Mazda is working the car show circuit with their soon to be launched subcompact hatchback, the Mazda 2. Family resemblence to the Mazda 3 and even the Mazda 6 is readily apparent, and the 2 is expected to live up to Mazda’s reputation for building entertaining cars in every niche. Slotted below the Mazda 3 family in both pricing and amenities, the Mazda 2 will be available with a five speed manual or five speed auto gearbox. Only one engine, a 1.5 liter four good for 103 horsepower, will be available. Look for the 2 to hit Mazda showrooms in summer 2010, at prices starting around $16k.
