New Mazda2 model shows its face

2008-01-24 07:12
The spunky Mazda2 makes its debut in three-door hatchback guise at the March Geneva Motor Show.

The three-door will, according to Mazda, share its overall dimensions and other features with the five-door model.

The choice of powertrains remains unchanged too. It will use the existing 1.3- and 1.5-litre petrol engines and the 1.4-litre turbodiesel not available in South Africa.

Mazda admits the newcomer is designed to attract new customers and expand the brand's European footprint.

The littlest Mazda has become a motoring revelation since its introduction last year, scooping more than 20 automotive awards already.

It was also awarded a five-start safety rating by the Euro NCAP programme.

The three-door Mazda2 will share its Geneva stage with the Taiki concept car fitted with the company's next-generation rotary engine, a hybrid Mazda5 MPV and the revised RX-8 four-seater sports car.
