seamana putin, mazda asta 2 ar fi din punctul asta de vedere fratele mai bondoc al corsei
As a replacement for the Demio, the compact five-door five-seater Mazda 2 came on the market in 2002 and had been proven quite a success since its first appearance – especially the European market has accepted the tiny Japanese from the very first moment. The car is now due for replacement, and our spy-shots show it’s going to have an even more European design when it hits our shores in summer 2007.
The newcomer is again based on the Ford Fiesta and again engines will be mounted transversely driving the front wheels. Our pictures show an early prototype during a test-drive in Germany. The pictured prototype still has some black tape concealing the major styling changes at front- and rear end.

Mie imi place mai mult cum arata fata de vechea Mazda2.
normal.. e mai rotunjita, e mai europeana , e mai atractiva sper
se pare ca noua generatie de mazda 2 va fi fabricata doar in japonia, in uzina ujina din hiroshima, renuntandu-se la asamblarea in europa , in uzina din valencia spania
Mazda Motor Corporation has announced that the company will build its next sub- compact car (B-car) for the European market at its Ujina Plant in Hiroshima, Japan, as part of ongoing efforts to take advantage of global manufacturing efficiencies.
"Currently production of the Mazda2 (known as the Demio in Japan) exists in Valencia, Spain and Hiroshima, Japan. Our intention is to consolidate production of the next B-car into one location in order to maximize the economies of scale and efficiencies that this would offer. After assessing all risks and opportunities, including exchange exposure and Asia's growth potential, it made sense to select Japan as the location," says Mr. Hisakazu Imaki, Representative Director and Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Mazda Motor Corporation.
"We made the decision to relocate to Hiroshima and consolidate the assembly of the next B-car in consultation with our partner, Ford Motor Company," states Mr. Imaki, " Mazda continues to be an important partner of Ford Motor Company, and our relationship is integral to our global automotive strategy. We will continue to pursue synergies wherever we can."
Production of the Mazda2 in Europe commenced in 2003. It joined the ranks of Mazda's new generation products (beginning with the Atenza/Mazda6 launched in Japan and overseas in 2002) that personify the Zoom-Zoom brand message. The Mazda2 has played an important role in expanding Mazda's market share in the major markets such as Europe, and increasing the public awareness of the Mazda brand.
At the Valencia plant, over 143,000 Mazda2's have been built since production began in 2003. In Japan, production of the first generation Demio commenced in 1996 and the total domestic volume of all Demios/Mazda2's exceeded one million units by the end of September 2006.
The lively exterior design along with highly efficient packaging, enhanced quality interior and outstanding performance and safety helped these models gain a reputation ahead of other compact cars. Mazda has scheduled production of the next B-car to begin in 2007.
Ford of Europe has confirmed that the move will not adversely affect the Valencia assembly plant, where volume will be maintained through higher production of existing models.
Bine ca scad taxele vamale.

Mazda Motor Corporation will showcase the world premiere of the all-new Mazda2 (known as the Mazda Demio in Japan) at the 77th annual Geneva International Motor Show to be held from Tuesday, 6 March through Sunday, 18 March 2007. Officially titled the Salon International de l’Auto de Genève, the Geneva Motor show press days are March 6 and 7, and the public days are March 8-18. Mazda will hold its press conference on Tuesday, 6 March at 14:15 CET.
The all-new Mazda2 is more than just a model freshening of the current Mazda2. In 2002, the Mazda6 heralded the arrival of Mazda’s new generation of Zoom-Zoom vehicles, and now the Mazda2 becomes the first of these to evolve to the next level. As such, the new Mazda2 represents the progression of Mazda’s Zoom-Zoom brand promise.
noi imagini si informatii oficiale ce interior
Mazda Motor Corporation starts the European auto show season at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show with the all-new Mazda2, the ?rst new-generation model to evolve Mazda Zoom-Zoom to the next stage. Joining it at the stand is an exciting new concept car, Mazda Hakaze, and two vehicles that will ensure Mazda sales momentum continues in Europe this year and beyond – the new Mazda3 2.0 MZR-CD turbo diesel, along with the Mazda CX-7 sports car SUV.
