The Mazda Hazumi Concept – heading for a reveal at the Geneva Motor Show – previews the next generation Mazda 2.
Mazda are gearing up for the Geneva Motor Show next week with the first teaser image of the Mazda Hazumi Concept.
The Hazumi Concept – which apparently means ‘Spring up’ or ‘bound’ (as in ‘bound around’ not ‘bound up’) – is the firts clear view of the next generation Mazda 2 featuring the latest iteration of Mazda’s Kodo design language and clearly takes design cues from the new Mazda3.
We’ll get more details on the Hazumi/new Mazda2 as Geneva approaches, but we’re expecting it to spawn a production version of the next generation Mazda 2 that will go on sale before the end of 2014.
Also on Mazda’s agenda for Geneva is a new SkyActiv-D 1.5 litre diesel engine debut which will undoubtedly find its way in the to the new Mazda2 and others models in the Mazda range, particularly for Europe.
Finally, Mazda is marking the 25th anniversary of the MX-5 at Geneva too which will doubtless include MX-5s from across the years as well as a new limited edition MX-5.
