Tech Edition for
MAZDA recently updated its popular Mazda2 supermini range and has just announced a high-tech model, the Tech Edition, which features more useful technology, safety and user-friendly gear.
It goes on sale on July 1 and is limited to just 750 units in the UK.
The Mazda2 Tech Edition is based on the 1.5 90bhp SE-L Nav and comes with additions including 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, privacy glass, climate control, auto lights and rain-sensing wipers.
At £14,995 the on-sale price of the special Tech Edition is just £300 more than the SE-L Nav model.
All models in the updated Mazda2 range include the introduction of Mazda's G-Vectoring Control technology and improvements to the suspension and steering to deliver improved ride comfort and steering response. In addition, interior upgrades include new seat fabrics, a new steering wheel and improved sound insulation.
As far as handling of the Mazda2 goes the front and rear damper settings have been revised to improve ride quality and to improve body control the front anti-roll bar bushing has changed and the structure of the front lower suspension arm has been modified. Additionally, a small recalibration of the electric power steering has resulted in improved steering feel.
Across the trim levels the upgraded Mazda2 now features additional equipment. SE-L and SE-L Nav cars now feature LED front fog lamps, auto power-folding mirrors and passenger seat height adjustment, while Sport Nav models benefit from subtle visual enhancements including new 16-inch alloy wheels and a shark fin antenna.
Jeremy Thomson, managing director Mazda Motors UK, said: "With annual UK sales of over 10,000 cars, the Mazda2 is a really important car in our line-up. It may be the smallest car we produce, but it has at its heart the same values of style, driving involvement and quality that mark out all our products.
"The addition of the Tech Edition gives us a limited edition model that offers a winning combination of excellent equipment and extra value. Designed for a younger audience it is another example of how our Mazda2 special editions offer a distinctive and well-equipped small car experience."
