Just the Facts:
  • The redesigned 2016 Mazda 2 subcompact hatchback debuted on Wednesday, with U.S. deliveries expected in mid-2015.
  • The 2016 Mazda 2 is spun off the Mazda Hazumi Concept shown at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.

IRVINE, California — The redesigned 2016 Mazda 2 subcompact hatchback debuted on Wednesday, with U.S. deliveries expected in mid-2015.

The 2016 Mazda 2 is spun off the Mazda Hazumi Concept shown at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.

U.S. specifications will be revealed closer to the car's on-sale date, the automaker said.

The car goes on sale in Japan this fall with a Skyactiv-G 1.3-liter gasoline engine and a Skyactiv-D 1.5-liter clean diesel engine. It is not clear whether both of those engines will make it here.

Pricing has not been announced, but the Mazda 2 will likely start at around $16,000 in the U.S.

The stylish redesign, which features more curvaceous lines, a bulging hood and a larger grille, is calculated to shake up the market for small, practical runabouts. The Mazda 2 competes with the 2015 Chevrolet Spark, Fiat 500, Ford Fiesta and Honda Fit.

Mazda said the 2016 Mazda 2 will feature a "design language to match its larger siblings, the Mazda 3, Mazda 6 and CX-5."

Consumers can expect more advanced safety and connectivity features when the Mazda 2 arrives in showrooms. The Mazda Connect suite of technology that was first introduced in the larger Mazda 3 will make its way down to the Mazda 2, the company said in a statement. Mazda Connect includes service reminders, a navigation system and infotainment system.

The Mazda 2 is known as the Demio in Japan.

Edmunds says: Key details about the 2016 Mazda 2, including pricing, fuel economy and engine offerings, are not available at this point. We will update U.S. information as soon as possible.
