Article by Christian A., on July 17, 2014

After yesterday’s leaked photos, Mazda officially introduced today the 2015 Mazda2 also known as Demio in Japan. Set to make its world debut at the 2014 Paris Motor Show in October, the all-new Mazda2/Demio features the full range of ultra-efficient Skyactiv Technology.

According to Mazda, Europe will get a new small displacement clean diesel engine, the Skyactiv-D 1.5 but also different power versions of the Skyactiv-G 1.5 petrol engine. The Skyactiv-D diesel engine delivers 105 hp (77 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm.

The petrol engine is not new as Mazda is already using it in the 2014 Mazda3.

All the engines are offered with a manual or automatic transmissions. In addition, the 2015 Mazda2/Demio gets the innovative MZD Connect in-car connectivity system, as well as the i-Activsense active safety technology.  

Regarding the design, this is inspired by the Hazumi Concept, unveiled back in March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Mazda continued to use the KODO – Soul of Motion design that is bursting with energy.

We don’t know the dimensions of the 2015 Mazda2/Demio yet, but we expect it to resemble the Hazumi Concept, which was 4070 mm long, 1730 mm wide and 1450 mm high. This means that the new model is longer, wider and lower than its predecessor. We expect more details and specs from Mazda so stay tuned!
