Mazda Motor Corporation will debut the sedan model of the all-new Mazda2 (known as Mazda Demio in Japan) at the Thailand International Motor Expo 2014*1 on 28 November 2014.

The all-new Mazda2 compact sedan features handsome proportions and bold styling, a high-quality, sporty interior and a combination of excellent driving performance and outstanding environmental and safety performance.

The all-new Mazda2 hatchback will also be exhibited at the expo; the first time the model has been displayed to the public in Thailand. Both the sedan and the hatchback feature the SKYACTIV-D 1.5, Mazda’s newly-developed small-displacement clean diesel engine. The all-new Mazda2 goes on sale in Thailand in early 2015.

The all-new Mazda2 is the fourth in Mazda’s line-up of new-generation vehicles adopting the full range of SKYACTIV technologies and the KODO-Soul of Motion design theme. All the new technologies and ideas that Mazda has cultivated throughout the development of its new-generation vehicles since the CX-5 have been packed into the model’s compact body. With features such as the Mazda Connect advanced car connectivity system,*2 the all-new Mazda2 offers functionality and value exceeding the standards of the segment. The model has received high acclaim, including being awarded 2014-2015 Car of the Year Japan in October 2014.

The Mazda2 is Mazda’s best-selling passenger model in Thailand with approximately 120,000 units sold since the model went on sale in the country in January 2010. The all-new Mazda2 has been approved for the second phase of Thailand’s Eco-Car programme, and with the local launch of the new model Mazda aims to further strengthen its business in the country.
