Japanese carmaker Mazda is giving hints that it's finally ready to replace the aging 2 supermini/subcompact hatchback. A teaser photo was released today, for a concept called the the "Hazumi" which going to be shown for the first time in Geneva next month.
Like the Takeri concept of 2011, which contained 95% of the Mazda6 sedan's design, the Hazumi is a close match for the next supermini production model. This could be ready within a year and will be based on Mazda's own Skyactiv technology instead of using Ford architecture like the current model.

From the teaser, we can tell the Kodo Design language has rubbed off well onto the smallest car Mazda offers. The Hazumi is sharp and lacks the idiot grin of older models. The grille appears to be placed high up, between the headlights, giving the Japanese concept a wider and more aggressive look.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
