The first official images with the Mazda2 Sedan have been published prior to the model’s public debut set for next week at the Thailand International Motor Expo.

In terms of design, the Mazda3 is considered a mini 6 and now it’s safe to say the new Mazda2 Sedan looks like a downsized 3 which isn't a bad thing as the subcompact sedan has probably one of the most appealing designs in its segment.

It will be powered by a SKYACTIV-D 1.5-liter diesel engine rated at 105 HP (77 kW) and 162 lb-ft (220 Nm) and although fuel economy figures have not been revealed, these should come very close to those of the Mazda2 hatchback which returns 69.1 mpg US (83 mpg UK or 3.4 liters / 100 km) with CO2 emissions of 89 g/km.

The Mazda2 Sedan is scheduled to go on sale in Thailand early next year, but there are some chances of seeing the model in Europe and Australia.
