Mazda Presents Trio Of Mazda2 Concepts, Hints At Mazdaspeed Model

Follow Viknesh

As the media days at this year’s Los Angeles Auto Show draw to a close, Mazda has used the opportunity to roll out a trio of new concept cars based on the new 2011 Mazda2 hatchback.

All three concept cars feature a definite sporty theme, possibly hinting at the design for a new Mazdaspeed2.

The first of these is the grey-colored Mazda 2Evil Concept. This concept is inspired by the weekend track car but one that can function equally well as an urban commuter. The body has been modified to show a more aggressive front spoiler and a deeper side rocker for improved aerodynamics and lower overall stance.

Performance modifications include 17-inch wheels shod with Yokahama Advan tires, lowered coil-over suspension provided by H&R, and a Magna performance exhaust.

The other two are the Active2 Surf and Active2 Snow lifestyle concepts. In addition to new graphics and 17-inch wheels, the Active2 Surf has been set up with a Thule roof rack system and a matching carbon-fiber surfboard, while the Active2 Snow gets the same Thule roof rack system but with matching snowboards.

  1. As expected, Mazda unveiled its new 2011 Mazda2 subcompact at the Los Angeles Auto Show yesterday. The company also showed a couple of concept versions, including one called "Mazda 2Evil" that we really liked.

  2. Those are some wicked Mazdas, however they remind of of Peugeot 206

  3. Sry my first comment had some typos
