2015 Mazda2 Interior Revealed in New Photos

  • 2015 Mazda2 interior revealed ahead of production
  • Interior uses upscale, modern look borrowed from Mazda6 and Mazda3
  • Next-generation Mazda2 also likely to boast long list of new technology

New pictures show the production-ready interior of Mazda’s next-generation Mazda2 hatchback, which is slated to replace the current Mazda2 early next year. In the photos, influence from the brand’s larger Mazda3 and Mazda6 models can clearly be seen in several key areas, giving the interior a more upscale look.

One major difference between the interior of today’s Mazda2 and the new model’s cabin is clearly seen in the center control stack. While today’s center stack features a gap between the gear lever and the center console, the new Mazda2 offers a flowing new design that places more of an emphasis on sport or luxury instead of economy-car style.

The next-generation Mazda2 will also make several other key upgrades, including higher-quality climate controls and a new infotainment screen that sticks up from the dashboard. While the screen is undoubtedly optional, drivers who choose it can control their infotainment options through a small silver wheel located in the center console. That’s big news for the Mazda2, which currently lacks any infotainment or navigation capabilities.

We suspect, though, that the latest Mazda2 will boast far more technology than just infotainment and navigation when it reaches dealers in early 2015. Other upgrades are likely to include a wide range of new technologies, including safety items, such as lane-departure warning. Although Mazda hasn’t confirmed the upgraded tech, it’s highly likely given the wide range of upscale gadgets available on the brand’s Mazda3 and Mazda6 models.

Mazda also hasn’t confirmed the powertrain for its upcoming Mazda2, though we suspect that it will use a 1.5-liter SKYACTIV 4-cylinder engine. Although power will stay around 100 horses, we expect a slight jump in torque for better acceleration. We also expect better gas mileage, thanks to a new continuously variable automatic transmission that will replace last year’s 4-speed.

What it means to you: The 2015 Mazda2 will offer an impressive new interior and a litany of new features when it reaches dealers early next year.
