2015 Mazda 2 Price in UK – Details of the prices and trims that will be available with the upcoming Mazda2 have been released by the Japanese firm. The car is the first 2 to be sold on a platform not shared by the Ford Fiesta – making it a direct rival
2015 Mazda 2 Price in UK
Interestingly, considering the Ford Fiesta and Vauxhall Corsa are the 2′s main rivals, the company has set an £11,995 starting price – £2,000 more than the Ford and £3,000 more than the Vauxhall. Mazda counters by having more standard equipment but it’s slightly disappointing it can’t compete with its most basic rivals on cost.
2015 Mazda 2 Specs
The mid-range SE-L Nav model comes with a seven-inch colour touch-screen, a range of Mazda-specific apps to link your smartphone to the car, DAB digital radio and sat-nav. Sport Nav models also get larger alloy wheels, keyless entry and full climate control.
From launch, a special Sports Launch edition will be available from £14,995 which gets privacy glass, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors and a free upgrade to metallic, mica or pearlescent paint.
The new three-tier Mazda2 line-up starts at $14,990 plus on-road costs for the Neo model with a 79kW/139Nm 1.5-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv petrol engine and six-speed manual gearbox. Next up is the Maxx model from $16,990 (plus on-roads) which gets a more powerful 81kW/141Nm version of the same 1.5-litre Skyactiv engine.
The range is topped by the $19,990 (plus on-roads) Genki which gets the same mechanical package as the Maxx but a different level of equipment. All models are available with an optional six-speed automatic that adds $2000 to the price.
But Mazda Australia has announced a drive-away pricing offer for the indefinite future. That means the Neo will start at $16,990 for the manual, the Maxx from $18,990 and Genki from $21,990. The different engine performance is largely down to unique exhaust systems and compression ratios, which also has an impact on fuel economy.
The manual Neo uses 5.4-litres per 100km while the auto model sips a claimed 5.5L/100km. But the more powerful versions are also more efficient and use 5.2L/100km for the manual and just 4.9L/100km for the automatic. Over the old model’s engine those figures represent a 28 per cent efficiency improvement for the higher specification engine and 19 per cent for the standard engine.
