Mazda2 will not be commercialized in United States
I'm not surprised. The Mazda2 in its current form doesn't compare well against its two nearest competitors in the US market, the Hyundai Accent and the Honda Fit, both of which have way more powerful engines with direct injection (138 for the Accent, 130 for the Fit).
