How It Looks - Interior
The interior styling of the Mazda2 is as you would expect functional and uncluttered with chunky and tactile switchgear. The cabin is spacious with a light and airy feel, the black interior plastic is of a good quality and the dashboard has a carbon fibre effect. The round side air vents have a look of the MX-5 about them whilst the titanium effect centre console has the family resemblance of the Mazda6. The instrument dials, door insert panels, air vents and gear shift trim also follow this theme and have brushed aluminium surrounds.
The Mazda2's seat upholstery was a black nylon type fabric with contrasting blue inserts, this colour theme is continued with the door switch panel trim in matching blue (optional). Both the seat fabric and carpets were of a good quality and should prove durable.
