The Mazda2 has been on the market in its current form for seven years now, but that is soon about to change. Mazda has finally revealed its successor and announced its unveiling would occur at the Paris Motor Show this October.
The new 2016 Mazda2 takes heavily after the Hazumi concept the automaker had previously unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, including the wheel design and the sharply creased front end. This brings it more in line with the rest of the Mazda lineup, like the Mazda3, Mazda6, and CX-5, which are all characterized by the KODO “soul of motion” design language.
Details are so far limited, though we do know engine options will center around a 1.5-liter four-cylinder in both gasoline and diesel versions. It’s unlikely the diesel will make its way to the United States, but there are rumors of a PHEV model. It’ll also include Mazda’s MZD connectivity suite and i-Activesense safety technology.
