2011 Mazda2 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Mazda announced today at the 2010 New York Auto Show that the 2011 Mazda2 hits dealerships this summer priced from $14,730 (*including the $750 destination charge). The cute little hatchback will provide some serious competition for the likes of the Honda Fit, and Ford will surely see some inner-family competition against its own Fiesta, which the Mazda2 is heavily based on.

The base Mazda2 Sport model is powered by a 100-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either a four-speed automatic or five-speed manual transmission. (Opting for the autobox adds $800 to the bottom line). The list of standard features is what we'd expect from a vehicle in this segment, and includes things like ABS, stability control, traction control, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo and 15-inch steel wheels. Upgrading to the top-trim Touring model will cost you $16,185 including destination fees, and adds alloy wheels, upgraded seat cloth, fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, a chrome exhaust tip and a rear spoiler.

We're eager to get behind the wheel of the U.S.-spec 2, and we're crossing our fingers and toes in hopes that a Mazdaspeed2 will be in the cards, too, but we're thinking that the sprightly little hatch is already toting a not-insubstantial pricetag, especially as the significantly more grown up and altogether likable 2010 Mazda3 starts at $16,045 including delivery charges.

I have to say, Im pretty disappointed in this car. Mazda is supposed to be all zoo
zoom but this car is lacking. Besides the 100hp, the reason I am disappointed is the competition will eat this up. The Fiesta is already more powerful, has a nicer interior, more options, a 6 speed manual and a 6 speed dual clutch auto andnis priced similarly....why would anyone buy this thing? Its not so much the power but the delievery thru those gears. A 5 spd, ok not bad....but a 4 spd, really? I was afraid the mazda version would trump the Fiesta, but I guess i was wrong.
