The Mazda 2 is a small car that is easy to drive and well-equipped. If only it was a bit cheaper…

Why not test drive the Mazda 2 yourself at a dealer near you?

There’s big business to be found in the supermini market (the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and Volkswagen Polo are some of the most popular cars in the UK), so Mazda certainly needed to pull out all of the stops with the new Mazda 2.

Mercifully, all the signs suggest the Mazda 2 is worthy of your consideration. As well as being distinctive to look at inside and out, the Mazda 2 is also noteworthy for being well-priced, affordable to run and very enjoyable to drive in cities and out on the open road.

The Mazda 2 is just as good as the Mazda 3, only smaller and more affordable

Though the Mazda 2 range does look a bit expensive at first glance, the premium is offset by the surprisingly good levels of standard equipment on offer and even basic SE trim comes with air-conditioning.

For a more in-depth appraisal of the Mazda 2, read the interior, practicality, driving and specifications sections of our review over the following pages to see if the Mazda 2 still has what it takes to tussle with the best of the alternatives.
