Originating with the introduction of the Mazda 121 in 1987, this B-segment small car was based on the Mazda D-platform. Ford also used a version of the first-generation DA 121 known as the Ford Festiva. Mazda later released the Autozam Revue in 1990 with the next generation of the D-platform DB. It was redesigned for January 1993, still based on the same DB platform. Kia also built versions of the DA and DB, both for itself and for Ford's sale as Ford Aspire in the United States which Kia sold as the Pride and Avella.

When it came to redesigning the Revue, Mazda came up with a tall hatchback, minivan-esque package (the Revue was already over 1,500 mm (59.1 in) tall). Introduced in a time full of negative press coverage, the Demio became a surprise hit for Mazda in Japan, and also foreshadows the current crop of B-segment minivans such as the Opel Meriva, Fiat Idea and the Renault Modus.

At its introduction in 1997, it won the Automotive Researchers' and Journalists' Conference Car of the Year award in Japan.

Production of the new Demio started in July 1996 (sold as the 121 outside Japan) used the DW platform. Ford retailed a version in Japan as the Ford Festiva Mini Wagon. In 1998, the Mazda logo was changed from the previous logo to the current logo. The Demio was updated in 1999 with a revised exterior, cabin air filtration, retuned automatic transmission, and available DSC due to a 2002 redesign.

The Demio was redesigned in 2002 on the DY platform. The Demio name continued in Japan, while the rest of the world dropped 121 and other names in favor of Mazda 2. Since debut, 2 has been well received by the market pushing its Japanese domestic sale to as high as 7th place.

2002–2004 Mazda 2 (DY) Genki (Australia)

The badge-engineered Ford version, the Ford Fusion, is no longer made, as Ford began importing the Ford Fiesta on the Global Ford B3 platform which is based on Mazda's DY platform. The car is produced for Europe at a Ford plant in Valencia, Spain.

All Demios come with ABS and EBD, and stability control is optional. An innovative feature offered in Japan is e-4WD, a hybrid car-type system which uses an electric motor to power the rear wheels of this front wheel drive vehicle when needed. In the Demio, this system is used only as a traction aid, not for increased fuel economy as in most other vehicles.

Three trim levels were available in Japan, each targeted by Mazda at a different demographic:

  • Cozy for single women with special paint colors and an optional canvas sunroof
  • SPORT is for young men
  • Casual focuses on young families

In Europe, trim levels were S, TS and TS2. The TS and TS2 were renamed Antares and Capella in 2004. The Japanese 1.3 and 1.5 petrol engines are not available, but Ford's 1.25-litre 16 valve Sigma engine is used, and Mazda's 1.4 (in engine block is pressed Ford Motor CO) and 1.6 petrol, plus Fords 1.4 TDCi diesel are offered, but called 1.4 CDTi by Mazda. (Virtually all the engine parts are interchangeable with the 1.4 Diesel versions of the Ford Fiesta and Ford Fusion of the same period).

The Mazda 2 is sold with a variety of Z-family engines:

Mazda Demio:

  • 1.3 L ZJ-VE I4 91 PS (67 kW; 90 hp) at 6000 rpm, 12.6 kg·m (124 N·m; 91 lb·ft) at 3500 rpm

Mazda 2:

  • 1.25 L MZI C2 70 PS (51 kW; 69 hp) at 5700 rpm, 110 N·m (81 lbf·ft) at 3500 rpm
  • 1.4 L MZI C4 80 PS (59 kW; 79 hp) at 5700 rpm, 124 N·m (91 lbf·ft) at 3500 rpm

  • 1.4 L MZ-CDTi Diesel 68 PS (50 kW; 67 hp) at 4000 rpm, 160 N·m (120 lbf·ft) at 2000 rpm

In 2004 Mazda introduced the Verisa in Japan. The Verisa is based on the Demio but targeted further upmarket. This version of the Mazda 2 takes 108mm PCD, four-stud wheels, the same as the Ford Fiesta, Fusion and Escort, though with a slightly different offset.