Premiering at Geneva is the Mazda Hakaze concept car , the third expression of Mazda’s new Nagare design language developed by Mazda’s new global design director, Laurens van den Acker. Conceived at the Mazda Motor Europe design centre near Frankfurt, Germany, it is a unique compact crossover coupe with roadster feel . It features distinctive Nagare ?ow lines on the outside and a unique interior that combines sand dune like forms, natural-feeling surfaces and cool, kite-sur?ng functionality.
The All-New Mazda2 – Compact, Lightweight and Fun
Mazda chose Geneva 2007 for the world premiere of its new B-car , because sub-compacts are an important and growing segment, especially in Europe. However, the new Mazda2 is much more than simply a model change from the current Mazda2 – it is the ?rst of Mazda’s new-generation line up to re?ect an evolution of Zoom-Zoom. The all-new Mazda2 re?nes Mazda’s DNA, enhances B-car driving attributes, while meeting global environmental and safety standards. Body- structure optimization and an increased use of high-tensile steel have not only made the new Mazda2 safer and quieter , it also made it about 100 kg lighter than its predecessor, making it even more frugal at the pump.
On the outside, the new Mazda2 has an exquisite and dynamic design with a distinctive Mazda identity, while the inside design delivers a cabin that is refreshingly unique with contoured forms that combine thickness with strong visual movement. Added to this is insightful functionality , like a high placement of the gear lever for easy shifting and a new glove box with a magazine rack.
The new Mazda2 will be launched initially with two petrol engines , an MZR 1.3-litre engine (standard 75 PS and 84 PS high-power derivatives depending on market) and an MZR 1.5-litre with 103 PS of power. Both petrols have technologies that deliver brisk throttle response for everyday driving fun and fuel economy that is among the segment’s best . For the European market, a fuel-ef?cient MZ-CD 1.4-litre diesel engine will be introduced a few months later.
Mazda3 2.0 MZR-CD – the New Sporty Diesel Version
Mazda’s third global premiere at this year’s Geneva Motor Show is a new, powerful 2.0-litre common-rail version of Mazda’s best-selling Mazda3. It combines sporty driving enjoyment with low fuel consumption and will make Mazda3 even more popular in Europe. Its high torque of 360 Nm at just 2,000 rpm (one of the highest in the segment) and its output of 105 kW/ 143 PS at 3,500 rpm give the already agile-handling Mazda3 a truly sporty nature. Its high-pressure common-rail injection system ensures re?ned operation and contributes to low fuel consumption of just 6.0 litres of fuel per 100 km (combined) for both the sedan and hatchback.
Mazda CX-7 – The Sports Car SUV
Also at Geneva is a vehicle that shows Mazda at its innovative best – the European version of the new Mazda CX-7, set for launch later this year. A crossover vehicle , it combines high- performance power, a sporty design, SUV functionality and comfort in a single, fun to drive car. With its powerful MZR 2.3-litre direct-injection turbo petrol with intercooler, Mazda’s Active Torque-Split All-Wheel Drive system for superior traction and a six-speed manual transmission speci?cally developed for Europe, the Mazda CX-7 delivers levels of Zoom-Zoom driving fun not usually found in an SUV. Added to this fun-factor is a long list of standard equipment, all of which makes the Mazda CX-7 an ideal vehicle for a sporty and multi-activity lifestyle.
Compact, Lightweight and Fun
Mazda2, the ?rst Zoom-Zoom choice
Eye-catching and dynamic design
Superior fuel economy through lightness and compactness
Mazda Motor Corporation has always used the Geneva Motor Show as a venue for important global premieres and this year is no exception with the ?rst showing anywhere of the all-new Mazda2. More than simply a model update, Mazda’s new B-car has been redesigned from the ground up and is the ?rst of Mazda’s acclaimed new-generation line up to be evolved. It delivers a superior package of attributes that will appeal to a growing global market for sub-compact cars.
Zoom-Zoom – Mazda began using this expression with the launch of its ?rst new-generation model, the Mazda6, in 2002. It expresses the love of motion and is used by children to imitate the sound of an engine. And it has always been more than merely a brand slogan. It describes Mazda’s ultimate goal: to provide customers, who never forgot the love of motion they felt in childhood, with an exhilarating driving experience.
