Mazda appears to be wasting no time with its ‘new 2’, as new reports suggest the Mazda2 hatch’s sedan companion will debut later this month in Thailand.

According to newspaper The Bangkok Post, the carmaker’s Thai arm has confirmed the new four-door model will debut at the Thailand Auto Expo.

Previewed above and below in speculative renderings by independent artist Theo Chin, the new sedan’s debut will follow the July unveiling of the new hatch that hit Australian showrooms last week.

Interestingly, the new model’s debut will make Mazda the first carmaker to build and sell a diesel-engined model in Thailand, thanks to a government ‘eco car’ programme that offers incentives for diesel engines up to 1.5 litres in capacity.

Although not offered with the Australian range, the new Mazda2 is offered in overseas markets with a 1.5 litre diesel engine.

That diesel remains off the cards for Australia, but the new sedan is known to be under consideration for a local launch.

It remains to be seen however if Mazda Australia will take the leap: in its previous incarnation, back in 2010, the Thai-sourced Mazda2 sedan managed to grab little more than 10 percent of total sales for the range.

Today's report of a new Mazda2 sedan also follows news that Mazda will at last reveal its long-rumoured CX-3 compact SUV at this month’s LA Auto Show, ahead of a 2015 Australian launch.
