Mazda is set to unveil a 3-door version of its popular Mazda 2 model at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2008.
This is the first time Mazda has released a three-door version of the Mazda 2 and this new model will share the same dimensions and weight as the five-door unit. Since the launch of the new model Mazda 2 in September 2007 the new lighter model has proved very popular across Europe. The new Mazda 2 was awarded a 5-star NCAP safety rating and has also won more than 20 awards including Car of the Year awards in Austria, Belgium, Greece, Denmark, New Zealand plus the Japan RJC Car of the Year.
The 3-door Mazda 2 model will have the same engine units as the 5-door - MZR l.3 litre and 1.5 litre petrol engines plus the MZ-CD 1.4 litre turbo diesel. The new Mazda 2 model is particularly light, with a weight of under 1,000 kilograms and the engines give excellent fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.
Mazda will also be displaying other models at the Geneva Motor Show this year including an upgraded Mazda RX-8 coupe model and the Mazda 5 Hydrogen RE Hybrid.
