The Mazda2’s chunky reach-and rake- adjustable steering wheel, perfectly positioned pedals, supportive front seats and deep-set instrument panel reflects its athletic dynamism. This driver-centric cabin design is further underscored by the GT Sport Nav+’s head-up colour Active Driving Display, which uses a clear panel mounted on top of the dash above the instrument cluster to project key driving information in to the driver’s line of sight.
Enhanced Passenger Space
Pushing the A-pillar back by 80mm in conjunction with an 80mm boost in wheelbase has created a spacious and accommodating cabin, despite its compact footprint. Combined with slimmer seat backs and a space-efficient dash design this resulted in an additional 12mm of front shoulder room, 20mm of additional space between the driver and front passenger, and 19mm of additional knee room for rear passengers. Boot space has also increased by 30-litres to 280-litres, which in turn increases 950-litres with the 60:40 split rear seats folded down+.
Standard safety equipment levels include six airbags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Traction Control System (TCS),Emergency Stop Signalling (ESS), Hill Hold Assist (HHA), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), and ISOFIX child seat anchors on the two outer rear seats. The ABS anti-lock brakes are back up by Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA).
As with every Mazda, the Mazda2 underwent an exacting ‘gram strategy’ during which it shed as much unnecessary weight as possiblewithout compromising strength, comfort or passive safety. Extensive use of ultra-high tensile steels, a structurally integrated floorplan and lightweight SKYACTIV engines and transmissions means the kerb weights of the Mazda2 range from just 1035kg to 1060kg.
Economy and Emissions
The combination of low kerb weight, slippery aerodynamics and ultra-efficient SKYACTIV-G petrol engine and SKYACTIV-transmissions results in the Mazda2 posting some excellent CO2 emission and economy figures. The 75ps 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol manual model returns 111g/km and 60.1mpg on the combined cycle.
Despite its lightweight and stiff chassis, exceptionally high refinement levels have been achieved in the Mazda2 by thanks to the adoption of noise-insulating glass in the windscreen and additional under bonnet sound proofing. Plus, to reduce high-frequency noise entering the cabin from the rear, sound absorbing material has been added to the inside of the tailgate, the parcel shelf and the spare wheel well.
