The Mazda 2 has just been crowned as Japan’s Car of the Year and it is due for launch in the coming weeks in the UK and should make a big impact here too.

This next generation supermini is a five door hatchback which is packed with equipment and has lots of capabilities to make it a class leader.

Design-wise, there’s a lot of familiar features to the excellent Mazda 3 including the interior that is so surprisingly comfortable and spacious, especially for the driver and there’s lots of legroom in the rear.

Mazda2 has several ‘firsts’

The Mazda 2 will have the first head-up display in its class with the firm’s active driving display. This gadget sees the car’s important information being relayed onto the windscreen.

There’s also a complete range of Mazda’s Skyactiv technology including the 1.5 litre low compression diesel unit which will produce 105 PS and have CO2 emissions of just 89g/km.

The other Skyactiv engines are all petrol-fuelled and each delivers excellent fuel economy.

Handling and performance in the Mazda 2

Mazda have also played close attention to the handling of the vehicle, and there’s a new chassis to help deliver a sporty level of handling.

As is the norm now with new cars, the Mazda 2 comes with an excellent level of online capabilities for everyone in the vehicle, with a system called MZD Connect.
