The new Mazda 2 is now on sale in Australia.

    UPDATE, 9/10/2023: Mazda has increased prices across the entire Mazda 2 range by $310 from October 1. We have updated this article to reflect these changes.

    A Mazda Australia spokesperson said this price rise is due to “market changes, raw materials and production costs”, along with “currency fluctuations”.

    They also confirmed there are no specific specification changes that coincide with this price rise.

    In addition to having a fresh new look, the Mazda 2 is also more efficient for 2023.

    All automatic models use 5.0L/100km on the combined cycle, although they’ve lost 1kW of power and 2Nm of torque.

    The manual G15 Pure’s outputs are unchanged.

    All models get a redesigned front bumper and a new black or body-colour grille, with hatchback models getting a refreshed rear bumper, too.

    There’s also a colour accent on the front grille and rear bumper, similar to what’s currently available on CX-5 Touring Active and GT SP variants, while Aero Grey and Airstream Blue exterior finishes join the colour palette.

    The entry-level Pure and Pure SP variants are available with coloured dash trim finishes in Pure White, Mirror Black or Mint, depending on the external paint colour. The Pure SP also adds a black film on the roof.

    Inside, the Evolve and GT variants have a black interior with red highlights on the seat stitching and air vent surrounds.

    The flagship GT also has partial leather seats, a red and black dash, aero-inspired multi-spoke alloy wheels, and polished dual exhaust tips.

    All models besides the entry-level Pure now come equipped with a shark fin antenna, rather than a traditional unit.

    This is the second facelift for the current-generation Mazda 2, which first launched back in 2014.
