Sleek KODO – Soul of Motion Design.

Mazda’s KODO — Soul of Motion design language captures the coiled power, vitality and grace of a wild animal in motion and brings it to vivid life within the compact dimensions of the new Mazda 2.

Richly sculpted forms and forward-inclined lines create a well-planted look of vigorous motion, delivering an overwhelmingly powerful visual presence far beyond any other vehicle in the class.

Interior

Mazda 2 is the new global benchmark for interior design, with finely crafted forms and textures that dramatically transcend the class and speak directly to the heart: you’ll feel genuine joy and pride of ownership every time you sit in the car. For the driver, a snug, wrap around cockpit enhances Mazda’s signature oneness with the vehicle, while front and rear occupants enjoy a comfortable, roomy cabin whose space belies the body’s compact proportions, with refinement that surpasses the class.

The cockpit is designed according to Mazda’s advanced Human-Machine Interface (HMI) concept, allowing presentation of a wide range of information without taking attention away from the road. Building on this safety-oriented HMI design, the Mazda 2 also offers the latest Mazda Connect (MZD Connect) for connectivity functions to enable sharing of information and experiences with the world outside the car.

Features that empower you.

Mazda Connect (MZD Connect) is an integrated navigation and infotainment system that enhances the driving experience with seamless connectivity functions.

The commander control on the centre console provides intuitive and accurate operation. On the another hand, the audio system offers a wide selection of music sources, including AM/FM radio, CDs and mobile audio players.

Drive Selection switch on the shift gate allows switching to Sport mode, automatically setting the transmission and engine characteristics for powerful acceleration and linear response when merging onto a crowded highway.

Performance

The technical breakthroughs of SkyActiv-G engines realize an astonishing increase in fuel efficiency – up to 15% – as well as a higher level of driving pleasure.

The SkyActiv-Drive 6-speed automatic transmission enhances Mazda 2’s response for fast, smoother automatic gear-shifting.

Safety

At Mazda, we believe genuine safety can only be realized when driver awareness and control is maximized so that the risk of accidents is minimized.

Mazda’s Proactive Safety philosophy is firmly grounded in a belief in the driver’s abilities, aiming to support safer driving while maintaining all the fun of the open road. First is an optimum driver environment with good visibility, well-positioned controls, easy-to-read instruments and minimal distractions, enhanced by Mazda’s further evolved recognition support such as parking sensors and back-up monitor. And finally there is passive safety to help protect occupants and minimize injuries if an accident should occur.

DSC with TCS electronically controls braking force applied to each wheel to help prevent under- or oversteer and maintain vehicle stability when cornering on slippery roads or during sudden steering inputs.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS)

Mazda 2 features wide-ranging vehicle-control technologies to keep the driver in command and passengers safe. The four-wheel Anti-lock Brake System (4W-ABS) prevents wheel lockup and assures maneuverability during emergency braking.

The back-up monitor system features a wide-angle camera to give you a clear and comprehensive view around the rear of Mazda 2 when reversing, further enhancing safety. Obstacles in the blind spots are displayed in the instrument panel’s seven-inch centre display.

Back-up monitor system

The body provides excellent collision safety performance. Extensive use of ultra-high-tensile steel gives strength with low weight, while the framework absorbs and channels energy away from the cabin.

Body Structure

Front airbags are fitted as standard equipment to provide ample protection in a frontal collision. Optional side and curtain airbags mitigate the effects of side impacts within the relatively short occupant-to-door distances in a compact car, providing another layer of protection in depth against physical shock and injury in a collision.
