2009 Mazda Active2 Surf & Snow Special Concepts

California is of the only states in the Union where action sports enthusiasts can make the most of crashing waves and fresh powder, so the Los Angeles Auto Show was the only logical location for Mazda to unveil two of its customized compact Mazda2 models. The Active2 Surf & Snow Special Concepts cater to the needs of those individuals who get their thrills riding one in to the beach or down the mountainside with a set of bindings connecting them to their board, these two new concepts offer a bit more fun than your standard subcompact offering.

Mazda Active2 Surf & Snow Special Concepts

The Active2 Surf is covered in a coat of Spirited Green paint and features a more aggressive front bumper and side skirts to go along with the white multi spoke 17 inch wheels and Active2 graphics that adorn the Mazda2 in graphite and white. The Active2 Snow is appropriately painted in Frozen White with an array of number 2s covering the front fender that houses an anthracite set of rims. Both models come with a rugged Thule roof rack system complete with matching snowboards or a surfboard made from lightweight carbon fiber.

The Active2 Snow exterior showcases a more aggressive front bumper and rocker. The Active2 Snow exterior is way too cool!

Lol... Mazda had a multipurpose car? I haven’t heard of that before. But, I think that its great. Its a great car specially for guys like me who enjoys taking a dive or two in some mountain to have a taste of some fresh powder. You never know how crowded it really gets if you’d be sticking your skis in your compartment.

this must be the multi-purpose Mazda2?!

IMO mazda should take this one into production, it’s a good concept vehicle and for sure many surfers want to get their hands on this Eco-Friendly car.

As a sports concept, yeah I’m okay with it but I guess it’s not a good concept at all. I find it so simple but I will give it an "A" for effort. The hatchback pairs seems good and I think it will be good if the green Active 2 matte will be change to blue or light blue matte.

Design-wise, they did a great job. But we can only tell how perfect a car is after being actually tested on the landscapes where it is supposed to excel. Looking at the cars, they have really improved the subcompact offering. The wheels are and the bumper is better.
