Revamped Mazda2 landing this month


Mazda will launch an updated version of its small car in June

The 2010 Mazda2 features a small number of mid-cycle enhancements to further strengthen its appeal, says Andrew Clearwater, Managing Director, Mazda New Zealand.

Dubbed Mazda’s 'Super Little Model’, the Mazda2’s most striking change will be the new front grille, which follows the design cues of Mazda’s other second-generation vehicles. Sport models (pictured) have a fin-type grille and a jet-black finish, while Classic models adopt a body-coloured bar in the upper grille. Both variants also feature a newly-designed bumper with updated side intakes, and a wider lower-grille.

Inside, silver finishing has been applied to key areas such as the parking brake button, inner door handles and air conditioning dials. Sport variants also now feature a premium solid black seat trim complemented by red pin-striping and piped-stitching.

Safety has been improved on the Classic model with Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) becoming standard across both models.

The new Mazda2 will be available in nine exterior colours: Black Mica, Highlight Silver Metallic, Icy Blue Metallic, Spirited Green Metallic, Metropolitan Grey Mica, Aurora Blue Metallic, Cool White and firm order only Sparkling Gold Mica and Passion Orange Mica.
