2015 Mazda2 Euro Engine Lineup Detailed [114 New Photos]

Mazda has released full information and a new photo gallery of its fourth-generation Mazda2 supermini for European markets.

The all-new Mazda2 is available with four Euro6-compliant engines in Europe, three gasoline units and a diesel, all using the brand’s Skyactiv technology. The big news is the Skyactiv-D 1.5, a new small-displacement clean diesel that will be offered in Europe together with a six-speed manual gearbox.

Mazda says the 1.5-liter diesel unit shares the low compression, quiet low-knock operation and superior ignition and cold-start capabilities of its larger sibling, the Skyactiv-D 2.2. However, the smaller engine doesn’t feature a twin-turbo setup, but a single turbocharger with variable turbine geometry.

Fitted as standard with i-stop, Mazda’s idle-stop system, the 1.5-liter diesel averages just 3.4 l/100 km (69.2 mpg US) and emits 89 g/km of CO2. The unit produces 105PS (104hp) and 220Nm (162 lb-ft) of torque, allowing the Mazda2 to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62mph) in 10.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 178 km/h (110 mph).

All three petrol engines have a 1.5-liter displacement and produce 75PS (74hp), 90PS (89hp) and 115PS (113hp), respectively. The latter version is equipped with the i-ELOOP regenerative braking system that recycles kinetic energy to help power the car’s electronics resulting in around 5 percent better fuel economy – 4.9 l/100 km (48 mpg US) and 115 g/km of CO2.

Mated to a six-speed manual transmission, the 115PS version is the quickest in the lineup, sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph).
