looks like a shrunken down 3, even the interior looks like the shrunken down 3.
i like! im reading from autoblog, the 2 is using a shrunken down skyactiv platfrom from the 3. so mazda is using the same platform for the 2,3,6 and cx-5. rumor is that miata/mx5 will also use the same platform.
i like how mazda kept all the good stuff of each previous car they design and improved on it. since the CX5, each mazda has gotten incrementally better .


oh yea, the 3 looks like someone stepped on the the CX-5.

If this 2 had been out when I bought my 3... I might have got a 2..

Aww, I like it. It's just too under-powered. But basically it is a smaller Mazda 3. I might have still considered it if it was already out, but it's amazing how similar it looks in both interior and exterior. I actually think I like the interior better with those rounded air vents, but that's probably because I came from a MINI Cooper. However, it's still small and definitely not much power. I am happy with my Mazda3!

All it needs is a Lip Kit, 18" Rims, and a hatch spoiler and I would look pretty good. I like what they did to the front grille, how they closed the grille with the thicker black piece. Its a mix between Audi and Mazda.

I might be the only one to say this here but...where is the originality in each model... A 2,3,5,6, RX7, RX-8, CX5, CX7, CX9 all looked diffrent and unique to it's model line. I for one like original designs per model line. It's more creative and creates diversity in clientele by personality and taste (and wallet). If they make most Mazda models look the same, your basically exposed to assimilation. Even the interior looks like the 3. That's going to far in my opinion.

Mazda 6 = Papa Bear
Mazda 3 = Mama Bear
Mazda 2 = Baby Bear

The family resemblance is so apparent, this analogy seemed to fit.

Yeah...can't wait for september or whenever the reveal of the new miata is happening. Sooner than later would be better as my wife will need a car once we move this summer and it is on her shortlist.:cheesy:

This kodo 2 is cute but still a little potato-y.

I like it. Now I want to see a new Miata and Mazda5. We've got a 2010 Mazda5 and want to upgrade to a Skyactiv version. I hope they don't discontinue it in the US. It is a super affordable, fun to drive, people and cargo mover. Especially with the manual transmission like ours. :thumbup 1:
