Review

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: Black+ Edition

The Black+ Edition adds a few cosmetic tweaks to the SE L Nav+, including 16in black alloy wheels, a black rear roof spoiler and privacy glass.

Engine: 1.5

Out of the three naturally aspirated 1.5-litre petrol engines, the mid-range 89bhp Skyactiv-G version is a popular choice. Lacking a turbocharger, you do need to rev the engine hard to make good progress on motorways. Around town this is less of an issue and it feels responsive enough.
