2020 Mazda 2 price and features

The cost of buying Mazda’s cheapest model has risen, but the standard kit is generous

Mazda has updated its popular city hatch and sedan for 2020, adding extra safety kit, and adjusting prices accordingly.

The line-up has been refined, with just three variants now on offer, starting with the G15 Pure, then the G15 Evolve, and finally the G15 GT range-topper. Both sedan and hatch bodystyles are on offer, though not on every model grade.

Previously, the cheapest Mazda 2 you could buy was the manual Neo for $15,570, though the range now starts with the G15 Pure, which in its cheapest manual guise starts at $20,990. Opting for an automatic gearbox adds $2000. A sedan bodystyle can be chosen for no extra cost.

The G15 Evolve is only available as an automatic hatch, and costs $24,490, while the G15 GT wears a $25,990 sticker price. The range-topping model is only available as an auto, but can be bought as either a hatch or sedan.

Powering each Mazda 2 is a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine, sending 82kW and 141Nm to the front wheels.

In automatic guise the claimed combined fuel consumption is 5.3L/100km, rising to 5.4L/100km for the manual.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard across all models, while active safety is boosted across the range – lane-keep assist, blindspot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are all standard features for each variant.

Evolve and GT models gain traffic sign recognition and an auto-dimming rear- view mirror, while every high-spec variant is fitted with radar cruise control and a 360 degree camera.

Visual changes to the Mazda 2 include a restyled grille, bumper, and headlights.

Mazda expects 77 percent of buyers will opt for the base-level Pure model, with 16 percent choosing the Evolve and only seven percent driving away in a range-topping variant.

While it’s a pleasant surprise to see a manual gearbox remain on offer, Mazda estimates just six percent of all Mazda 2 buyers will want a three-pedal variant. The hatch bodystyle is predicted to make up 85 percent of sales.
