Mazda 2

This is the Mazda 2 supermini as you've never seen it before with three doors.

It is the first time that Mazda has offered a three-door version of its popular supermini. The three-doors sporty looks and, according to Mazda, its lower price should guarantee it plenty of attention.

That price hasn't been confirmed yet, although it's expected to be about 500 less than the five-door models, which would mean a starting price of 7999.

Power comes from the same engines as in the five-door car a 1.3-litre petrol, a 1.5-litre petrol and a frugal 1.4-litre turbodiesel. A hot turbocharged MPS version will follow.

The Taiki concept car previously seen at the Tokyo motor show and powered by a next-generation rotary engine is also on display at Geneva.

It is joined on the Mazda stand by an upgraded RX-8 coup and a hydrogen hybrid version of the Mazda 5 MPV, which are being shown in Europe for the first time.
