Mazda Demio/2 Sedan unveiled

Mazda will unveil the four-door Mazda Demio/2 at the 2007 Guangzhou Motor Show this week. Designed especially for the Chinese market, the small saloon will be built the Changan Ford Mazda joint-venture. Designing a sedan form a small car is always a difficult exercise., but Mazda designers succeeded in drawing that looks like a small four-door Mazda 3 from the back. The saloon keeps the appealing style of the hatchback.
The engine line up will be likely similar to the Hatchback's with a 75 bhp 1.3 litre petrol engine and two 1.5 litre units, which deliver 84 bhp and 103 bhp. On the Chinese market, the four-door MAzda 2 will join the current lineup that includes the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6.
Do not expect to see the car on our roads. The is no real demand for tiny sedans in Europe and Mazda will probably focus on selling the Mazda 2 and the new Mazda 6.

I am the lover and supporter of Mazda vehicles but now, mazda is taking a different and wrong direction when it comes to Shape. It is better than Toyota Yaris (the most ugly car on the planet). New Mazda 3 is better,old Mazda 3 and 6 are excellent (exterior & interior) whilst BT-50 beats every bakkie in terms of shape and everything.
