The Upgraded Mazda2 Range On Sale Now - Nine Strong Model Range


The bold and sophisticated exterior design of the Mazda2 model range is now enhanced for 2006 with new interior and exterior colours, new front, rear and fog lights, new design alloy wheels and black body trim updates. On the inside, Mazda2 has two new trim levels, and a new audio system with CD player. Mechanically the Mazda2 for 2006 is unchanged.

On sale now in the UK, the upgraded Mazda2 offers customers a nine-strong model line-up. Prices start at £8,700 (on-the-road) and rise to £10,630, with a choice of four powertrains (all Euro Stage 4 compliant) and three equipment levels. Three new body colours are available – Sea Grey Mica, Breeze Green Metallic and Neptune Green Mica - in the range of 10 exterior colours and the Capella now has stylish five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels as standard. The 1.4 diesel with the five-speed ASM semi-automatic transmission is no longer available.

Exterior - Sophistication enhanced

The 2006 Mazda2 retains its athletic and sophisticated exterior with the unmistakable Zoom-Zoom front end, strong shoulder lines and broad stance for its fun to drive appearance.

Overall length (3,925mm) and width (1,680mm, excluding door mirrors) remain as before. Enhancing this sportiness are newly designed headlights (now with round-shaped combination lamps for even more elegance), new clear-glass rear combination lamps (to emphasise the youthful look) and new ‘all black’ rear pillar design (which visually lowers the rear of the car).

Standard wheels and tyres on S and Antares models are 14-inch steel with plastic trim covers and 175/65 R14 tyres, while new five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels with 195/45 R16 low-profile tyres are standard on the Capella.