Now, Mazda is unveiling the all-new Mazda2 at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. The new Mazda2 is not just a model change from the current Mazda2, but the ?rst of Mazda’s new-generation line up to evolve to the next stage. It re?ects not only Zoom-Zoom passion, but also a range of capabilities re?ned in a severely competitive environment using input from customer feedback around the globe. The aim was to further re?ne Mazda’s DNA — distinctive design, exceptional functionality, and responsive handling and performance — while enhancing driving quality attributes such as ride comfort and quietness and meeting global environmental and safety performance standards. The all- new Mazda2 represents an evolution of Zoom-Zoom. With this new model, Mazda aims at strengthening the Mazda brand and further expanding its presence in the global B- car segment , especially in Europe, where the segment has grown by around 10% in the last six years and where more than one car in four is a B-car.
In developing the new Mazda2, Mazda took a fresh look at the global sub-compact car market, where there is intense competition among many diverse brands and vehicles, and worked to identify the truly important attributes for a global B-car. These attributes include superior fuel ef?ciency , which is crucial for low running costs and reduction of CO 2 emissions; easy-to-drive functionality and operability; Mazda’s unique dynamic performance , which delivers enjoyable, comfortable driving; and a design that instantly grabs attention. While many other carmakers have enlarged their small cars, Mazda was able to reduce the size of its B-car with the new Mazda2 (-40 mm now at 3885 mm) and still meet the mainstream demands of sub-compact customers while enhancing safety .
A Dynamic Design to Attract Customers Worldwide
With the look of the new Mazda2, Mazda’s mission was to embody its next-generation design direction in a way that would appeal to a wide range of people in many global markets. Given that customer preferences differ from market to market, Mazda considered various design directions with a view to satisfying all the diverse expectations. Designers then re?ned the ?ndings of the study in pursuit of an exquisite and dynamic design with a distinctive Mazda identity. Blending sharp contours with clear expressions of gentleness, they created a look that has global appeal.
Design Concept – Exquisite and Dynamic
With the goal of expressing re?ned dynamism, the designers further evolved the look of athletic movement that characterizes Mazda’s DNA. At the same time, they worked to create forms that would convey a sense of precision in line with the Japanese appreciation of simplicity of form and objects that are beautiful because of their simplicity. The key to the new look was a design concept described by the design team as ‘exquisite and dynamic’. Here, ‘exquisite’ denotes the designer’s desire for the design to possess forms that express beauty and a carefully considered dynamism. Designers and modellers scrutinized each line, contour, and other design expression in line with their vision of dynamism, even taking into account the relationship between the car’s exterior look and the space-ef?ciency of the cabin. This discriminating approach gave the exterior and interior of the new Mazda2 a dynamic character that’s immediately recognizable.
Some of the design elements were ?rst publicly seen in the Mazda SASSOU design concept model that debuted to great acclaim at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show. In line with the positive feedback from Frankfurt, the designers carried them forward and re?ned them for the production model.
An Exterior Design with Dynamic, Multifaceted Expressions
In line with an exterior design theme of ‘coordinated movements’, the visual movements created by the car’s silhouette, the lines of the body, and the patterns of light over the body were combined to create dynamic, multifaceted expressions not typically seen on a B-car. The resulting exterior design exudes a powerful energy that makes the new Mazda2 look as though it’s about to move even when it’s parked. Expressing dynamic movement within the body’s limited dimensions was a major design challenge. For those looking for an even sportier look, a Sports Appearance Package is available (depending on market).
By pursuing beauty in the transitions between each expression of movement, the design team realized forms that have natural-looking visual movements and convey subtle craftsmanship. The diversity of visual expressions — the body has sharp lines but also conveys softness and gentleness, and it has ?owing lines but also conveys a sense of solidity — is a unique attribute achieved by following the ‘coordinated movements’ design theme .
