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.

get the best price

SE-L is well-equipped for an entry-level model; it features automatic headlights, cruise control, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, but is only offered with the least powerful engine.

We’re yet to try the entry-level 74bhp version, but we think it will simply be too underpowered for most drivers.
