Introduced updated hatchback Mazda2 2020July 18, 2019
The Japanese novelty, which is positioned by the automaker as a hatchback 2020 model year, has received more technology and various improvements than ever.
The fourth generation of the Japanese Mazda2 hatchback has been on the market for five years now, but it’s only now that a pint-sized model is receiving a long-awaited update. Presented today in Japan, the baby lost its nickname Demio, under which it was sold in the domestic market of Japan – the car now has its global name Mazda2. In some countries, this car will be sold as a hatchback Toyota Yaris.
Changes in the design of Japanese cars are very minor, which is not necessarily bad, since the previous Mazda2 was already one of the most stylish models in its segment. The novelty has inherited some of the design features of the magnificent new Mazda3 and combines them with a more refined interior, where the new front seats provide a more comfortable driving.
Mazda2 2020 model year combines more technology than ever before – adaptive LED headlights, a circular video review system, a traffic sign recognition function and an assistance system when driving along a selected lane.
Mazda revised the car’s suspension to provide a more comfortable ride, while the interior trim was better. In addition, customers will be able to order a car with a heated steering wheel, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, radar cruise control, as well as an automatic dimming rear-view mirror, and the infotainment system will support Apple CarPlay and Android Avto services.
In Europe, front-wheel drive versions of the new Mazda2 will be available, equipped with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine with 75 or 90 horsepower and a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission. In the domestic market, the car will also be offered with a 1.8-liter diesel engine and all-wheel drive.
While in Japan, car sales will begin on September 12, European buyers will have to wait until the beginning of 2020.
