Mazda2 stable unveils superminis

Mazda describes its two latest additions as "the supermini that will turn heads, combining colour and sporting flair".

The new 'Colour Edition' limited edition models bring enhanced visual appeal and upgraded standard equipment to the popular Mazda2 stable.

The Japanese manufacturer's Colour Edition models, costing from £11,745 on-the-road (OTR), feature much more than three external colours.

They also offer distinctively hued alloy wheels, internal colour-coded design cues and copious levels of equipment.

In showrooms today, the five-door hatchback models, entitled the 'Colour Edition' and 'Sport Colour Edition', will be restricted to 1,000 units each.

Fuelled by Mazda's 1.3-litre 75ps petrol engine, the Colour Edition has 11 pieces of additional equipment. These include a leather steering wheel with remote audio controls and Parrot Bluetooth handsfree.

The Sport Colour Edition comes with the more thrusting 1.3-litre 85ps engine and 11 extra equipment items above the Colour Edition model.

These include Sports headlamps and front fog lights, a new state-of-the-art 6.1-inch Mazda Navigation System with integrated Bluetooth and a trip computer.
