Many of the best things in life start out as mistakes, accidents, or happenstances. Take the Mazda2, for example. When Mazda created the now-popular subcompact, they didn’t even envision selling it in America. Those plans changed quickly, though, as Americans fell deeply in love with small cars for their practicality, economy, and efficient sense of style. The Mazda2 made its way to America, therefore, back in 2011.
Now, Mazda is releasing an updated version of the Mazda2, a redesigned subcompact ready to reign over a new generation of stylish small cars. The new Mazda2 will be a 2016 model, and while we don’t have many numbers and statistics about its power and efficiency yet, it’s quite a looker. If the car’s performance lives up to its stellar and sexy outward appearance, competitors beware.
This video of the 2016 Mazda Demio (Japanese version of the Mazda2) offers a great look at what to expect.
In fact, The Car Connection already proclaimed the Mazda2 a winner. “The Mazda2 should break through the clutter, offering a sexy new shape, an affordable price, and the zippy-and-zoomy personality that’s become a hallmark for the brand.” Mazda previewed the new subcompact at the Geneva Motor Show in the guise of its Mazumi Concept—we loved that concept here at Bakersfield Mazda, so we’re pretty confident we’ll love the real production deal as well.
