Mazda is on a styling roll these days with the stunning Mazda6 sedan and appealing Mazda3 compact producing waves for their swoopy appears. That leaves the small Mazda2 up coming in line for a revision. We might have just gotten a search at its future with the unveiling of the new Hazumi concept at the 2014 Geneva International Motor Display.

Featuring the latest version of Mazda’;s “Kodo” style language, the organization likes to draw comparisons to animals for the search of the subcompact 5-door hatchback. Phrases such as “cheetah-like face” with the “look of an animal on the prowl” are not inappropriate. Even so, the Hazumi does have a dynamic, sculpted appear that would not be out of location in Mazda showrooms as the subsequent Mazda2. The lines almost evoke an Alfa Romeo feel to the car, with aspects of Mazda’;s other vehicles thrown in.
Within, a black leather base with white leather accents and red fabric seats hold the hot exterior style going, but sadly this is very likely to be toned down significantly for any production auto based mostly off of this concept. The model also features Mazda’;s newest multimedia system as effectively, dubbed Mazda Connect.
The powertrain is also intriguing — a turbocharged 1.5-liter diesel engine that would slot beneath the 2.2-liter turbo-diesel Mazda uses in significantly of the rest of the planet (but not North America — not yet at least). Using Mazda’;s SkyActiv technology, the new engine is supposedly extremely clean and efficient, but the company has not yet launched any details on electrical power output.
