Next-gen Mazda2 reported to use shortened CX-5 platform

by SpeedLux

The generation next version of the Mazda2 will supposedly ride on a shortened platform of the CX-5, as per one of the spokespersons of a UK importer.

It is clearly known that the Mazda2 is considerably smaller than the CX-5 and so the Japanese engineers will have to do some serious efforts to make this task happen. The CX-5 platform has already been used for some of the other Mazda versions like the stylish Mazda6 and the new Mazda3 (hatchback and sedan) where it will be implemented and will be revealed before the end of the year. The Skyactiv platform will eventually support all FWD models, including a CX-9 successor.

The spokesperson even indicated that Mazda will make the switch to a four-year cycle which means the current Mazda6 will be replaced in 2016, following a 2014 update. It is still not clear whether models using platforms from other automakers will be a part of this scheme.
