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.

Entry-level SE-L trim is fairly well equipped, with automatic LED headlights, cruise control, climate control, automatic wipers and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system. If you opt for the 89bhp engine, it also includes automatic emergency braking (AEB) and other safety features.

We've yet to drive the 74bhp variant (only available with entry-level SE-L trim) but it's likely to be too underpowered for most drivers. We'd recommend going for the 88bhp option.
