MAZDA BREAKS COVER ON THE THREE-DOOR MAZDA 2
Mazda has recently shown us a lovely Lime-Green production version of the new Mazda2 sub-compact. It is quite an attractive and sharp looking little car, as well as being the base for the new Ford Fiesta that is coming to our shores in 2010.
But now, Mazda has shown us a new version of the Mazda2...a Three-Door!
Here is all the full details and photos courtesy of my friends at Left Lane News.com...enjoy!
The first ever three-door Mazda2 hatchback debuted today at the Geneva auto show, following a teaser image from January. Up until now, the Mazda2 has only ever been offered as a five-door hatch or four-door sedan, both of which were redesigned for the 2008 model year.
It's not known if any of the Mazda2 variants will be sold in the United States. That said, it's more likely the three-door hatchback will be sold here than the five-door variant. The next-generation Ford Fiesta, which is based on the Mazda2, is already expected to come to America.
Like the five-door, this latest Mazda2 model is offered with 1.3-liter and 1.5-liter gasoline engines, or a 1.4-liter turbo diesel. The three-door Mazda2 shares the same overall dimensions as the five-door and achieves a similarly modest curb weight.
Mazda2 three-door’s superior passive safety package includes six airbags (depending on grade), ABS, electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), emergency brake assist, and DSC stability control.
So...what do you think?
I know I love it!
