A brand new Mazda 2 supermini may be set to arrive in 2015, but the Japanese car manufacturer has given the current car a final lease of life with the introduction of Black Edition and White Edition models. These run-out versions provide an added dose of style along with extra equipment to keep the 2 up to date against newer rivals.

Launched at the turn of the year, both of these colour-coded new models are available for £12,145 and feature updated interior and exterior styling – including the option of stripes – to differentiate them from other 2s. Both of these special edition cars feature a motorsport-inspired diffuser-style rear bumper, along with tinted windows and dark grey 15-inch alloys for a sportier look. Buyers after a bolder aesthetic can specify bonnet and roof stripes at no extra cost.

The Black and White Editions also have updated interior designs with body-colour trim and black upholstery with red piping. Featuring on the list of standard equipment are air conditioning, electric-folding wing mirrors and a CD player along with Bluetooth (a no-cost option) and USB connections, allowing drivers to connect their phone to the car.

Under the bonnet is a 74bhp 1.3-litre petrol motor, connected to a five-speed manual gearbox. Acceleration is leisurely with the 2 making its way from a standstill to 62mph in 14.9 seconds, though claimed fuel economy is more impressive at 56.5mpg.

Alongside the special edition models, Mazda is also offering nought per cent finance on the rest of the 2 range, with zero deposit personal contract purchase schemes. Buyers also have the choice of a zero per cent ‘conditional sale’ finance scheme, for those who can afford to pay 30 per cent of the price up front. Both finance offers run until the end of March.
