A HIGHER powered version of the Mazda2 supermini will be joining a revised line up in October as the Japanese car maker goes about making improvements to its smallest model.
A 115ps model using Mazda's Skyactiv-G engine is being fitted to the car alongside upgraded versions of the 75 and 90ps engines.
Prices start from £16,475 for the 75ps variant in SE-L trim and will top out from £20,845 for the new 115ps model in range topping GT Sport Tech specification.
With the exception of the entry-level 75ps SE-L, all manual versions feature Mazda's M Hybrid mild-hybrid system and will now carry the e-Skyactiv G badge.
Across all models the 1.5-litre petrol engine has been refined for more efficiency with compression ratios increased from 13.1 to 15.1 and the exhaust system upgraded.
CO2 emissions have dropped by 11 to 14g/km depending on output and transmission. As an example the 90ps Sport manual has dropped from 120g/km to 107g/km.
All models in the range feature navigation, cruise control, integrated Bluetooth and air conditioning, while the latest Mazda2 also sees the introduction of wireless Apple CarPlay from Sport trim onwards.
From GT Sport trim onwards, the 2022 Mazda2 gets a colour head-up display, reversing camera, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
The new range-topping 115ps GT Sport Tech comes with adaptive LED headlights, blind spot monitoring, rear smart city brake support and a 360 degree camera.
