Celebrating 20 years of production since the launch of the first generation Mazda2 in April 2003, the latest version of the company’s popular B-segment hatchback, the 2023 Mazda2, features updated exterior and interior design, two new exterior body colours, a new grade structure, and two new special edition models.
With its fresh design, the Mazda2 is an important building block in the company’s Multi-Solution Approach, bringing fuel efficiency and driving enjoyment to the compact car market.
On board, the 2023 Mazda2 offers new instrument panel, air vent, and door panel trim finishes; updated upholstery; and a wide range of comfort- and convenience-enhancing standard equipment even on entry grade models. Mazda Connect system now supports Android Auto™ and wireless Apple CarPlay® connectivity from Centre-Line.
Mazda’s research into Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH) has resulted in a unique approach to the control of sound entering the cabin. This provides a comfortable quietness for all occupants. Heated steering wheel and auto-dimming rear view mirror are available.
The Mazda2 has been praised for ages, and with each generation, for its driveability and the true Jinba Ittai driving experience. The latest developments in Mazda Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture have even enhanced the joy of driving.
Featuring MacPherson struts in the front and torsion beam rear suspension, it offers smooth vehicle movement and a comfortable ride. Both the saturation characteristics of the front and rear dampers and the valve design of both the front and rear dampers are optimised, and the rear dampers benefit from a large radius.
From 75 to 90 hp and a choice of automatic and manual transmission, the 2023 Mazda2 has the right combination for everyone. The front seats have been improved to offer even better occupant-posture to reduce head sway and to minimise fatigue as driving becomes easier. G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) makes the vehicle more stable at speed. Precise control and fast vehicle response to drive inputs have already become a tradition with the Mazda2.
The 2023 Mazda2 can be ordered from 1st April in all authorized dealerships.
