Picture of Mazda Hazumi concept leaked ahead of its Geneva debut

Picture of Mazda Hazumi concept leaked ahead of its Geneva debut

Earlier this week, Mazda had announced its intent of unveiling a new hatchback concept at the Geneva Motor Show when it released a teaser image of the Hazumi concept. Now, an image of the complete car has been leaked online. The concept will inspire the next generation production-version of Mazda2, which will be showcased later in the year. Translating into ‘spring up’ or ‘bound’ in Japanese, Mazda says the name of the concept is "particularly well-suited to a small car that appears to be bursting with energy."

The concept borrows design cues from its elder siblings, the Mazda3 and Mazda6. The Hazumi is based on a shortened variant of the CX-5's platform and features Mazda’s Kodo design language. The concept sports an aggressive stance with a prominent grille at the front, flanked by LED headlamps and a front spoiler. The side profile features sporty side skirts and massive alloys which are housed in the flared wheel arches. We expect further details of the car to be revealed once it is unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

 

The company says that the new Mazda 2, which will be based on this concept (Hazumi), will grow in size compared to the outgoing model and will particularly target a female audience. Reports indicate that the new Mazda 2 will also spawn a Toyota variant besidesinspiringan entry-level crossover for the company to be positioned below the CX-5. 

Besides the Hazumi concept, Mazda will also showcase their newly developed SkyActiv-D 1.5 clean diesel engine. This engine is likely to end up under the hood of the Mazda2 as well as other small and compact models from the Japanese car maker.
