Why ? More competition is good for the customers and besides it's always nice to hear a new model to be produced in China.
This is the new (FAW) Mazda2 Sedan, specially developed for China.

i like the car, i like most mazda designs,
i dont think MAZDA 2 is in north america, i wonder if it will ever come here! its like competitor with Toyota YARIS, but better..

i think this would be very good on gas and cheeap
That is the best looking Mazda I've seen yet. Yes, the Miata and RX-8 are cool designs, but this is more to my liking. Unfortunately, I reside in the U.S. and Mazda wasn't committing the Mazda2 to NA when I read about this car a month or so ago. Should do decently in China, though.

I don't like the Mazda3 design enough to jump on it, but this Mazda2, in sedan form, is a nice looking car, that should do well on gas, too.
Lookin' sharp to me! I like! Too bad it might not come to America for a long time.

I think Mazda has designed a subcompact that will really sell pretty well for them. It'll be a long time until it comes to the U.S., but it should sell in the UK, India, Japan, South America and generally everywhere else in Europe. It does have some serious competition...the Fiat 500, Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent and even the Smartfor to mention just a few. But it looks good and sound. Wonder what kind of gas mileage it gets.
Mazda 2 was officially launched in China yesterday, on November 27, according to

The model will be available in three versions: 1.3L MT will be sold at 83,800 yuan ($11,420), while 1.3L AT is priced at 91,800 yuan ($12,510) to 101,300 yuan ($13,870). It will be sold in 50 authorized dealers across the country as of January.

"By introducing the four-door sedan and five-door hatchback to the B-car segment in China, we have completed our product lineup in the B, C and D segments," said Noriaki Yamada, President and COO of Mazda Motor (China) Co., Ltd.

According to Mazda spokesman Ken Haruki, Mazda's sales in China this year is expected to reach about 100,000 cars, and the company aims to sell more than 180,000 cars in 2008 and 300,000 in 2010.

Another competitor is the Suzuki SX4 Sport sedan. No mention of an American introduction for this Mazda2, either.
