The 2016 Mazda 2 was introduced in Malaysia only recently, whereby the B-segment car (available in sedan and hatchback body styles) gained the brand’s familiar LED headlamps and signature DRLs. While previously the colour options were limited to just four, it has now been expanded to eight.

That’s right, Smokey Rose Mica, Deep Crystal Blue Mica, Dynamic Blue Mica and Black Mica will now join Snowflake White Pearl, Aluminium Metallic, Metropolitan Grey and the brand’s trademark Soul Red as the 2’s colour options.

In terms of availability, the new colours are either already available here (in limited units) or will be on its way soon. The reasoning behind this is for Bermaz to test market demand for the new colours. Pricing wise, the new colours sees no change to the 2’s price tag, which is RM90,766.30 (OTR without insurance). Those opting for the Soul Red option will still need to top up an additional RM530.

Aside from the new colour options, the 2 remains unchanged from before. Under the hood, you’ll find a 1.5 litre SkyActiv-G four-cylinder direct injected petrol engine (with i-Stop), providing 114 hp at 6,000 rpm and 148 Nm at 4,000 rpm. A six-speed SkyActiv-Drive automatic transmission is mated to the mill.

Inside, there are still leather seats, single zone automatic climate control, manually adjustable seats, paddle shifters and heads-up display. Infotainment comes in the form of the MZD Connect system, with six speakers, a seven-inch touchscreen and Commander Control knob/buttons. The system can be upgraded with a navigation function a cost option (RM1,270).

Keep in mind that the photos seen here are for illustration purposes only, hence the Demio nameplate and off-coloured whiskers on the car’s grille (ours matches the body colour). We’ll try to get live photos of the 2 in all its new shades in the future. So, if you’re interested to purchase a Mazda 2, which colour do you think appeals to you most?
