Mazda Australia has announced the addition of USB connectivity across its entire Mazda2 range at no extra cost to buyers.
The addition of USB connectivity means Mazda2 drivers and passengers can now easily connect iPods, iPhones or other USB-based music devices via a direct input located in the centre console.
The system will provide improved functionality as music selection can be directly controlled through the Mazda2’s steering wheel-mounted audio controls. Employing the USB connection will allow information such as artist, song and album names to appear on the multi-information display when available from the source. The USB connection supports MP3, WMA and AAC file formats.
The inclusion of USB connectivity joins two other changes to Mazda's city car range: the silver centre cap on Maxx and Genki alloy wheels has been swapped for one finished in black, in line with changes recently introduced on the Mazda CX-5 SUV, and a new Stormy Blue Mica exterior colour replaces Burgundy Red Mica.
The range is priced from $15,790 for the five-speed manual Mazda2 Neo to $22,145 for the four-speed automatic Mazda2 Genki.
