A revised version of the Mazda2 Hybrid small car has been announced.

The model is closely based on the Toyota Yaris, but is being updated to further differentiate it from that model with an updated, Mazda-specific front bumper and grille design and rear tailgate garnish.

The updated Mazda2 Hybrid will arrive in the UK from March next year, and will continue to be sold alongside the Mazda-original, petrol-powered Mazda2.

Full UK specs and prices are yet to be announced, although Mazda says it will be offered with a choice of Centre-Line, Exclusive-Line, Homura, and Homura Plus equipment grades.
