Irvine, California – The 2011 Mazda2 will make its North American debut at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show in December, and will be sold in Canada and the U.S. beginning in late 2010.

Designed and engineered by Mazda, the Mazda2 brings a new level of style and driving dynamics to the North American subcompact market. It was named the 2008 World Car of the Year and was recognized as Car of the Year in more than 20 countries.

In addition to a stock Mazda2, a selection of unique Mazda2 vehicles will also be on display to showcase the car’s creative potential and versatility.

“Bringing Mazda2 to North America completes the bookends in our lineup,” said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations. “With the seven-passenger crossover CX-9 at one end, and the subcompact Mazda2 at the other, Mazda’s lineup now spans the most significant two product segments in the industry, and is the strongest, best-designed, best-built we have ever offered. Mazda2 will be true to everything that makes our cars stand apart from the competition: it will be stylish, fun to drive and a heck of a value.”
