The new Mazda 2 Hybrid has been announced ahead of its official debut in spring 2022.
New Mazda 2 Hybrid design
If you think the new Mazda 2 Hybrid looks familiar, you’d be right. That’s because it’s basically a Toyota Yaris with new badges.
The exterior design is exactly the same as the Yaris. This means you get a huge grille that dominates the front end, along with some LED daytime running lights.
It’s the same story at the back. The Mazda 2 Hybrid gets the same angular tail lights and slightly flared wheel arches as the Yaris.
New Mazda 2 Hybrid engine
It’s wont come as a surprise that the new Mazda 2 Hybrid also has the same engine as the Toyota Yaris as well.
It has a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with a 59kW electric motor to produce 116Hp, and Mazda claims it will return over 70mpg.
No petrol or diesel engines will be offered, as this hybrid is going to be sold alongside the existing Mazda 2.
New Mazda 2 interior and infotainment
The interior of the new Mazda 2 Hybrid will bring about a sense of deja vu for anyone who’s been near a Toyota Yaris. It shares the same design and technology as the Yaris, meaning it’s logically laid out and well screwed together.
The Mazda 2 Hybrid also features a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as a digital drivers display.
New Mazda 2 Hybrid price and release date
The new Mazda 2 Hybrid will debut in spring of 2022, with it going on sale shortly after that.
There’s no word on pricing just yet, but you can expect it to be about in line with the Toyota Yaris. Somewhere around £20,000 is a safe bet.
