Conclusion

It's not hard to see why the spunky yet refined Mazda 2 was such a huge hit abroad when the last generation debuted in 2007. Three years later, this lightly updated version is less of a revelation but is still a very credible addition to what has become a very competitive field. The 2 may lack the do-it-all versatility of the Fit or the high-tech sophistication of the ritzier Fiesta, but it brings a solid combination of driving engagement, maturity, and value. Needless to say, we're glad Mazda's decided to crash the subcompact party.

Even as a driver's econobox, the interior is pleasant for passengers. The tall interior package offers adequate rear headroom and ample rear legroom for sub-six-footers, who'll find lots of space for their feet under the front seats, though probably with knees pointed up. The driver's and front-passenger's environment is light and airy, with a big picture window in front, not overly raked, so the dashboard doesn't look like it belongs in a minivan. The dropoff of the hatch lid below the rear window will have you learning parallel parking parameters by trial and error, however.

Mazda is marketing the 2 as the sport coupe of four-door hatchback b-cars, more Mini than family-style Fiesta or sub-MPV Honda Fit and Nissan Versa. It's certainly among the most fun to drive cars in this class. For the portion of those 23 American small-car lovers who aren't quite as concerned about carrying rear-seat passengers and their luggage, the Mazda2 is the better, cheaper alternative to the highly hyped and likely to be in short-supply Fiesta.

2011 Mazda 2 Full Test and Video

The Mediocre Middle Man on a Miserly Mission

What Works:

As-advertised fuel economy, roomy enough for hauling actual humans, less costly than some of its competition.

What Needs Work:
Lacks the utility and features of its strongest competition.

Bottom Line:
An adequate commuter with legit room for four. And not much else.

Upgraded Mazda 2 revealed
Quote:
Mazda has released the first official pictures of its facelifted 2 supermini, which will be launched at next month’s Paris motor show.

The front styling has been given Mazda’s new ‘family face’, including a new front grille and fog light surrounds, while the interior has also been upgraded.

All engines in the Mazda 2 line-up have been made Euro 5 compliant and a new automatic version has been introduced into the range.

Changes have also been made to the 2’s chassis to boost ride comfort.

Would have been awesome if it was RWD.
I'm hoping the new RWD Mazda concept carries this motor but in RWD platform- it's got nice torque for an i4.

Having actually driven this car I have to admit it's a lot of fun which is something that cannot be said for a lot of other cars. I thinks it's currently the best option in the small car segment.

Update!

Mazda Demio Smart Stylish
Quote:
Based on the new ultra-efficient Skyactiv 1.3-liter model, the Smart Stylish gets a complete aerodynamic overhaul, with new front and rear bumpers as well as side skits and some large BBS wheels. Bringing the package together is a lowered suspension.

My mother-in-law just got one. Toyota's offering in the same class (Yaris) was more expensive and had less to offer. I'm quite ok with her choice.
