Article by Christian Andrei, on November 20, 2010

There is a new automatic model for the Mazda2 named the “Activematic.” This version is powered by a 1.5-liter petrol engine that is mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.

This enables the Activematic to return 44.8mpg and emit 146g/km CO2. Accelerating from zero to 60mph is accomplished in 11.9sec and the vehicle can reach a top speed of 105mph.

In addition, Mazda announced the 2 ‘Tamura’, which features16-inch alloy wheels. Its sports styling kit consists of side skirts, rear spoiler and four-lamp headlights. The Activematic has a starting price of £12,060 while the 1.3-liter Tamura is priced from £11,520.

The entry-level 1.3-litre TS has a starting price of £9,995 and the top-of-the-line 1.6-litre diesel sport is priced from £14,455. It boasts a fuel economy rating of 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions level of 110g/km.

While the Mazda2 retains the original Zoom-Zoom driver appeal, our engineers have responded to media and owner feedback about our most popular model which accounts for 25 percent of Mazda sales in Britain. They have developed a revised rear suspension which provides superior ride comfort while also making the rear of the car feel more planted on the tarmac, even on the bumpiest of UK roads,” comments Mark Cameron, Sales Director, Mazda UK.
