Mazda 2

Mazda continues to go from strength to strength with the Mazda 2, or as Mazda would have you say it, ‘Mazda2’.

Launched in 2002, the Mazda2 has improved across the board since – in performance, value and equipment – becoming an Australian favourite, thanks to its attractive design, clever technology and high-end cabin ambiance. Available as both a sedan and hatch, the Mazda2’s large range, priced from $20,990 for the 2 G15 Pure up to $27,490 for the 2 G15 GT 100TH Anniversary, offers buyers choices from the traditional cheap city runabouts up to more luxurious models. The Mazda2 also forms the basis for the popular CX-3 SUV, sharing its dashboard, platform and suspension.

This vehicle is also known as Mazda Demio.

  • Mazda 2 Bluetooth: How to Use Bluetooth in a Mazda 2?

    To connect your phone via Bluetooth to the Mazda 2, there’s a simple procedure to follow. The first thing to do is to make sure your phone has Bluetooth enabled and is switched to Visible/Discoverable. The second is to make sure that the car is stationary.

    The pairing procedure then goes as follows: Select the Settings icon on the info-screen in the car. Then select the Devices tab. Then select Bluetooth and turn the Bluetooth to On. Select Add Device and switch to the device operation.

    Using your phone, search for the car’s signal which should show as `Mazda’ from the list of devices on your phone’s screen. Depending on your phone, you then need to input the four-digit code (devices with Bluetooth 2.0) or a six-digit code displayed on the car’s screen (Bluetooth 2.1 or higher). That should complete the pairing process and form there you can add functions such as downloading your contact book to the car’s system by following the prompts.

    For more instructions on how to play music through the system, more setup options, and troubleshooting problems, refer to the vehicle’s owner’s manual.

  • What car should I buy to replace my 2006 Toyota Corolla?

    There are still plenty of great small cars around within your budget, Agnes, and they all have good safety packages (or we wouldn’t recommend them). Look at offerings such as the Suzuki Swift Navigator (with the optional autonomous emergency braking) for around $17,000 (plus on-road costs) or the Kia Rio S at around $19,000 or Kia Picanto S (one size smaller than the Rio) at closer to $16,000. Both the Kias also feature the brand’s excellent seven-year warranty, capped-price servicing and free roadside assistance which is great peace of mind.

    The Volkswagen Polo is a classy drive but a little more expensive at closer to $21,000 for the 85TSi Comfortline. Actually, to be honest, you’ve missed the boat on bargain small cars by a couple of years. Firm favourites such as the Toyota Yaris and Mazda 2 have both been updated relatively recently and have recorded big price jumps in the process. The cheapest Yaris with an automatic transmission is now around $23,000 (it was less than $17,000 back in 2018) while the Mazda 2 Maxx went from being a sub-$17,000 proposition in 2018 to a $23,000 car by the time you add an automatic transmission in 2020.

  • Best small hatch under $30,000?

    The Mazda 2 is a great choice. It has always been towards the front of the small hatchbacks when it comes to safety and is definitely one of the better littlies to actually drive, too.

    Mazda facelifted the 2 in 2017 and took the opportunity to add blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert to the vehicle at that point in time. The catch is that the safety tech was only standard on the more expensive models and both the Neo and Maxx versions missed out. You could option that package when you ordered a Neo or Maxx, but it cost extra, and some people didn’t see the value in it.

    So, if you’re shopping for a second-hand Mazda 2 Neo or Maxx, make sure you check carefully that the options you want are fitted. If you’re buying brand-new, no problem, because the most recent upgrade to the 2 saw rear-cross traffic alert and blind-sport monitoring become standard across the range. Lane-departure warning and lane-keep assist also became standard at that time. Significantly, autonomous emergency braking was standard on all Mazda 2s built after the 2017 facelift, making the car a very safe package.

    As for alternatives, the world is your oyster with $30,000 in your pocket. There are lots of really good, safe cars out there in that price bracket, but, again, the Mazda 2 should definitely be on your short-list.

  • Is the Mazda 2 Neo a reliable car?

    The Mazda 2 certainly meets your requirements of safety and reliability, but so too does the Toyota Yaris or Corolla, Hyundai i30, Kia Picanto or Rio.

Mazda 2 Interior

Despite several years in market, the Mazda2's interior design looks good. As our images show, there's no leather trim here, but multi-textured surfaces, with tastefully applied contrast surfaces are a plus, although the dot-matrix multimedia control panel in the centre of the dashboard is a bit of a sore spot and hardly ergonomic to reach across and use.

And in terms of space, the simple fact is, there are far more practical options in this segment. The Mazda2 has zero amenities for rear-seat passengers, and limited on-board space. The sort of car that would need regular breaks on any road trip.

Shown above are interior details for the Mazda 2 2019.
