A Japanese magazine is said to have leaked a rendition of the 2015 Mazda2 SkyActiv.

2015 Mazda2 SkyActiv

Weighing in at just over 2,300 pounds, the current generation Mazda2 uses an effective economy of space to deliver up to 35 highway mpg. While a fuel economy in the mid-30s is impressive by most auto maker’s standards, Mazda believes they haven’t begun to scratch the surface when it comes to Mazda2 fuel efficiency.

Drivers familiar with the current line of Mazda vehicles will recognize that Mazda2 is one of the last vehicles not dressed in the new KODO design language. Moreover, Mazda2 has also escaped a treatment of the SkyActiv powertrain technology currently at work in the new-model Mazda sedans. All of that is set to change, however, in 2014.

Though no specific release date has been set, the 2015 Mazda2 SkyActiv is part of the manufacturer’s plan to continue rolling out efficient and beautifully redesigned vehicles in 2014. Readers who frequent the Mazda of Lodi blog will recall a recent article about the next generation 2015 Mazda MX-5 Miata. Along with Mazda2, the Miata has also taken its time to adopt Mazda’s new design language and engine technology.


SkyActiv is set to reduce weight and increase efficiency in the 2015 Mazda2

Since SkyActiv is a comprehensive approach to vehicle efficiency, the 2015 Mazda2 SkyActiv is primed to outshine the current generation’s already-generous fuel economy. Consider the redesigned Miata that is also set to arrive this year. Due to the classic roadster’s first treatment of SkyActiv technology, the 2015 Miata is set to weigh in close to 300 pounds less than its predecessor.

Think of the drastic effect that SkyActiv may have on the 2015 Mazda2. Though no specific numbers are known as of yet, the weight loss and efficiency increase inherent to the SkyActiv approach should signal a significant jump in mileage for the Mazda2.

Along with the rest of the country’s Mazda enthusiasts, Mazda of Lodi will have to wait for more details on the 2015 Mazda2 SkyActiv. As more details are released though, the Mazda of Lodi blog will be sure to cover all the updates and implications regarding new Mazda2 news.
