Mazda2 2023 updates and pricing

Mazda2 – One of the country’s best-selling small cars – the Mazda2 – has undergone an extensive refresh that redefines style in the segment.

2023 Mazda2

Up front, the fascia has been adorned with a new black or body colour grille, while the addition of a sleeker bumper design creates a streamlined new look. All Mazda2 hatchbacks also sport an asymmetrically placed colour accent on the front grille and rear bumper, enhancing the car’s youthful spirit.

Hatchback variants, as well as the top-of-the-line GT sedan, are treated to a redesigned rear bumper, which accentuates the two body styles’ attractive profiles.

Two new paint schemes – Aero Grey Metallic and Airstream Blue Metallic – are offered to Mazda2 buyers for the first time, contributing to a now nine-strong colour pallet.

Mazda2 Pure and Pure SP

Mazda2’s two most accessible grades – Pure and Pure SP – come with a number of bespoke features inspired by Mazda’s evolved Kodo design language.

These unique offerings include three coloured dash trim pieces finished in Pure White, Mirror Black or Mint, which are determined by the car’s external paint scheme.

The Pure SP ups the aesthetic stakes further with a black film covering for the roof.

Mazda2 Evolve and GT

Taking cues from the sporty Genki of a decade ago, the Evolve and range-topping GT variants of the updated Mazda2 have adopted a similarly dynamic philosophy.

Inside, the Evolve and GT are finished with a sharp black interior contrasted with red highlights extending to the seat stitching and air vent surrounds.

The GT takes it to another level with partial leather seats, a red and black dash, an all-new, aero-inspired multi-spoke alloy wheel design and polished, dual exhaust tips.

Barring the Pure, all grades come equipped with a streamlined ‘shark fin’ antenna, bolstering the Mazda2’s chic aesthetic.

“Mazda2 has always been a fan favourite for our newest road users and buyers who enjoy a premium product that also adeptly delivers on safety, quality, economy and drivability,” Vinesh Bhindi, Managing Director of Mazda Australia, said.

The updated Mazda2 will go on sale in June 2023, with deliveries beginning in July 2023.
