2020 Mazda2 gets essential upgrades

The Mazda2 gets major updates for the year, with the inclusion of a mild-hybrid engine. There are plenty of fresh interior and exterior elements to show for, as well. 

The recognizable Mazda2 has a new mesh-patterned grille, like the one on the Mazda3, a wider wing and more menacing headlights. From the rear, the bumper has been reworked to give it a lowered stance. Mazda2 is decked in 15-inch wheels across the line-up, except the top-of-the-line variants which are fitted with 16-inch.

To match the exterior, the 2020 Mazda2 receives fresh dashboard trims, air vent louvres, door inserts and  instrument hood. The Mazda2’s cabin are made up of upmarket materials and it’s got the Mazda’s driver-oriented cockpit. The front seats now gives better support to maintain occupants’ an upright posture and offer spinal support.

The cabin’s quieter too, thanks to damping materials, upgraded sound insulation and much improved sealing rubbers on the roof and boot.

Mazda2 features the 1.5 Skyactiv-G engine, paried with M-Hybrid system and an integrated start generator. This mild hybrid thing improves fuel consumption and lower emissions. Mazda2 is possibly the best handling sub-compact in the world. And to keep it that way, the 2020 Mazda2 utilizes a urethane top mount in the rear dampers and a revised power steering to make driving more responsive with a better feel. The included G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) helps in this, too.

The Mazda2 comes with the base model SE-L, SE-L Nav, Sport Nav and GT Sport Nav for the UK market. Apart from the base, all variants have Mazda Connect navigation with a seven-inch colour touch-screen and enhanced safety equipment. Other more exclusive items are reserved for the top two Mazda2 variants such as; gloss black grille treatment, rear privacy glass, shark-fin antenna, a chrome exhaust trim and keyless entry; the GT Sport Mazda2 gets a reversing camera, leather seats, a color head-up display, and heated front seats and steering.
