2011 Mazda 2
Mazda continues to push further into the small-car market. Not content with the success of its 3 compact car, the company is going even smaller with the 2011 Mazda 2.
With Ford's Fiesta and Chevrolet's Cruze on the way, Mazda is positioning the 2 to compete in this class when it reaches U.S. shores near the end of the summer in 2010.
Other details about this 5-door hatchback? Not much concrete at this point, but we do know that it will be powered by a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder that matches up with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Pricing hasn't been announced, but the guess here is that it will be between $13,000 and $16,000.