An Emotionally Appealing Interior Design Conveying Dynamism and Nimbleness
Mazda2’s interior design theme was ‘a space that communicates movement’. Whereas most B-segment cabins have monotonous design treatments with ?at surfaces, the interior design team made the new Mazda2’s cabin strikingly different through contoured forms that combine reassuring thickness with strong visual movement .
The instrument panel helps to create a sense of space despite the cabin’s compact dimensions; its design creates lateral visual movement from the centre toward the base of the pillar on each side by means of a recess that runs from side to side between the instrument panel’s upper and lower sections. At the same time, the instrument panel’s middle area has a substantial form that communicates a unique character. A contrast between silver accents on a black keynote colour adds further sportiness and individuality to the cabin. Plus, distinctive circular details contribute to a fresh, emotionally appealing look and feel.
Pursuit of Functionality and Operability Required in a B-Car
Most B-segment car buyers want a day-to-day means of getting around and running errands, so it’s vital for a car of this size to be easy to drive and easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces such as car parks. With the new Mazda2, functionality and operability were improved in various ways based on driver-focused ideas and in line with how a B-car is actually used.
Making the All-New Mazda2 Driver-Friendly for Everyone
The design of the Mazda2’s shoulder line, which is angled signi?cantly downward toward the front of the car, is complemented by low mounting points for the door mirrors to afford the driver good downward visibility toward the front and sides. The good visibility makes turning into and driving on narrow roads and looking past the door mirrors to check for pedestrians when turning at junctions all the easier. Furthermore, the new Mazda2 has superior driver-seat adjustability, which is combined with an ergonomic design in which the position of the gear lever is higher for easier shifting.
Ample, Smartly Conceived Storage with No Compromises on Space
When designing the cabin, items young drivers would be likely to have in their cars were also considered and the interior team redesigned storage spaces – such as the glove box and ?oor console – based on these ?ndings. For instance, the new glove box features a magazine rack that allows users to access travel guidebooks and road atlases without having to open the glove box itself. Also, the ?oor console between the front seats has a large rear tray stable enough for storing handbags and other personal items. A 60:40-split rear seat (depending on grades) guarantees convenience and luggage space to meet daily needs. There is a total of 250 litres of luggage space.
The Zoom-Zoom Driving Experience that’s Unique to Mazda
Performance that gives the driver con?dence is essential for true driving enjoyment. So the new Mazda2 exceeds conventional levels of dynamic performance with agile but stable handling, high body rigidity, strong stopping power, a con?dence-inspiring brake feel, and comfort-enhancing quietness. Plus, the new Mazda2 has a comprehensive powertrain line up that combines superior fuel economy with enjoyment and driveability.
Environmental Compatibility with Zoom-Zoom Performance
Mazda is serious about improving fuel ef?ciency as a way to reduce CO 2 emissions and other exhaust gases that place a burden on the environment. So the new Mazda2 minimizes weight as a means of increasing fuel economy. Even before full-?edged development of the car was under way, a special team was busy devising weight-saving techniques using the latest computer-aided engineering technologies. The team incorporated these techniques into prototype vehicles and conducted evaluations of the resulting low weight on dynamic performance, ultimately achieving signi?cant weight savings together with superior Zoom- Zoom driving enjoyment. Through measures that included body-structure optimization and increased use of high- tensile steel, engineers not only made the new Mazda2 about 100 kg lighter than its predecessor , they also achieved major improvements in terms of safety, body rigidity, and noise, vibration, and harshness — all attributes that conventionally mean more weight. With the additional bene?ts of enhanced powertrain technologies and aerodynamic performance, the new Mazda2 delivers some of the best fuel economy in its segment (up to about 15%* better than the previous model). Underpinning the weight-saving technologies in the new Mazda2 is a new platform that re?ects Mazda’s expertise in the development of small cars.
* Depending on model
Brisk Handling and a Stable, Quiet Ride
With the new Mazda2’s chassis, engineers pursued superior dynamic performance through brisk, nimble handling, through stability that inspires con?dence even at motorway speeds, and through a ride that’s quiet and feels steady but mild. The lightness and rigidity of the body played an important role in maximizing handling and ride quality. With regard to handling, engineers targeted manoeuvrability and agility on urban roads, brisk, linear steering response and high grip on winding roads, and superior straight-line stability and con?dence-inspiring lane-change behaviour on motorways.
