2017 Mazda2 Neo Hatch
EXPERT RATING
7
The Neo opens the now four model range of Mazda's popular hatch, with prices unchanged at $14,990 for manual and $16,990 for the six-speed auto, hatch or sedan.

The Neo opens the now four model range of Mazda's popular hatch, with prices unchanged at $14,990 for manual and $16,990 for the six-speed auto, hatch or sedan.

The Neo lands on your driveway with 15-inch wheels, power windows and mirrors (now with power folding feature), cloth trim, air-conditioning, cruise control, four-speaker stereo with Bluetooth and USB, keyless start and rear parking sensors.

As with the 3, the 2 has safety features no other car at this level can manage. As well as the usual six airbags, ABS and traction and stability controls, even the base model 2 has city auto emergency braking and Mazda's G-Vectoring technology.

The 2 scored five ANCAP stars in September 2015, the highest available.

The 1.5-litre petrol four is slightly down on power compared to the rest of the range, developing 79kW (-2kW) and 139Nm (-2Nm). There's also no stop-start (Mazda calls it i-Stop), so official combined cycle consumption is slightly higher for the manual at 5.4L/100km but the same for the auto at 4.9L/100km.
