THERE'S a new look inside and out for the ever-popular Mazda2 supermini with fresh exterior styling and new cabin trim treatment.
There are four newly named trim grades - Centre-Line, Homura, Exclusive-Line and Homura Aka - for the new range which will go on sale from late spring, priced from Â£17,750.
For 2023 the hatchback features a new grille, a sleeker bumper design, decorative dash panels and will be available in two new exterior colours: Aero Grey and Air Stream Blue.
Nothing changes under the skin and the new range will only be available with the 1.5-litre petrol engine which was updated last year and continues with three power outputs of 75, 90 and 115PS. For those wanting a greener option, the new petrol-engined range will be sold alongside the Mazda2 Hybrid which is built by Toyota and is based on the Toyota Yaris self-charging hybrid.
The range starts with the 75ps Centre-Line trim which is also offered with the 90ps output. The Homura variant comes with the 90ps engine, while the Exclusive-Line is also offered with the 90ps output but comes with a choice of automatic and manual transmission.
The range-topping Homura Aka is offered with a choice of 90 or 115ps outputs, with the 90ps offered with both automatic and manual gearbox. With the exception of the 75ps Centre-Line, all manual versions of the Mazda2 feature Mazda's M Hybrid mild-hybrid system and now wear the e-Skyactiv G badge.
Specifications are generous across the new range with all models featuring navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, cruise control, integrated Bluetooth and climate control.
