The Mazda Hazumi Concept will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, but images of the car have slipped out a day early.

Mazda’s current design language has clearly been adopted by the concept, which is meant to foreshadow the upcoming Mazda2 subcompact. The headlights and front-end design mimic the new Mazda6 quite closely, suggesting that this concept is relatively close to production form.

The new Mazda2 will use the brand’s SkyActiv suite of technologies which all come together to save fuel, and make the car lighter. It will ride on a shortened version of the CX-5 small crossover platform, which also suggests that it might use a down-tuned version of the CX-5′s 2.0-liter engine. Another engine possibility is the 1.3-liter four cylinder that the brand uses in the Japaneses version of the Mazda2.

The production version of the new Mazda2 is expected to debut in the spring of 2014 as a model year 2015 vehicle.
