Topping the petrol launch range will be the new Mazda2 Sport, with a 1.5-litre 103ps engine and a full sports styling kit, priced from £11,799 (OTR). This model will also gain 12 extra items of equipment, including: 16-inch alloy wheels, dynamic stability control, traction control, cruise control, fog lights, rain sensing wipers and auto lights, electric rear windows, trip computer, speed alarm, six audio speakers and climate control air-conditioning.
The all-new Mazda2 petrol range will be joined by a 1.4-litre 68ps diesel engine a few months after the September petrol launch. The 1.4-litre 68ps diesel will be available with a choice of two equipment levels TS and TS2 and will include the same specification as the petrol models.
