The Mazda2 Hybrid first joined the Mazda line up in 2022 and since then has been a popular choice as it continues to be sold alongside the recently updated Mazda2 to ensure customers have a range of choices in the small hatchback market. These new updates for 2024 have made the car "more Mazda", distinguishing it from its Toyota counterpart, the Yaris.
On the exterior, the front bumper and grille have been redesigned, black alloy wheels and gloss black wing mirrors have been introduced for the Homura and Homura Plus specifications, and the rear also has a fresh look with the revised bumper shape and unique tailgate garnish. As well as this, an exciting new paint option has been added to the variety, Glass Blue, providing even more choice to Mazda2 Hybrid customers.
The Mazda2 Hybrid is a popular choice due to its exceptional fuel efficiency and reduced emissions as a result of the intelligent hybrid technology which seamlessly transitions between electric and petrol. The Hybrid technology uses kinetic energy gained during driving, deceleration and braking to continuously recharge the onboard battery, allowing the electric motor to assist the 1.5L petrol engine and improve its efficiency.
When in EV mode, you can expect a smooth and quiet driving experience as you may expect from an EV and are able to travel short distances using up no fuel. The 59kW electric motor delivers really responsive acceleration whilst being environmentally friendly around towns and cities.
As Mazda owners may expect, the Mazda2 Hybrid is well equipped with a variety of technology. For 2024, the Mazda2 Hybrid has upgraded Apple Carplay & Android Auto from a wired system to wireless and the USB ports have been updated to USB-C.
The range topping Homura Plus grade features a panoramic sunroof, creating a more spacious and open feel in the cabin.
Simplify reversing and parking with the Mazda2 Hybrid Reversing Camera, which comes as standard on all specifications.
To avoid distractions, the Heads-Up Display projects essential information onto the windscreen, like vehicle speed and directions.
Comfortable & Spacious Interior
Despite being a small hatchback, there is plenty of legroom for up to 5 adults, as well as 286L of loadspace.
The Mazda2 Hybrid received the maximum 5 star Euro-NCAP safety rating and has a variety of safety features designed to ensure a safe and comfortable driving experience.
The Pre-Crash Safety System features an array of sensors to pre-empt collisions, maximising safety and reducing the severity of unavoidable collisions. This system also features pedestrian and cyclist detection, helping to keep you and other road users safe.
The Lane Tracking Assist has 4 main components to help keep you and your passengers safe - these include: lane centring, lane departure alert, steering assistance and vehicle sway warning.
Adaptive Cruise Control works in conjunction with the vehicle's Road Sign Assist to ensure the vehicle remains under the speed limit. The system will bring you to a complete stop should the car in front suddenly halt and then will resume driving once the car has moved on.
To align with the new Mazda Europe strategy, the Mazda2 Hybrid specification naming has been updated.
