Mazda2 special editions provide swan song for old model

Mazda has released Black and White Editions of its outgoing Mazda2 supermini-sized hatchback. As the names suggest, the two run-out models come in a choice of Jet Black Mica or Cyrstal White Pearlescent paintwork and include a good level of standard equipment in the price, which kicks off from £12,145.

Power comes from a 74bhp 1.3-litre petrol engine that has been mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. It manages to emit 115g/km of CO2, but is still able to return 56.5mpg on the combined cycle.

Both variants come with 15-inch ‘Drak Gray’ alloy wheels as standard. In addition, they feature power folding and heated door mirrors, rear privacy glass, a diffuser-style rear bumper, jet black rear spoiler and special edition badging.

Inside, they get body colour accents, black cloth upholstery with red piping and glossy Dark Grey trim highlights. They also feature air conditioning, CD player with USB and AUX connection and, as a no cost option, Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel mounted audio controls.

Amongst the optional equipment are colour-coded bonnet and roof stripes.

All Mazda2 models are currently available with 0% APR if bought on the company’s Personal Contract Purchase scheme. Mazda has also increased its deposit contribution from £500 to £750.

This version of the Mazda2 will be replaced by an all-new model which will be going on sale in the UK later this year.
