The Mazda2 is a smartly styled supermini that possesses a well-designed and comfortable cabin. This practical little car is cost-effective to run too, and features plenty of standard-issue equipment. If you require a compact five-seater that delivers an especially urban-friendly motoring experience, the Mazda2 is well worth taking a closer look at.
The Mazda2 is sporty, compact and classless. Mazda’s KODO design language plays with shadow and light, using curves and lines in interesting ways. The result is a unique small car that turns heads wherever it goes.
Powered by a 1.5L Skyactiv-G petrol engine, the Mazda2 delivers the perfect blend of performance and economy. It’s a comfortable and nippy cruiser, with cruise control fitted as standard and Lane-Keep Assist on SE-L Nav models.
There’s space for five passengers and a decent-sized boot. With the rear seats up, the boot has a 280-litre load volume, expanding to 960-litres if you fold down the 60-40 split-folding rear seats. Twin ISOFIX mounting points can be found on the back row.
Living with it
The Mazda2 is a pleasure. It’s quiet, comfortable and safe. It keeps you fully connected, makes access easy with keyless entry, and makes parking easy with parking sensors and a rear-view camera on GT Sport Nav models.
The Mazda2 is very safe for passengers of all ages. This is because it features numerous protective features such as multiple airbags and seatbelt reminders – and rear-seated children are kept extra secure due to the presence of ISOFIX anchorage points. Several useful driver aids are included too, such as Dynamic Stability Control. This helpful piece of kit autonomously harnesses engine torque and braking pressure, making it as easy as possible for the driver to keep control of the vehicle in a variety of situations.
