2020 Mazda2: specifications and prices confirmed

The facelifted Mazda2 features mild-hybrid tech and has a starting price of £15,795

The new Mazda2 has been launched with lightly facelifted styling, new technology and ‘Mazda M Hybrid’ mild-hybrid technology. The range has been simplified to four models with just the familiar 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine available. The new Mazda 2 is priced from £15,795 and arrives in November.

The new Mazda2 is the latest model by the Japanese manufacturer to feature Mazda’s KODO design language. There are new headlights, and a new, wider grille features a mesh pattern, which was first seen on the all-new Mazda3 hatchback. At the back there’s a revised bumper to give the Mazda2 a lower stance.

Interior changes include new air vents, door cards and upgraded material surrounding the instrument cluster. The front seats have a more advanced design and are claimed to be more supportive. New sound-deadening materials around the cabin have also been added.

The new Mazda2 features revised suspension and power steering setups in an attempt to improve the handling and steering feel respectively. Also new is a mild-hybrid system for all models with a manual gearbox. This system works by capturing and storing energy to help the start/stop system operate more efficiently, resulting in lower exhaust CO2 emissions of 94-95g/km.

The updated Mazda2 will come exclusively with a 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine. The entry-level Mazda2 SE-L has a 74bhp version of this engine and starts at £15,795. Its standard features include rear parking sensors, 15-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, climate control and cruise control.

SE-L Nav, Sport Nav and GT Sport Nav models come with the same engine but in the 89bhp output. The SE-L Nav model starts at £16,795 and comes as standard with Mazda Connect, which incorporates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety features such as Front Smart City Brake Support and Lane-keep Assist are also fitted.

Sport Nav models, starting at £17,495, feature 16-inch alloy wheels, a gloss black grille, tinted rear windows, a shark-fin aerial, a chrome exhaust tip and keyless entry. This trim level is the only one available with an automatic gearbox - choosing it increases the price to £19,595.

At the top of the Mazda2 range is the GT Sport Nav. It starts at £18,294 and features a reversing camera, heated steering wheel and leather front seats, and a head-up colour display.
