A couple of days ago, we reported that Mazda Thailand was preparing to debut the updated Mazda 2.
Visual changes aren’t as apparent as the facelifted Mazda 3, but keen eyed readers will notice the chrome surrounds on the front fog light housings, updated LED-illuminated turn signals in the wing mirrors and a new shark fin antenna. On top of that, the wheel also receive a new Hyper Black finish.
Interior updates are also minor, with some improvements done to the dash board finishing and a new Crimson Brown colour inside.
Alongside the facelifted Mazda 3, the smaller sibling also features Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control, which is designed to improve cornering capabilities by managing torque that goes to each wheel in response to steering angle.
Mazda Thailand is also introducing three new colours, namely Eternal Blue Mica, Meteor Grey and Jet Black. These new colours will join Mazda’s existing range of colours like Soul Red, Snowflake White Pearl, Titanium Flash and Aluminum Metallic.
Airbag count remains at two, though the Mazda 2 does receive ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), TCS, Hill Start Assist (HSA), GVC, paddle shifters, cruise control on top of Advance Blind Spot Monitoring (ABSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
In terms of pricing, both the Mazda 2 hatchback and sedan feature the same price tag, but some variants will see an increase of between THB 1,000 to 3,000. For other trim levels, the price jump is even more, between THB 20,000 to 28,000.
