The wait is over, All-New Mazda2 arrives – Press Release
The wait for the arrival of All-New Mazda2 is over with Mazda’s latest light car launched today ahead of its 17 November on-sale date.
Re-imagined from the ground up, and integrating the elegant lines of Mazda’s award-winning ‘KODO – Soul of Motion’ design language and innovative SKYACTIV Technology, All New Mazda2 has more power yet is more fuel efficient, offers unequalled styling, and is better connected than any of its predecessors.
Available as a hatch, All-New Mazda2 comes with two transmission types, the 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic and 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual, and offers two 1.5 litre SKYACTIV-G petrol engine alternatives.
