Photo Feature: Mazda2 gets upgrade that includes torque pedaling and automatic brake

The Mazda2 compact was released in 2014 and underwent minor changes in 2015. This December, it’s getting its second round of changes.

The major changes this time around are that all models are getting its torque pedaling mechanism as a standard feature and the electric power steering and suspension are getting changed to make the ride more comfortable. Another change is that the diesel version’s noise and vibrations have been reduced.

Further changes include the addition of Adaptive LED Headlights (ALH), which choose the appropriate light distribution for the high beams. Another addition is the SCBSR mechanism, which helps to prevent collisions when backing up, Mazda Radar Cruise Control (MRCC), which enables automatic following in a range of around 30 to 100km/h, and Smart Brake Support (SBS) for avoiding or minimizing collisions at mid or high speeds.

For the exterior, there are the new Machine Grey Premium Metallic and Deep Crimson Mica colors as well as the addition of Ethanol Blue Mica and Sonic Silver Metallic. There have been changes to the grille garnish and the addition of plating bezels.
