Mazda has extended its supermini range with the launch of the Mazda2 Red Edition.
Arriving in dealerships from the 1 September, 2016, and limited to just 400 cars, the Red Edition’s small volumes make it an exclusive supermini choice that stands out from the crowd.
Boasting high levels of standard specification and styling enhancements, the Red Edition’s stand-out appearance complements the Mazda2’s KODO: Soul of Motion design and sporty proportions.
Offered with a choice of free-of-charge Snowflake White Pearlescent or Black Mica paint, its design cues include Soul Red accents on the wing mirror covers, rear spoiler and rear underskirt, while the bespoke look can be further heightened with optional £300 Dark Gunmetal 15-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the redden theme continues with red cloth seat trim, red knee pad inserts and red door trim inserts, while a red and white d?cor panel on the dash adds a large sweep of colour across the dash.
Based on the 90ps SE-L Nav, the Red Edition shares the same core values of driving fun, sharp looks, quality, safety and affordability found across the entire Mazda2 range. Featuring the signature wing front grille and predatory headlamp styling, the supermini features advanced chassis architecture, while its dynamic, muscular, cab-rearward proportions incorporate a long wheelbase with small overhangs to maximise interior space.
On-board, the seven-inch touch-screen display combines with Mazda’s rotary Multimedia Commander to create an enhanced human-machine interface (HMI) offering extremely safe, intuitive interactivity and infotainment control.
Powered by the efficient 90ps SKYACTIV-G petrol engine, the Red Edition offers customers the ideal balance of lively, agile performance and highly-competitive fuel economy, while emitting just 105gkm of CO2 emissions.
'Thanks to its combination of fun-to-drive handling, stylish looks and generous equipment, the Mazda2 is already winning over UK supermini buyers and our latest special edition model offers stand-out looks and a bold cabin for those customers who want to make a statement with their car,' said Peter Allibon, sales director of Mazda Motors UK.
'With free-of-charge metallic paint and its striking styling enhancements, the Mazda2 Red Edition is a colourful addition to the range, that I’m sure will be popular with younger buyers.'
