2020 Mazda2 Sedan Facelift Debuts In Mexico With Hatch-Inspired Updates

Small passenger cars make up more than half of Mexico’s car market so it’s little wonder that Mazda has chosen this market to debut the facelifted Mazda2 Sedan – another obvious reason is the fact that the subcompact sedan is made in Mexico.

As expected, the four-door model gains similar updates as the five-door Mazda2 hatchback that debuted in Japan earlier this year. The most obvious styling changes are at the front, where the Mazda2 Sedan gains a fresh grille with a three-dimensional pattern, new headlights, and a restyled bumper incorporating narrow chrome strips at the bottom.

At the rear, the taillights carry over but the reflectors are now placed lower and feature a decorative strip between them. The budget sedan also adds a lip spoiler and new 15- and 16-inch wheels. Changes made to the interior include new front seats and a Mazda Connect infotainment system which now offers standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

The facelifted Mazda2 Sedan also becomes slighlty more powerful in Mexico as the Skyactiv-G 1.5 four-cylinder gasoline engine now makes 109 HP (110 PS) at 6,000 rpm (instead of 106 HP / 107 PS in the outgoing model). The peak torque also grows from 140 Nm (103 lb-ft) to 141 Nm (104 lb-ft) at 4,000 rpm.

The engine continues to be linked with six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Interestingly, the 2020 Mazda2 Sedan sticks with the older G-Vectoring Control instead of upgrading to the improved G-Vectoring Control Plus like the hatchback.

Prices for the facelifted Mazda2 Sedan start from 259,900 Mexican pesos, which equates to $13,415 at the current exchange rates. The model is expected to arrive in other markets as well, excluding Japan and Europe. It remains to be seen whether the updates will make it to United States, where the Mazda2 Sedan is only sold as a rebadged Toyota Yaris.
