managing director, said: “I’m delighted that Car Dealer Magazine and the UK’s dealers have recognised the all-new Mazda2 with their Car of the Year title.

“The all-new Mazda2 is another example of how our SKYACTIV technology and KODO design merge to create stylish, efficient and great to drive cars.”

“Our dealer network has done a great job with the Mazda2”, he added, “and we’re looking forward to a busy year with more all-new product launches to come and an extensive upgrade of all our dealerships with exciting new interiors and more eye-catching branding.”

Priced between £11,995 for the entry-level SE trim and £17,395 for the range-topping Sport Nav model, the new Mazda2 is available to order now. For more, why not get in touch with your local Perrys dealership today!
