Mazda has announced that the refreshed Mazda2 will be given its European premiere at next month's Paris motor show. The Japanese firm also plans to introduce a new 1.6-liter turbo diesel for the Mazda5 MPV, Mazda3 sedan and hatchback models at the show.

The updated European specced Mazda2 benefits from a nose job with reprofiled bumper and face grille along with some minor interior upgrades.
Other improvements include a tweaked chassis for better ride comfort and the introduction of a new automatic transmission variant with all engines in the Mazda2 lineup complying with the Euro 5 emissions standard.

Mazda will also premiere a new 1.6-liter turbo diesel engine for the Mazda5 MPV and Mazda3 models. The new diesel produces 115HP and is matched to a six-speed manual transmission, returning a combined fuel economy of 5.2lt/100km on the Mazda5 and 4.4lt/100km on the Mazda3.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
