With Nigerian market not considered as choice destination for the brand, not as a result of lack of demand for it, but due to a serious franchisee, authorities at Mazda has extended its Mazda2 model line-up with seventh derivative, the Mazda2 Individual Plus 1.5-liters Auto, that brings a number of new features to the range.
But they come at a cost: While the prices of the rest of the range have risen by an average of less than 2.2 percent, the new Individual Plus is more expensive than the previous top petrol model, and the price of the diesel specification which is now more expensive by 11.4 percent. New Mazda2 Individual Plus comes with 16 inch alloys and shark fin antenna.
The two top Mazda variants now boast full leather seats, a head up display for current speed, next turn directions from the satellite navigation and safety alerts, rear parking sensors, a shark fin antenna, lane departure warning, and side and curtain airbags, while the Hazumi diesel variant is also comes with blind spot monitoring.
That is not all as there is more in the kitty. All Mazda2 derivatives except the base Active model now have LED fog-lights and cruise control, and the automatics now come with paddle shifters.
Still the same are the petrol models’ 1.5 litres, 82kW and 145Nm, and the 77kW and 250Nm outputs of the 1.5 turbo-diesel four, as well as the three-year, unlimited distance warranty and three-year service plan across the range.
