The brand new and improved Mazda 2 is set to hit the proverbial shelves by early 2015, Mazda have revealed. The model, which is set to compete with the Volkswagen Polo and Ford Fiesta, is designed to provide an unbeatable blend of safety, environmental-friendliness and performance.
Due to go on sale in Japan as soon as this autumn, the car isn’t set to arrive on British shores until 2015, where it is expected to compete with other popular small cars, the Polo and Fiesta, for supremacy.
The vehicle will include Skyactiv efficiency technology which is designed to make the vehicle as fuel efficient and environmentally friendly as can be and will be available as a 1.5-litre petrol or a 1.5-litre diesel engine. Also included is Mazda’s own MZD Connect system – a system which will allow drivers to manage in-car features with either the rotary controller or touch-screen.
Speaking to the Telegraph, Jeff Guyton, European CEO of Mazda, explained: “It won’t have the lowest headline CO2 figure in the supermini sector, but it will have the best balance of performance and CO2.”
The Mazda 2 is somewhat similar in external design to the Mazda 3 but the interior is undeniably unique, featuring a suave, modern and simple design that is sure to impress drivers and passengers alike.
The Price of the Mazda 2 is yet to be announced but Mr Guyton said: “The Mazda 2 has never played in the budget end of the market, and it’s not going to start now.”
