Here is a sneak peek at the 2016 Mazda2 ahead of its official debut.
ALL-NEW 2016 MAZDA2 MAKES GLOBAL DEBUT
IRVINE, Calif. (July 16, 2014) ? The all-new 2016 Mazda2 was today
unveiled in Japan by Mazda Motor Corporation (MC). Mazda's sub-compact
entry, known as the Demio in Japan, receives its first complete
redesign since its global third-generation launch seven years ago.
Based on the HAZUMI concept, which debuted at the Geneva Auto Show in
March, this all-new fourth-generation vehicle is outfitted with the
full suite of SKYACTIV® technologies and "KODO: Soul of
Motion" design language to match its larger siblings the Mazda3
compact car, Mazda6 mid-size sedan and CX-5 compact SUV. The 2016
Mazda2 also features additional in-vehicle and safety technology with
MAZDA CONNECT? and i-ACTIVSENSE, respectively.
The 2016 Mazda2 will begin rolling out to global markets from Japan's
Hofu plant starting this fall. For the Japanese market, the vehicle
will be available with a SKYACTIV-G 1.3-liter gasoline engine and a
SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter clean diesel engine. More information on
specifications for other global markets, including the U.S., will be
released closer to its on-sale date in those respective regions.
With more than 2.4 million units sold worldwide, the Mazda2 is the
best-selling vehicle in Japan. First introduced in 1996, a second
generation followed in 2002 with the third-generation model being
released in 2007. The Mazda2 was not available in the U.S. market
until the third generation as a 2011 model.
