Northwood Mazda celebrates ‘Best Supermini’ win for Mazda2
The all-new Mazda2 has been recognised with another title win having been named ‘Best Supermini’ in the 22nd annual Green Apple Awards. Isle of Wight dealer Northwood Mazda welcomed the news that journalists from the Midland Group of Motoring Writers (MGMW) gave top honours in the supermini category to the 1.5-litre diesel SKYACTIV-D Mazda2 at the awards ceremony held at the Houses of Parliament.
Green Apple Awards automotive judge, and Midland Group of Motoring Writer’s Chairman Ian Donaldson said, “the Mazda2 sets an engaging, practical and efficient benchmark in the class, making economy enjoyable while also providing sensible running costs. Mazda shows that using a larger engine than the competition and applying clever technology can provide fine economy and a car that’s good to drive.”
Northwood Mazda Dealer Principal Graham Vanassche said. “The Mazda2 has been a popular choice for our customers thanks to its uncompromising performance and fuel efficiency. The fact that the Green Apple Awards has recognised the car as the best in its class reinforces the quality of this model and its excellent fuel economy, which enables our customers to achieve excellent savings.”
Having already claimed the Car Dealer Magazine Car of the Year Award earlier this year, the Green Apple Award’s acknowledgment of the all-new Mazda2’s efficiency and performance comes on the back of the 105ps SKYACTIV-D Mazda2 exceling in the recent MPG Marathon. Here it recorded an average fuel consumption of 103.42mpg – an impressive 24.45 per cent better than the official combined economy.
The Mazda2 is equipped with Mazda’s i-stop system, which delivers the world’s fastest restarts on a diesel engine. At the same time Mazda’s latest generation small diesel impresses with its combination of refinement, throttle response and performance.
