Mazda has shown off its new look Mazda2 light sedan in overseas markets ahead of an expected Australian showroom arrival in early 2020.
A different front grille with a revised pattern is also adopted for the 2020 model year, while inside, the Mazda2 sedan gains an Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-compatible multimedia system and new front seats.
In terms of powertrain, the Mazda2 sedan retains the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine as before that produces up to 81kW of power and 141Nm of torque.
The lower tune 79kW/139Nm engine found in the entry-level Neo grade is expected to be dropped, similar to the discontinuation of the same grade for the five-door hatchback in a bid to move the nameplate upmarket and add in higher levels of standard safety equipment.
As such, expect to see the entry point to the Mazda2 sedan move up from the existing $15,570 before on-road costs Neo.
