Mazda has released additional information and new photos depicting the Euro-spec Mazda2.
Set to go on sale in Europe in early 2015, the model will be offered with four Euro6-compliant engines. On the petrol side the car will be available with three 1.5-liter units that produce 75 PS (55 kW), 90 PS (66 kW) and 115 PS (85 kW) respectively. The most powerful of them is equipped with the i-ELOOP regenerative braking system and is connected to a six-speed manual transmission. This enables the model to return 4.9 L/100km (57.6 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 115 g/km.
The entry-level model will be powered by a 1.5-liter SKYACTIV-G petrol engine with 75 PS (55 kW) and 135 Nm (99 lb-ft) of torque. Average fuel consumption is rated at 4.7 L/100km (60.1 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 110 g/km.
The diesel Mazda2 has a 1.5-liter engine that uses a single turbocharger with variable turbine geometry. It produces 105 PS (77 kW) and 220 Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque and consumes 3.4 L/100km (83 mpg UK) when paired to a six-speed manual. With this unit the city vehicle will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 10.1 seconds and will reach a top speed of 178 km/h (110 mph).
