USB connectivity added to Mazda2

Audio upgrade: The top-selling Mazda2 now comes with USB connectivity and some other minor changes, including a new colour.

Mazda2 gets USB connectivity across the range to keep up with newer rivals

21 Aug 2012

MAZDA has added USB connectivity across its popular Mazda2 light-car range without increasing the prices.

Drivers will be able to connect their MP3 player via a USB input located in the centre console. The Mazda2 previously came only with a 3.5mm auxiliary outlet.

Steering wheel audio controls allow the driver to make a selection without having to take their hands off the wheel, and artist and track information will appear on the multi-information display in the centre stack.

Other models in the light-car segment that already offer USB connectivity across the range include the Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and Toyota Yaris.

On top of updating the functionality of the Mazda2’s audio, the Japanese car-maker has made a couple of other minor changes to the car.

Trainspotters will notice that the centre cap of the alloy wheels on the Maxx and Genki variants have changed from silver to black to match design cues from its CX-5 SUV sibling.

Mazda has also dropped the Burgundy Red Mica paint option in favour of a new Stormy Blue Mica colour.

As with all Mazda models, metallic and mica paint are no-cost options.

The current-generation Mazda2 is one of the oldest light cars on sale in Australia, having been released in early 2007.

A number of model upgrades have kept the car competitive in the ever-expanding light-car segment, most recently in October 2011, and last year it topped the segment with 17,501 sales for a 13.5 per cent share.

However, the newer Toyota Yaris has taken over this year with 11,354 sales to the end of July compared with 10,315 for the Mazda2.

Prices for the Mazda2 remain from $15,790 plus on-road costs for the entry-level Neo hatch to $20,495 for the up-spec Genki.
