Getting around never felt so good. Mazda2 is light-on-its feet around town, smooth-riding sure of itself, and sporty good fun everywhere you go.
At every level, breakthrough SKYACTIV TECHNOLOGY has reduced weight and ramped up efficiency. 1.5 litre petrol engines give you lots of go, yet use very little fuel. There are automatic or manual transmissions – both responsive and refined.
New-generation design and materials maximise lightness and rigidity. Key joints are strengthened by advanced techniques requiring no heavy reinforcement. High and ultra-high tensile steel cuts weight and boosts strength. Despite being light, Mazda2 achieves outstanding collision performance.
Every component has been optimised to build the sense of ‘oneness’ between car and driver. The lightweight front strut and rear torsion beam suspension uses firmer bushings and revised geometry for sporty agility with high levels of refinement. Electric power-assisted steering saves fuel, and also delivers quick handling underpinned by reassuring stability.
SKYACTIV-G 1.5L Petrol Engine (Standard Spec)
A fundamental redesign of the internal combustion engine elevates performance, yet cuts fuel consumption. The low friction 4-cylinder engine’s multi-hole direct injection minimises fuel use, while a unique piston design improves fuel combustion and lowers emissions. Allied to a 4-1 exhaust system in Neo, the engine delivers 79kW and 139Nm, using only 5.5 litres per 100km when matched to the 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission.
SKYACTIV-G 1.5L Petrol Engine (High Spec)
The low weight, low friction and high efficiency fundamentals of SKYACTIV-G petrol engine design result in sporty performance with minimal fuel use. The high spec engine in Maxx and Genki models uses i-stop to save extra fuel by switching the engine off when you come to a halt, re-starting instantly as required. Its 4-2-1 exhaust layout helps produce 81kW of power and 141Nm of torque. Just 4.9 litres of fuel is used every 100km when matched to the 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission.
SKYACTIV-MT – Manual Transmission
The 6-speed SKYACTIV-MT manual transmission delivers precise, sports-car style shifting through simplified design and a finely-honed mechanism. More compact and also much lighter than comparable transmissions, it significantly cuts internal friction to improve fuel economy.
SKYACTIV-Drive – Automatic Transmission
Combines the best aspects of conventional automatic, continuously variable and dual clutch transmissions. The 6-speed SKYACTIV-Drive automatic transmission couples directly with the engine over a far wider range than other automatics for increased fuel economy and more direct power delivery. Shifts are quick and smooth.
