The Mazda 2 has sold almost 2.5 million units all over the world since 2002. Big changes in this five-door hatchback model have recently been announced. It will have a range of available engine options including a 1.5 liter diesel engine, identified as one of the Mazda SKYACTIV engines. The new Mazda 2 now shares some similarities with the Mazda 3. In fact, if you were just looking at the two from the front you might be hard pressed to tell which is which.
The Mazda now has the same large grille in the front, headlights with an angular touch, and a sloping front end. Now more on the engine choices. In Japan there will be 1.3 liter G-version as well as a 1.5 D-version putting 105 horsepower with 184 foot pounds of torque. There will also be some new safety features with Mazda’s i-ACTIVSENSE on board system. The 2016 Mazda 2 will start rolling of the assembly line around September, 2014. Photo Credit: MazdaUSA.com
