Ten Second Review

The Mazda2 is a strong option if you're looking for a quality supermini and has been usefully improved in this upgraded form. This update brings mild hybrid technology to the range for the first time, plus some minor handling upgrades and a smarter look. As before, this model packs in some big car features into a pertly-styled body and features great real-world economy. It's a real contender to the likes of the Fiesta, Corsa, 208 and Clio.

Background

The Mazda2 is going places. The first Mazda2 sold 410,000 units between 2003 and 2007. The second generation model had a seven year run at the market, but had already eclipsed its predecessor's total midway through 2010. Both cars owed a lot to Ford's strategic partnership with Mazda, effectively being rebodied Fiestas which, as anyone who's ever driven a modern Fiesta will happily admit, is no bad thing. For the third generation version, this current car, launched in 2015, Mazda went it alone, this MK3 model '2 riding on its own SKYACTIV chassis technology. At launch, that looked quite a gamble but Mazda has its tail up at the moment after the success of the latest Mazda3, CX-30 and MX-5 models and has no hesitation in making bold claims for its supermini contender. Now, they've further updated the car.

Driving Experience

Buyers now choose from two versions of the 1.5-litre SKYACTIV-G petrol unit with 75 or 90PS on tap. Power is transferred to the front wheels via five and six-speed manual transmissions as well as a six-speed automatic. That's as before; what's changed is the addition of mild hybrid technology to this powerplant that's made it cleaner and more efficient. Mazda has made some dynamic changes too. Already a supermini well-regarded for its handling, subtle updates have enhanced its driver appeal with changes that include use of a urethane top mount in the rear dampers and revisions to the power steering to improve response and feel. In addition, this revised Mazda2 features G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) - the evolved version of Mazda's GVC system, which now uses the brakes to apply direct yaw movement control in addition to the previous system's engine control. Basically, it helps you get grip down through the bends. As before, the suspension has been set up to be Volkswagen-firm which you'll feel on poor surfaces but the flipside of this is that the Mazda2 offers reassuring body control in corners. The steering is an electrically-assisted system, so don't expect bucketloads of feedback, but you can count on clean response and perfect accuracy. For this lightly revised model, front and rear damper settings have been revised to enhance ride quality, while 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 is supposed to result in improved steering feel. Overall, with a sporty feel and easy manoeuvrability, the Mazda2 is more than just a city scoot. It's got a welcome element of long distance versatility too.

Design and Build

Visually, the upgraded Mazda2 is marked out by the adoption of the latest evolution of Mazda's KODO design. The smarter grille features a mesh pattern, bringing it into line with the style seen on the latest generation Mazda3 hatchback, while the wider signature wing and revised headlights are supposed to heighten the car's 'sporty' appearance. At the rear, the redesigned bumper aims to give the impression of a lower stance on the road. Inside, revisions to dashboard trims, air vent louvres, door inserts and the instrument hood are examples of how improvements to materials and design have enhanced the Mazda2's already upmarket interior. Highlighting Mazda's driver-centred focus, the new front seats feature a more advanced design and structure that better supports the body and helps maintain a posture in which the pelvis is upright and the spine maintains a natural S-shaped curve. The comfort of all occupants has also been considered with a host of upgrades designed to improve refinement and interior quietness. New damping materials have been added in the cabin and a reduced gap around the base of the B-Pillar further upgrades sound insulation, as do revised sealing rubbers between the roof panel and the boot. As before, cabin quality is a level above what most other superminis provide. Plus the boot's deep and boasts 280-litres of room with the seats in place - or 960-litres when they're folded.

Market and Model

Priced from just under £16,000 to just over £18,000, the latest Mazda2 range features a single five-door bodystyle and four revised trim levels: 'SE-L', 'SE-L Nav', 'Sport Nav' and 'GT Sport Nav'. The base 'SE-L' variant comes only with the entry-level 75PS engine and now features rear parking sensors, 15-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, climate control and cruise control. The other variants are powered by the 90PS version of 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G engine and feature Mazda Connect navigation with a seven-inch colour touch-screen, plus Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone-mirroring. In addition, the safety equipment tally is enhanced with Front Smart City Brake Support, Lane Departure Warning and Lane-keep Assist. From 'Sport Nav'-spec onwards, the Mazda2 is marked out by 16-inch alloy wheels, gloss black grille treatment, rear privacy glass, shark-fin antenna and a chrome exhaust trim, plus it benefits from the smart keyless entry. At the top of the range, the flagship 'GT Sport Nav trim' features high-end features normally the preserve of more expensive sectors, including a reversing camera, leather seats and a colour head-up display, plus heated front seats and steering wheel.

Cost of Ownership

All manual Mazda2 models benefit from mild-hybridisation with the introduction of the Mazda M Hybrid powerplant. Utilising a Antegrated start generator (B-ISG) and brake regeneration, it mobilises the B-ISG's power generation to make the most of the energy stored in the capacitor to reduce load on the engine and enable quick restart to help lower emissions and improve fuel economy with extended auto engine stop time. As a result manual versions of the Mazda2 emit 94-95g/km, depending on trim level. As for peace of mind, well given the reliability of Mazda products, you'd have thought the company might have wanted to improve upon its usual three year/60,000 mile package and take on the Korean brands. Not so. That familiar standard warranty remains in place for this car. Still, the cover provided does continue to include three years of European roadside assistance.
