Mazda2-based crossover will debut later this year

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 17, 2014

It appears that the latest trend is the small SUV segment and just like the other carmakers Mazda wants in this game. As a result, the Japanese company will introduce later this year a Mazda2-based crossover. Taking on its Japanese rival Honda Vezel, the new Mazda2-based crossover will be slotted below the Mazda CX-5 and will be initially sold in Japan.

Still, we expect to see this car also in Europe but especially on the emerging markets. Moreover, the new crossover will also get Mazda2’s new design as this will be introduced this summer. Asked about all these information, Mazda declined to comment, calling them speculative. The new crossover is expected to cost around 1.5 million yen and 2.0 million yen ($15,000-$20,000), according to Nikkei.

Furthermore, Mazda is also planning to expand its crossover line to three vehicles in Japan, with the new mid-sized CX-9 crossover. This vehicle is expected to receive a redesign and will arrive in Japan somewhere in 2015.