To help achieve these targets, various grades of high-tensile steel sheeting give the body superior local rigidity. The light, highly rigid body shell also ensures optimal geometry in the car’s MacPherson-strut front suspension and H-type torsion- beam rear suspension, whatever the driving conditions.
The new Mazda2 will be launched initially with two petrol engines: the MZR 1.3-litre DOHC (standard and high-power derivatives depending on market) and MZR 1.5-litre DOHC. For the European market, a fuel-ef?cient, clean-running MZ- CD 1.4-litre diesel engine will be introduced a few months later. Each engine combines the superior fuel economy expected in a sub-compact car with a lively performance feel that’s pure Zoom-Zoom.
The 1.3-litre DOHC and 1.5-litre DOHC MZR petrol engines each have a sequential valve timing system and optimized exhaust-valve timing, which together realize superior cylinder-charging ef?ciency at all engine speeds. The 1.5-litre DOHC engine additionally has a variable induction system , which ensures smooth, strong torque delivery throughout the rev range. These technologies ensure highly controllable, linear acceleration and brisk throttle response, so drivers in everyday situations can enjoy the lively engine performance that’s a hallmark of Mazda.
Superb Active and Passive Safety
A fundamental requirement for safety is dynamic performance that allows the driver to con?dently control the car in exact accordance with his or her intentions. So the all-new Mazda2 has handling that realizes predictable steering response and superior straight-line stability and a braking system that consistently delivers linear braking force in response to pedal inputs. For customers in Europe and Australia, dynamic stability control is available as an option, that further enhances active safety by helping to control side slip. For passive safety in the new Mazda2, an evolution of the unique, high-rigidity, high-safety Mazda Advanced Impact Distribution and Absorption System body structure realizes superior crash resistance by dispersing impact energy throughout the car in the event of an impact from any direction. The body structure is complemented by dual front airbags as standard, with front side airbags and curtain airbags available on option. Also, the bonnet, fenders, and wipers are designed to help minimize injuries in the event of contact with a pedestrian.
Conclusion – small and friendly with plenty of Zoom-Zoom
The all-new Mazda2 is an urban vehicle that’s comfortable and safe to drive, with a strong element of Zoom-Zoom fun thrown in. While being affordable and inexpensive to run with excellent fuel economy, it delivers virtually the same level of Zoom-Zoom fun as Mazda’s larger vehicles. It’s a delight to drive, a joy to own, fun to use, and the most personable car in Mazda’s line up. For the development of this all-new model, the perspective was broadened from a Japanese one to a global viewpoint. Mazda is con?dent that the Mazda2 will earn the respect of many customers and that it will strengthen and expand the presence of the Mazda brand in sub-compact car markets. The new Mazda2 will be produced in Japan.

New Sporty Turbo-Diesel Version
New 2.0-litre common-rail turbo diesel with 360 Nm of torque and 143 PS
Low NVH levels for enhanced driving comfort
Larger stabilizers and brakes; dynamic stability control standard
Beginning in the summer of 2006, Mazda completely renewed and expanded the Mazda3 line up. It began with the introduction of a major facelift and, at the end of 2006, with the launch of the high-performance sports compact ?agship, Mazda3 MPS. And the good news now continues with another major addition to the Mazda3 line up, the 143 PS, MZR-CD 2.0 common-rail turbo diesel engine in both sedan and hatchback models.
This top-grade Mazda engine is meant to appeal to Europeans looking for sporty driving enjoyment with low fuel consumption . And it will make Mazda3 even more popular. Through December 2006, Mazda has sold almost 275,000 Mazda3s in Europe, making it Mazda Motor Europe’s best- selling car. But Mazda3 popularity is a global phenomenon as well, and production of the compact reached the 1 million- unit mark at the beginning of September 2006, making it the fastest Mazda ever to achieve this milestone.
