The upcoming 2015 Mazda2 has made its way onto the internet before its official debut at the upcoming Paris Motor Show in October.
Seen with Demio plates, which is the car’s name in worldwide markets, the new Mazda2 managed to keep its styling close to the Hazumi concept which debuted last year in Geneva. The all-new nose brings the Mazda2 in line with the rest of the company’s lineup, finally adopting the brand’s Kodo design language.
Mazda’s full suite of SkyActiv technology is in use on the Mazda2, which means the car will be lighter than the previous generation. For power, the new car will use a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that makes around 100 hp and 98 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual should remain as the base option, though a CVT will now be available as the automatic transmission.
An all-new Mazda2 is nearly ready to be shown to the world, but pictures of the interior have slipped out a little early.
Thanks to Drive.au, who got to drive an early prototype of the new car we can show you these photos of the upcoming Mazda2′s insides. Many of the style cues have been taken straight from the new Mazda3, including the ‘floating’ touch screen, three-spoke steering wheel and gauge cluster. The center stack and the air vents appear to be slightly modified though, compared to the 3. Mazda’s HMI infotainment setup also appears to be in use on this car.
“We’re excited to make this official, to announce that the newest member of the MX-5 Miata family will be arriving soon,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO, Mazda North American Operations (MNAO). “Along with our colleagues around the world, we continue to celebrate the MX-5′s 25th anniversary and look forward to sharing even more news in the near future.”
Mazda will in fact host several simultaneous global reveals of the car, with debuts also occurring in Japan and Spain.
In March, Mazda revealed the car’s new Skyactiv chassis at the New York Auto Show, announcing that the 2016 MX-5 will be both smaller and lighter than the current model. The car will weigh at least 220 lbs less than the current car.
