When they are looking at a Mazda 2 for sale, some drivers may avoid the GT variant automatically. After all, this is a small car and how could it possibly classed as a grand tourer? This is a fair point, but if you want an enhanced Mazda 2 driving experience, then the GT version could well be the right car to meet your needs.

At a Glance

The Mazda 2 GT tested here is the automatic version, and it’s the most premium version of this popular smaller car. The interior is smart, and the features are bang up to date. This car is fun to drive; the handling is precise and agile. The engine is extremely responsive and well matched to the automatic gearbox. Metallic paint is standard, there is a five year warranty and a 5 star ANCAP safety rating. Some drivers may be put off by the limited rear, and the tyre noise could be slightly less intrusive.

The Mazda 2 GT Specifications

This sits above the Mazda 2 Genki in the range, and the GT variant is designed to provide a more premium experience. However, the equipment is comparable to the Genki with features, such as: LED headlights and foglights, a HUD, satellite navigation, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, daytime running lights, rain sensing wipers, AEB (front and rear), a 7” MZD infotainment screen and 16” alloy wheels.

Where the GT does diverge is in some of the extra touches, the metallic paint included as standard is a very option in any car segment. In fact, only the Soul Red paints costs an additional $300, and every other colour is included in the list price. Also, the GT has an upgraded interior with black cloth upholstery and two tone seats. This soft touch material can also be found draped across the centre console, front door armrests, and the passenger side dashboard. The circular vents are surrounded with attractive red rings, and there are leather covers for the gear lever, steering wheel, and handbrake lever. All in all, this is a beautiful interior that compares favourably with the competition.

The Mazda MZD Connect System

The connectivity of cars in this segment is extremely important, and the MZD Connect systems delivers. The 7” display is intuitive to navigate with a rotary and joystick controller located on the centre console. There are plenty of shortcut buttons available to speed things along when navigating the menus. The touchscreen locks out when the Mazda 2 GT is on the move as a safety measure, but this prevents the front passenger from having access to those features. There are two USB sockets, an SD card reader an AUX port and a 12 volt socket available to connect devices.
