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.

    Very nice! It is great to see Mazda introducing so many great cars. I am eagerly anticipating the new Miata and will soon be in the market for a new 3 or 6.

    Great re-design - this will compete well with the newly redesigned Honda Fit; however, I predict the new Mazda2's road noise will be ear-splitting (just like the Mazda3)

    Hello all, I was hoping to find out if anyone knows anything about Mazda offering the Mazda 2 in sedan form, and further still, if the ties between Mazda/Toyota are making the future Yaris in sedan form? I hate to hear that Mazda's aren't too quiet as that becomes very tiring on the road.

    Sorry, meant to type "aren't" too quiet.
