2011 Mazda2 - click above for high-res image gallery

Mazda has finally made it official this morning: it will be bringing its B-segment Mazda2 to the North American market late next year. As you are likely aware, the current generation Mazda2 has been sale in Europe and elsewhere for two years, but we'll be seeing it here for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show in a couple of weeks. The Maz2 shares its platform with the Ford Fiesta which will also make its U.S. production-spec debut at the West Coast show.

Mazda hasn't revealed any other details yet about powertrains or where the car will be sourced from. We expect a 1.6-liter four-cylinder to will be the primary engine. Judging by the teaser shot they released above, we can certainly expect to see the car at least in five-door hatchback form, but given that this is sedan-loving America, we would also expect a four-door with a trunk to show up in Mazda stores, although perhaps not at the LA Auto Show.

A poll should be made to see if people like the fiesta more the mazda2. Im worried tho bc mazda has always been the one to put the nicer bits in their cars then ford and this will be serious competition for the fiesta. Will ford offer the same level of equipment on the fiesta or do you think theyll try to cut the price to win over people with a less expensive car?

Hard to do the poll with out really having the Fiesta Yet nor the Mazda on the streets.

Lets throw up the poll when they have both been driven a couple of months.
