Mazda has updated its Mazda2 hatchback and introduced two new models, the GT and GT Sport, as part of a simplified model range.

All models feature new seat fabrics and a new steering wheel, while the side indicators have moved up into the door mirrors. The windscreen is now made from noise-insulating glass, and there has been extra soundproofing material fitted under the bonnet and inside the tailgate, parcel shelf and spare wheel well. Mazda has also made minor adjustments to the front suspension and the electric power steering.

All models above the entry-level 75hp now come with a seven-inch colour touchscreen display and infotainment system. This includes satnav, DAB digital radio and cruise control. New safety equipment for all 90hp and 115hp models includes autonomous emergency braking and lane keeping systems.

The new GT and GT Sport models sit at the top of the revised Mazda2 range. Two exclusive colours, Deep Crimson Mica and Eternal Blue Mica, are available, while LED headlights and LED daytime running lights are as standard. Also included are a rear spoiler, 16-inch alloy silver alloy wheels, black leather seats and a colour head-up display.

Entry-level 75hp models start from £12,695 with the entire Mazda2 range on sale from 1st June.
