Priced from just over £13,000 to just over £17,000, the 2018 Mazda2 range features and sngle five-door bodystyle and five revised trim levels: 'SE+', 'SE-L+', 'SE-L Nav+', 'Sport Nav+' and 'GT Sport Nav+'. The base 'SE+' variant comes only with the entry-level 75PS engine and now features 15-inch alloy wheels, heated power fold mirrors, 60:40 split rear seats and electric rear windows. Offered with both the 75 and 90PS engines, the 'SE-L+' and 'SE-L Nav+' models also have enhanced equipment with the addition of dusk-sensing lights, rear parking sensors, rain sensing front wipers and climate control air conditioning. Matched to the 90PS engine, the popular 'Sport Nav' trim gets you a black rear roof spoiler, while the range topping 'GT Sport Nav+' variant can be ordered with either the 90 or 115PS engine. All 'GT Sport' models now get a reversing camera.
Plusher versions of the Mazda2 feature the ingenious Active Driving Display - the first head-up display in this class - and lots of safety kit. This includes an auto braking function, blind spot detection, a lane departure warning system and high beam control that automatically dips the lights so as not to blind oncoming vehicles. The front, side and curtain airbags have all been redesigned to offer better occupant protection while the front end crash structure has been improved markedly. Hence this model's five-star EuroNCAP rating.