Powertrain – New Sporty and Frugal Common-rail Turbo Diesel
The MZR-CD 2.0 turbo diesel is a great addition to the Mazda3 line up. Its output of 105 kW/ 143 PS at 3,500 rpm is plenty of power for a compact car, and its high torque of 360 Nm (amongst the very top offers in the category , and approaching the MPS ?agship) at just 2,000 rpm gives the already agile-handling Mazda3 a truly sporty nature.
The engine’s variable-geometry turbocharger provides high maximum output and torque across a wide range of engine speeds. In fact, most of the engine’s high torque is available as low as 1,500 rpm, ensuring quick and powerful engine response to accelerator pedal input, which makes Mazda3 2.0 MZR-CD a fun car to drive. Strong, linear acceleration and smooth engine operation is delivered by its high-pressure common-rail technology . The new model’s drive shafts are strengthened speci?cally to handle the new engine’s high torque output.
Sporty and re?ned, it also uses just 6.0 litres of fuel per 100 km (combined) for both sedan and hatchback. It realizes this via six-hole injectors, for optimal fuel atomization; by electronically controlling injection volume, frequency and timing (up to 1800 bar , up to 6 injections per cycle ), and by employing a low compression ratio of 16.7 : 1. The result is a sporty driving experience and comfortable motorway cruising, without high fuel costs.
The engine also comes standard with Mazda’s maintenance- free, diesel particulate ?lter system that lowers particulate matter emissions to almost nothing and ensures Euro Stage IV compliance and low operating costs. The engine is coupled to a precise and smooth-shifting, six-speed manual transmission based on the one found in the high- performance Mazda3 MPS . An especially good match to the MZR-CD 2.0 turbo diesel’s power and high torque, this gearbox contributes much to the sporty nature of this engine.
Exterior & Interior – Low Cabin Noise and Enhanced Driving Comfort
Discreet design changes were introduced with the Mazda3 facelift in 2006 that enhanced even further the car’s already high emotional appeal, while adding a host of convenience features like the advanced keyless entry and start system , a 20 gigabyte hard-disc drive (HDD) audio system (according to market) and a seven-speaker Bose® sound system . In developing the new Mazda3 MZR-CD 2.0 turbo diesel, Mazda engineers focussed on cabin and drive comfort, keeping engine noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) as low as possible. This ensured that the top-end Mazda3 turbo diesel delivers undiluted sporty fun without any inconvenience in the cabin.
Mazda3 2.0 MZR-CD employs high pressure common-rail injection technology, which is smooth running and re?ned, coupled with NVH enhancements introduced with the Mazda3 facelift like low roll-noise tyres and extensive sound insulation . For added comfort, an auxiliary water heater system with a larger heater core is introduced and cruise control is also available that makes motorway driving in sixth gear over long distances practical and comfortable.
Chassis and Safety – Enhanced Body Stiffness and Suspension
To translate the MZR-CD 2.0 turbo diesel’s high torque into controllable and reliable traction, engineers installed special body shell reinforcements from the high-performance Mazda3 MPS – the front suspension upper plate, front cowl member and larger middle tunnel cross member. Mazda3 facelift’s MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension are enhanced for this engine with larger stabilizers , and coil spring rates and dampers optimized to deliver agile Zoom-Zoom handling that is a good compromise between sporty and comfortable. Taken together, these chassis features provide superior road hold and even more linear steering response from the car’s hydraulic power assist steering system , making a Mazda3 with the new 143 PS turbo diesel an exhilarating experience on the road.
Active safety is also specially enhanced for the Mazda3 2.0 MZR-CD to ensure reliable deceleration in all situations. Larger discs are onboard ( 300 mm ventilated discs in front, 280 mm solid discs at the back) and form the basis for ABS, dynamic stability control (DSC) and traction control (TCS), electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD) and emergency brake assist, all standard . Active safety options include automatic light and rain-sensing systems .
Passive safety is the same as all Mazda3 facelift models and includes seatbelt pretensioners with load-limiters for front occupants, front, side and curtain airbags , and a seatbelt reminder system for all passengers. New safety padding on the steering column is combined with a new steering wheel adjustment lever, designed to further decrease the risk of injury to the driver’s knees in case of frontal collision.
