Economy and Emissions
Across all models the 2022 Mazda2’s 1.5-litre petrol engine has been refined to offer considerable efficiency improvements. The compression ratio has increased from 13.1 to 15.1 with the exhaust upgraded from a 4-1 to a 4-2-1 manifold. As a result Co2 emissions have dropped by 11 to 14g/km depending on output and transmission. As an example the popular 90ps Sport manual has dropped from 120g/km to 107g/km, while across the range the corresponding improvements in economy further enhance the Mazda2’s excellent cost of ownership credentials.
Despite its lightweight and stiff chassis, exceptionally high refinement levels and interior quietness have been achieved in the Mazda2. Thanks to the damping materials throughout the cabin, reduction in the gap around the base of the B-Pillar, upgrades to the sound insulation and revised rubber sealings, occupants will be able benefit from reduced cabin noise and external vibrations compared to the last generation.
