Mazda is launching a new sweepstakes after teaming up with the new social-network craze known as Foursquare – you know that social networking app for smartphones that allows all your friends to know where you are and allows you to hold mayorships of venues and make you feel like a more important person in life.
Known as that Mazda2 Inner Driver Challenge, those that participate will have to unlock special Mazda2 badges to win an all-new 2011 Mazda2 hatchback.
How you win:
- 1. Follow Mazda on foursquare
- 2. Check-in at relevant locations to unlock any 2 of the following 3 badges: MAZDA2 Beat Junkie (concerts and music spots), MAZDA2 Style Guru (nightlife haunts, boutiques and fashion events) and MAZDA2 Button Masher (gaming competitions and retailers)
- 3. Once step 2 is complete you will automatically unlock the special MAZDA2 Inner Driver badge and learn the next, important step to easily qualify to win a brand new MAZDA2
So just follow Mazda, check-in at relevant locations to unlock 2 of the 3 badge, earn the Inner Driver badge and follow the next step. It’s a bit complicated but somewhat easy if your social-network savvy.
The only downfall is that you have to be in one of the following major cities to check in: Austin, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Washington/DC, Portland.
Refresher: Power for the 2011 Mazda2 comes from a 1.5L DOHC 16-vavle engine making 100-hp and 98 lb-ft of torque. Mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed ECVT, the Mazda2 average 29/35 mpg (city/highway). Prices for the 2011 Mazda2 start at $13,980.
