The Mazda 2 Red Edition is a new, limited-run version of Mazda’s smallest model that will be available to order from 1 September.

The Red Edition, which is based on the 89bhp SE-L Nav, offers styling adjustments both inside and out for an extra £500 over the base model, which starts at £14,995. Only 400 Red Editions will be built.

Contrary to its name, the Red Edition only comes in Snowflake White Pearlescent or Black Mica paint, with Soul Red accents on the rear spoiler and lower bumper.

Buyers can add optional Dark Gunmental 15in alloy wheel for an additional £300.

Inside there are red cloth seats, red centre console parts and red door trim inserts, as well as white and red accents across the dashboard. 

Under the bonnet there are no changes from the base model, so the Red Edition gets the same 89bhp Skyactiv-G petrol engine.

The regular Mazda 2 rivals the Ford Fiesta, so the 2 Red Edition is a natural rival to Fiesta White and Black Editions, which also build on the entry-level Fiesta by adding more standard kit.

The Mazda 2
The Mazda 2 name dates back to 2002. This latest version showcases the firm's Skyactiv technology and 'Kodo' styling

Mazda's Skyactiv tech revolution transforms its cheapest model into a supermini capable of eclipsing many of its more established European rivals

The Red edition that doesn't come in red...

...but does come with the 2's usual small ugly alloys and a hideous interior. And all for an extra £500. Who wouldn't want one?? Utter marketing nonsense at its best!

Only 400 Red Editions will be built.

That's 400 too many, either way the inside would quickly fill-up with vomit due to ill judged trim colour.
