Just revealed at the Thai Auto Show. 

 

A Mazda 2 with a boot; A mini 3; likely will be made in Thailand. 

 

Set to take on the Toyota Vios. Honda City, Nissan Almera

 

Seems like the engine at launch is the SkyActiv-D 1.5 (aka Diesel); unsure if the 1.5 SkyActiv-G will be made available but I guess it has to be if it were to sell in greater quantities in SG. 

 

Transmission likely same as the 2 Hatch, which means it will likely be the 6 speed SkyActiv Drive transmission with Sports mode. 

 

Those in the market for a car in this segment, stay tuned.  [:p]

Nice!!

I didn't expect them to come out with this as it might eat into the Mz3 sales but then again if price correctly, it could target diff segments so might be a good move after all!
Boot looks abit shallow though.

Thks for sharing the pics!!

Hopefully , kerb less 1100kg , take away eloop, startstop . Balances out n get same fc as the 3 or near there . Shud be flat 10sec car like the 2hb .

A simplified no frills 3 without those sophisticated electronics but compensate with being lighter by more than 240kg . Just want that sky gas engine n sky 6at .

The technical man has spoken😃

Agreed should be stripped of the frills n targeted at entry level. That said the previous 2 sedan didn't sell well locally, not sure why?
Actually mz3 price is not very far off Vios, so if they price this well below ie around $10k less? Think it would be well received!! Yes, shed weight is impt as well!!

dun say like that, i pai seh leh  [blush] 

The prev Maz2 was in 2008? That may have clashed with the Gen 2 07 FIT from PI, followed by the Gen 2 Jazz 1.5 from AD.

Also while it looks quite good imo, it was with 1.5 with 4AT, with conservative numbers for hp & Nm. People whom could afford it would rather squeeze abit more for Jazz 1.5 w 5AT + Paddle shift from AD. Those who found it expensive go for Fit 1.3 (PI).

Also, there is the competitive SSS, though with 4AT then, had 125ps & 150nm, significantly better engine spec then the 2.

Just my few cents of opinion... [:p]

I hope is 20k cheaper than mz3...

 

Thinks this is without sunroof and all the things rite ? And the fact it is made in Thailand should lower the price also...

 

If not might as well go for Mz3 which is bigger and nicer...

Sadly, my guess is at most around $12k diff from Mz3, don't think can get $20k diff.

I hope I'm wrong though cos if price correctly, this car should sell and maybe propel Mazda

into the top 3 makes in S'pore next year :D

Actually they can have a no frills version and a deluxe version like Mazda 3. Something like Mazda3 2.0 which is very close to Mazda6.

I see from the pics they have the hud too.

actually, they should keep the eloop and start stop so that can have the cevs rebate of 10k

 

This way, might be cheaper a lot, say 15k cheaper than Mz3 and also FC might also be better...

 

I suppose take out sunroof means 5k cheaper, smaller car another 5k cheaper and make in Thailand might reduce the cost and price it another 5 k cheaper. Adds up to 15k savings..

Mazda 2 is available in Hatchback as well as the Sedan...

CX3 should be also making its mark soon :wub:

 

It should be the same1.5L engine like the Mazda 3....

It would be interesting to see how the AD is going to price their 2 and 3 [lipsrsealed]

Looking at those photos (and after seen 2-HB in showroom), dunno. The KODO design seems a bit awkward on the front end for the 2. Especially here in the photos it looks a bit face-squashed with oversized 'eyes' from front 3/4 angle.

 

In my opinion of course. KODO still looks good but not as good on the 2 as the 3/6.

Any idea when this will be launching? It will be launching in Australia in Q3 ...wonder if Singapore have the same timeline?

 

Wonder the price will be similar to the Mazda 2 hatchback or lesser ...following Mazda 3 sedan and hatchback pricing.
