Mazda 2 hatchback received an improved engine and a special version


This model has undergone minor changes in Japan, and the already quite extensive list of Mazda 2 trim levels has been replenished with a special version of the Sunlit Citrus.

Mazda has introduced the updated Mazda 2 hatchback to the home market. Now this model can be equipped with a 1.5 Skyactiv-G engine with a “high compression ratio” (14: 1). The previous powertrain had a compression ratio of 12: 1. The Diagonal Vortex Combustion technology (diagonal vortex combustion) helped to improve this indicator.

And thanks to her, fuel consumption has decreased by 6.8%: 4.9 liters for every hundred run instead of the previous 5.2 liters. With such an engine, car owners will be able to save on transport fees. Both motors deliver the same 110 horsepower output. (at 6000 rpm), but the maximum torque of the updated motor is slightly higher – 142 N • m.

As for the new version of the Sunlit Citrus, its main feature is the bright lemon-colored inserts in the cabin. When decorating the interior, artificial leather similar to suede was used. And the hatchback also got exclusive floor mats, and the list of standard equipment will be replenished with an all-round visibility system.

In addition to two gasoline engines, the novelty also retained the 105-horsepower 1.5 Skyactiv-D diesel engine, combined with a manual transmission or “automatic” six-speed automatic transmission.

The drive can be front or full, depending on the selected transmission. New options for Mazda 2 include wireless charging for gadgets and wireless Apple CarPlay, and the hatchback body can be painted in a new color – “platinum quartz metallic”.
