The Mazda 2 has a reasonably plush interior and very economical engines, when it comes to real-world fuel economy. All but the basic trim level offers a reasonable standard of equipment, too. Yet these days it has been overtaken by much newer models. Rivals that include the Seat Ibiza offer more space, better handling, a more comfortable ride, and greater refinement.

Trim: SE-L+

SE L+ adds climate control, cruise control, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a leather wrapped gearstick. It goes without Mazda’s capable infotainment system with DAB radio, though.

Engine: 1.5 75

We’re yet to try this engine, but the 89bhp from the mid-range engine already feels a bit of a struggle, so we think this smaller output might be optimistic at best.
