Get a Sneak Peek of the 2015 Mazda2

February 22nd, 2014 by

Silver Mazda hatchbackThe Mazda2 has established its reputation as one of the most reliable and sporty subcompact vehicles on the road these days. This model has been a hit with drivers, but it has been a while since it underwent a major overhaul. Mazda is well aware of this, and there is reason to think the 2015 model will be completely redesigned. Mazda is about to release its Hazumi concept car at the Geneva Auto Show, and many experts believe that its innovations will be major features of the new Mazda2. Details are still forthcoming, but here is what we know about the Hazumi concept, and possibly the 2015 Mazda2.

Kodo Design Language

Mazda has pioneered the art of carrying design concepts across models, regardless of their size or price point. This commitment to design means all Mazda vehicles share the same singular styling vision. It also allows Mazda engineers to focus more on innovation and less on looks. From the pictures that we have seen of the Hazumi concept, Mazda remains committed to the Kodo design that has been a feature of some of its most popular cars in recent years. That means the new Mazda2 should be a great looking car.

Sporty Performance

Hazumi means “bound” or “spring up” in Japanese. The past models of the Mazda2 have been surprisingly sporty for a subcompact car, but if the Hazumi concept is any indication, the new 2015 Mazda2 will takes its singular driving experience to the next level. Logic suggests that Mazda chose the name of its subcompact concept because the company was excited about the performance of its most popular subcompact production vehicle. We don’t have numbers yet, but expect the engine in the new Mazda2 to really stand out.

Fuel Efficient Upgrades

In addition to the Hazumi Concept Car, Mazda is also debuting its 1.5-liter Skyactiv-D diesel engine at the Geneva Auto Show. This ultra-efficient engine has been in the works for a while, and the fact that Mazda is finally rolling it out means that we could see it in production soon. We can’t promise that it will be a feature of the new Mazda2, but it wouldn’t surprise us. After the Geneva Auto Show, we should know more details about Mazda’s plans for this exciting engine technology.
