Motivation for the 2 lineup comes from a pair of gasoline engines and a diesel mill. In gas models, 1.3 litre and 1.5 litre MZR-series power is available. A 1.4 litre common-rail diesel engine can be fitted for enhanced cruising range and fuel efficiency. Engine choices are the same in either body configuration.
The 2 three-door boasts the same distinctive style as its five-door brother. This is Mazda's first new-age vehicle to apply their new styling language, so even if the 2 doesn't ever hit our shores, its great looks will. Sculpted lines and wrap-around tail-lamps work towards a flowing look, and a hatch-spoiler, styled wheels and black bumper insert suggest sportiness.
The Geneva motor show is held March 4 through March 16.
