A completely new direction for sub-compact vehicles is now here in NZ with the new Mazda2 – Great things certainly come in small packages.
The new Mazda2 is a striking expression of the KODO-Soul of Motion – a design language, which has been refined throughout the Mazda showroom. KODO has given the Mazda2 what is being described as a mature, yet lively expression with contours that are full of vitality. New LED headlamps adopt a thick, round light guide surrounding the centre, resembling the pupil of a wild animal’s eye. While the signature wing has evolved further to give an even more powerful three-dimensional look. The rear lamps now wrap onto the tailgate to create a slim, sharp appearance.
Inside; every detail has dramatically evolved with the aim of becoming a new global benchmark for interior design – a finely crafted interior effusing a feeling of quality that surpasses the class. The interior establishes a balanced contrast between a cockpit zone that enables the driver to concentrate on driving and a passenger seat zone that provides an open-feeling space. The interior benefits from the careful selection of a high-quality yet playful blend of materials, including satin chrome, high-gloss colour panels, carbon-fiber-finish grain, and stitched leather.
The Mazda2 is a car with heightened awareness, setting a new benchmark in safety and challenging everything in the sub-compact class with an enviable array of cutting-edge safety technology. It embraces a safety philosophy that is focused on minimising the possibilities of an accident by identifying potential risks early, and maximising the ways in which the driver can operate the vehicle safely.
Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE advanced safety technologies are what makes the all-new Mazda2 not just one of the safest cars Mazda has produced, but also one of the smartest. With sensing devices, such as milliwave radar units, and cameras that alert the driver to potential hazards, it allows them to take action to prevent collisions and accidents from happening.
