2015 Mazda2 01

Mazda has officially unveiled the all-new 2015 Mazda2, also known as Mazda Demio in Japan. With production already begun at its Hofu plant, the Mazda2 is expected to go into global markets starting this autumn. The fourth-generation hatch becomes Mazda’s fourth model to adopt the Skyactiv technology and Kodo design theme after the CX-5, Mazda6 and Mazda3.

We have seen the new hatch in its Hazumi guise in Geneva and the real deal as pictured here seems to closely follow the design of the concept. Despite the lack of details, the Japanese automakers confirms the full implementation of Skyactiv engine, transmission, body and chassis on the new Mazda2.
