Who are Mazda?
This Japanese company started life in Hiroshima in 1920. These days its biggest market is in the US, but sporty models like the MX-5 have also won it a serious fan club over here in the UK.
The Mazda2 is the smallest car in the Mazda family (confusingly, there’s no Mazda1). It’s a sporty hatchback that’s designed to turn heads, with looks that make it stand out on the street.
Strong on substance as well as style, the Mazda2 has a great record for safety and reliability. It’s won a string of international awards and frequently triumphs over its competitors in independent surveys.
Safety-wise, you’ve got a whole package of features, which includes six airbags, hill hold control and tyre monitoring. If the car detects skidding it will take control – great for wet UK roads. The idea is to give you confidence, so you can take more pleasure in driving.
You’ll also find a great infotainment system, with a seven-inch touchscreen, as well as Mazda’s own SKYACTIV technology.
Frequently asked questions
How much does a Mazda2 cost to insure?
Our customers pay an average £662.01** to insure their Mazda 2 S.
But you may find you’re quoted a different price. That’s because insurance providers take into account all sorts of factors when calculating your quote – not least your age, driving experience and where you live. They’ll also want to know your annual mileage and even what you do for a living.
Another thing they’ll consider is which insurance group your car belongs to. There are 50 insurance groups. These are numbered 1-50, and the lower your insurance group number, the lower your insurance should be.
Mazda2 insurance groups vary, depending on the model, but they’re comfortably at the lower end of the scale. Which could be great news for your budget.

Can I cut the cost of my Mazda2 insurance?
There are a handful of ways that could help you cut your insurance costs. One is to make the most of your no claims bonus. If you’re young or haven’t had time to build one yet, a telematics policy could be right for you.
