All-New Mazda 2 Breaks Cover

Reveal

World debut set for 2014 Paris Motor Show.

It was one of the surprise packages at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, and for the most part the all-new Mazda 2 has been strongly influenced by the well-received Hazumi concept. Aside from the new headlights, door handles and wing mirrors, the new 2 is a carbon-copy of the concept, with the production model set to debut in Paris this October. Following the CX-5, 6, and 3, the next-gen 2 is the latest Mazda model to adopt the carmaker’s SkyActiv technology and Kodo design language.

Official details are limited, but Mazda has confirmed the new 2 will be its first model powered by the new 1.5-liter turbodiesel, while the 1.5-liter gasoline engine from the 3 will also be on offer in the 2 in various states of tune mated to six-speed automatic and manual boxes. Dubbed the Demio in Japan, production of the JDM-spec model has already begun, with models to be rolled out locally from the fall. Built on a new platform that will be utilized by a new Toyota supermini in North America, the Mazda 2 will be one of the lightest cars in its segment. The interior is also said to be “remarkably spacious” and more “refined” influenced by the 3 with high-quality materials, and the firm’s new MZD Connect in-car connectivity system.
