Default Mazda 2 Spied


The 2008 Mazda 2 has been spied in testing as rumors of a State-side release continue. The Mazda 2, known in some markets as the Demio, is currently only available in Europe and Asia where it has been a success for Mazda. The B Class car has been the topic of much speculation after it showed up at the 2004 NAIAS in Detroit. The five-passanger compact is rumored to be arriving in the United States for the 2008 model year. More details are expected soon

It's definitely a Subaru.

Left lane isn't linking them for some reason, but you can copy the address and look in a different window.

Before anyone complains about how crappy the interior looks, those are prototype pieces without texturing.

Probably has to do with emissions testing.

They should at least try making it more interesting.

Mazda 2 @ 2007 Geneva Show



Press Release:
Quote:
Mazda Motor Corporation will showcase the world premiere of the all-new Mazda2 (known as the Mazda Demio in Japan) at the 77th annual Geneva International Motor Show to be held from Tuesday, 6 March through Sunday, 18 March 2007. Officially titled the Salon International de l’Auto de Genčve, the Geneva Motor show press days are March 6 and 7, and the public days are March 8-18. Mazda will hold its press conference on Tuesday, 6 March at 14:15 CET.

The all-new Mazda2 is more than just a model freshening of the current Mazda2. In 2002, the Mazda6 heralded the arrival of Mazda’s new generation of Zoom-Zoom vehicles, and now the Mazda2 becomes the first of these to evolve to the next level. As such, the new Mazda2 represents the progression of Mazda’s Zoom-Zoom brand promise.

As long as it is not underpowered and gets 35+mpg Mazda might have a bigger hit than the 3.
VW should be worried of the possibility of a MazdaSpeed2, bye bye GTI.

That's a cool looking little runabout. If it's cheap enough that could be a hit.

That looks a hell of a lot like the next-gen Fiesta.

Is Mazda becoming Ford's Saturn?

that thing has so much performance/handling potential, esp with the front and rear overhangs being near nonexistant.

If they did that all you'd here is "blah, blah, Torque steer, blah blah blah . . . "

I like it and I'd downsize from my 3 especially if it had a good size engine.
