Mazda made official today the three-door version of the Mazda2 hatchback. The new Mazda2 three-door hatchback builds on the ﬁve- door hatchback’s exterior design – that evokes movement and athleticism using unique body panel articulation and compact dimensions – for even more sporty appeal.
Mazda2 three-door hatchback comes with the same petrol powertrain line-up as the ﬁve-door hatchback with engines that are lively and responsive, yet use low amounts of fuel and produce markedly less CO 2 than the engines of the outgoing model. The base MZR 1.3-litre aggregate has variable valve timing and comes in two power derivatives (depending on market): a Standard Power version producing 55 kW/75 PS and a High Power version producing 63 kW/86 PS. Both use just 5.4 litres of petrol per 100 km and produce a low 129 g/km of CO 2 emissions.
The largest petrol engine is an MZR 1.5-litre that produces 76 kW/103 PS of power, while using just 5.9 litres of fuel per 100 km and producing 140 g/km of CO . 2 Also onboard is a MZ-CD 1.4-litre common-rail turbo diesel, special for the European market, with high fuel efﬁciency and low emissions. It produces 50 kW/68 PS of maximum power at 4,000 rpm and 160 Nm of torque at a low 2,000 rpm for lively acceleration and driving fun. At the same time, it uses just 4.3 litres of fuel per 100 km (combined) and produces a very low 114 g/km of CO 2 for low operating costs, which is a vital criteria for B-car customers. All engines come with Mazda’s ﬁve-speed manual transmission with gear ratios that are between 3 to 10 percent higher than the outgoing ﬁve-speed, which contributes to lower fuel consumption.
