Mazda’s supermini has long been on UK roads, but the most recent Mazda 2 model utilises Mazda Skyactiv philosophy that sees the Japanese manufacturer reduce kerb weight and gain more powertrain efficiency for a smoother and more efficient ride. Available in either petrol or diesel 1.50litre engines, there’s a number of trim options to choose from to keep any car owner happy. A fine signature grille and sweeping body lines give the Mazda a sporty but premium appearance. The interior is equally impressive with a sleek and ergonomic dashboard full of plenty of technology and driving features.
There’s six trims to select from with the entry-level option offering USB connectivity, hill-start assistant, air conditioning and a sports roof spoiler. Upgrades to technology such as DAB, Bluetooth and satellite navigation are all affordable and add great value to the car and driver.
Retailing with 62.8MPG combined and a £20 a year road tax, the Mazda 2 is extremely economical to run for commuting, long distance driving and just short journeys around town. A rock-solid reliability record from Mazda and a long history of delivering well-built cars provides reassurance and satisfaction to would-be owners.
