August 4, 2021

The 2022 Mazda2 goes on sale from October 1 with the popular supermini gaining new trim levels and improved efficiency across the range.

As before, the Mazda2 range is powered exclusively by the 1.5-litre Skyactiv-G petrol engine, and for the 2022 model year, the 115ps version has been reintroduced alongside the 75ps and 90ps outputs.

Starting with the £16,475 75ps SE-L, the seven-model 2022 Mazda2 range tops out with the new £20,845 115ps GT Sport Tech model.

The 90ps engine is offered in SE-L and Sport trims, with Sport cars fitted with manual or automatic transmission. The 90ps engine is also offered in GT Sport trim and has a choice of transmission for the first time.

The flagship 115ps GT Sport Tech is exclusively matched to the six-speed manual transmission, and with the exception of the entry-level 75ps SE-L, all manual versions feature Mazda’s M Hybrid mild-hybrid system and now wear the e-Skyactiv G badge.

As has always been the case with the Mazda2, the 2022 model sees excellent standard specifications across the entire range. All models feature navigation, cruise control, integrated Bluetooth and air conditioning, along with the introduction of wireless Apple CarPlay from Sport trim onwards.

GT Sport models gets a colour head-up display, reversing camera, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. And GT Sport Tech has a standard equipment tally that includes items not normally found as standard in this sector, including adaptive LED headlights, blind spot monitoring, rear smart city brake support and a 360 degree camera.

Commenting on the arrival of the new Mazda2, Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director Mazda UK said: “The Mazda2 may be the smallest car we produce, but it has at its heart the same values of style, driver involvement and quality that mark out all our vehicles. The Mazda2 is now more efficient than ever, while thanks to the generous equipment tally across all models, we have a distinctive and premium contender in what is still one of the most competitive segments in the UK car market.”
