While we are all waiting to see the new Mazda MX-5, set to be revealed in a couple of months, the Japanese car maker went ahead and unveiled an all-new version of the Mazda2 supermini. This car shows that KODO design language, even on small scales, has a lot to say.
Being a KODO car, the 2015 Mazda2, known as the Demio in Japan, looks remarkably similar at the front to its siblings – Mazda CX-5, Mazda6 and Mazda3. The headlights and grille combo is pretty much the same on all four vehicles, which kind of makes it hard telling them apart.
2015 Mazda2 also appears to be going through a growth spurt, as it is visibly bigger than its predecessor, which is just as well because it comes with lots more technology features as well as new engines.
The all-new Mazda2 will premiere in Europe with a brand-new small displacement clean diesel engine, the SKYACTIV-D 1.5, as well as different power versions of the petrol SKYACTIV-G 1.5. The car also benefits from SKYACTIV body, chassis, and manual and automatic transmissions.
The bigger size of the new Mazda2 means a more spacious interior. Mazda has further enhanced this interior by fitting the MZD Connect in-car connectivity system, and a range of i-ACTIVSENSE active safety features.
