Mazda looks boost sales of its small car with the addition of extra gear as standard.

The Japanese carmaker has a number of changes to its lower-grade small car models, changing the names in the process.

Entry-level Neo Sport – formerly known as Neo – gain an upgraded infotainment system with a DAB+ digital radio, two extra speakers and a reversing camera as standard.

The extra equipment comes at no extra cost with an six-speed manual Neo Sport priced from $20,490 before on-road costs. An automatic transmission adds $2000.

Mazda has also tweaked the Maxx model, which is now referred to as the Maxx Sport, and gains auto wipers and headlights, dual-zone air-conditioning and an electric park brake.

The Maxx Sport costs the same as the Maxx it replaces at $22,490 in six-speed manual guise. Again a six-speed auto transmission costs $2000 more.

Lastly, Mazda has added keyless entry to the mid-tier Touring models. Touring models' pricing remains unchanged, starting at $24,490 for the manual.

SP25, SP25 GT and SP25 Astina grades remain priced from $24,990, $29,990 and $33,490 respectively.

All models come with autonomous emergency braking as standard.
