Stylish Exterior Enhancements
Across all models, the 2023 Mazda2 showcases an upgraded grille design, with the signature Mazda wing surround now placed behind the number plate, emphasizing the sportier lower bumper trim and shape. The wing grille surround cuts into the leading edge of the headlight, enhancing the sharpness of the design. Notably, color accent tabs add asymmetrical flair to the front grille and rear bumper, creating a captivating visual impact.
Centre-Line and Exclusive-Line: Unmistakable Appeal
The Centre-Line and Exclusive-Line trims feature a striking front-end design, characterized by a large colored panel across the lower section of the grille. The new front bumper design, combined with a prominent lower grille section and gloss black signature wing surround, enhances the 2023 Mazda2’s unmistakable new look. Customers can choose from a range of color combinations, with body-colored grille panels for Soul Red Crystal, Snowflake White, Platinum Quartz, Polymetal Grey, and the new Air Stream Blue. For Machine Grey, Deep Crystal Blue, Ceramic Metallic, and the new Aero Grey color, the grille panel is Jet Black, providing an attractive contrast. Jet Black cars feature a matching Jet Black grille panel.
Inside the Centre-Line and Exclusive-Line trims, a similar color combination style is present. Mint-colored decorative dash panels are featured in Air Stream Blue and Ceramic Metallic cars, while Soul Red Crystal, Snowflake White, Platinum Quartz, and Polymetal Grey cars sport pure white dash panels. Other exterior colors are paired with a sleek mirror black finish.
Homura and Homura Aka: Sporty Appeal

Leveraging the well-proportioned Kodo design and sleeker bumper design, these trims boast a black honeycomb grille with a red accent tab, complemented by gloss black door mirrors and 16-inch black alloy wheels.

Enhanced Features: Premium Standard Specifications
As always, the Mazda2 impresses with its excellent standard specifications across the entire range. Navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, cruise control, integrated Bluetooth, and climate control are all included. The 2023 Mazda2 range offers a variety of models, starting with the 75ps Centre-Line. The Centre-Line model is also available with the 90ps output, while the Homura and Exclusive-Line trims come with the 90ps version. The Exclusive-Line trim offers a choice between automatic and manual transmission. Topping off the range, the Homura Aka offers a choice of 90 or 115ps outputs, available with both automatic and manual gearbox. Except for the 75ps Centre-Line, all manual versions feature Mazda’s M Hybrid mild-hybrid system, denoted by the e-Skyactiv G badge.
Efficiency and Performance: Uncompromised
Building on the efficiency improvements introduced in 2022, the 2023 Mazda2 retains the upgraded 1.5-liter petrol engine. The compression ratio has been increased from 13.1 to 15.1, and the exhaust now features a 4-2-1 manifold, resulting in reduced CO2 emissions by 11-14g/km, depending on the output and transmission. For example, the 90ps Homura manual emits 107g/km, compared to the 120g/km of the equivalent pre-2022 model 90ps Sport.
Superior Handling and Control
The 2023 Mazda2’s dynamic set-up remains unchanged, as it already delivers superb handling. All models in the range feature Mazda’s G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus), an evolved version of the GVC system. In addition to the engine control, GVC Plus applies direct yaw movement control using the brakes, further enhancing stability and control.
Jeremy Thomson, Managing Director of Mazda UK, commented on the 2023 Mazda2, stating, “The Mazda2 may be our smallest car, but it embodies the same values of style, driver involvement, and quality that define all our vehicles. With increased model grades, expanded color choices, and refreshed styling, the 2023 Mazda2 offers our customers more individuality.” Thomson added, “Alongside the Mazda2 Hybrid, we are providing customers in the supermini segment with a choice of two distinct models, catering to their unique needs.”
