A heavily-camouflaged Mazda 2 was recently seen in the wild in Northern Sweden. The 3-door looks to have some radical lines that are patterned after the Sassau Concept from the 2005 Frankfurt auto show. Although the previous generation of the Mazda 2 was not available in the US, recent gas spikes could allow the vehicle to hit US shores. Ford Motor Company, which has controlling interest in Mazda, has been looking to get into the small car segment and the platform that underpins this Mazda 2 will likely find its way into one or more Fords.

Production of the Mazda 2 will begin sometime this summer.

      The Mazda2 will not be imported to US. Mazda is trying to move up market not down. Funny how people think every car a manufacturer makes will end up here.

      I thought the Mazda3 was more of a Fit-fighter? The Mazda2 might look like a Versa fighter than anything else though.

      Should bring Mazda even more of a profit boost then they already have from the USA, and then Ford will finaly bring over small cars to go after the likes of the Fit, Versa, Aveo and such

      Mazda has never really been successful in the smallest segments of the market, but you have to give them points for trying to be different. Even if the the 2 (who knows what's under that camo?) ONLY looks like a junior-sized 3 it should do fairly well on the market. Would I consider it over a Versa or Fit? Depends on the drivetrain.
      BTW Toyota ought to sell the Yaris with a "harlequin" paint job (if you don't know what I mean, search VW's harlequin models) as the Yaris looks like something the clowns of today would stuff a dozen of their friends into.
