The Mazda 2 hatchback and sedan wade into 2021 with no changes, save for a limited 100th Anniversary model atop the range.

    The cheapest Mazda on sale in Australia was significantly updated early in 2020, with a raft of new safety features and a tweaked design to match the latest Mazda 3 and CX-30 on the outside.

    The range starts at $20,990 before on-road costs for the G15 Pure manual hatch and sedan, rising to $25,990 before on-roads for the G15 GT auto hatch and sedan.

    The Mazda 2 is unusual in that, in the proud tradition of the 121, it offers a sedan variant in the light car class.

    With the discontinuation of the Holden Barina, Honda City and Hyundai Accent, that leaves the 2 as the only sedan in its class.

    All 2021 Mazda 2 models come with a naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine producing 82kW of power and 144Nm of torque.

    It’s mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

    Fuel Economy

    The 2021 Mazda 2 consumes 5.4L/100km on the combined cycle when equipped with a manual transmission and 5.3L/100km with the automatic.

    It runs on 91RON regular unleaded fuel.


    The 2021 Mazda 2 measures 4065mm long and 1495mm tall as a hatchback and 4340mm long and 1470mm tall as a sedan.

    Both body styles are 1695mm wide, while kerb weight is almost identical – 1050kg in the G15 Pure hatch with a manual and 1060kg in the manual G15 Pure sedan.

    Luggage space measures 250L in the hatchback and 440L in the sedan.

    Servicing and Warranty

    The Mazda 2 requires servicing every 12 months or 10,000km, whichever comes first.

    The first, third, and fifth service will cost $315, while the second and fourth will set you back $345. That means five years of maintenance will set you back $1635.

    As with the wider Mazda range, the 2 has a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.


    The Mazda 2 has a five-star rating from ANCAP based on testing carried out in 2015.
