Available in two specification levels - Neo and Maxx - each mirrors the specification of their 5-door siblings. All Mazda2s are powered by the same 76kW, 1.5-litre, MZR four-cylinder petrol engine. Five-speed manual transmission is standard, with a four-speed automatic optional. Standard (Neo) features include ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Emergency Brake Assist, remote locking, driver's seat height adjustment, a centre rear headrest and an AUX jack that enables any MP3 player (including iPod) to be played through the car's audio system. Air con, power windows & mirrors and an MP3 compatible CD player with four speakers are also part of the package. The Mazda2 3-door Maxx adds 15-inch alloy wheels, 6-disc CD player, steering wheel-mounted audio controls and a rear spoiler. The Maxx 3-door is priced from $17,960. Fuel economy is an impressive 6.4L/100km on the ADR 81/01 cycle. Equipped with the 4-speed automatic, the Mazda2 sips just 6.8L/100km.
