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.

GT Sport trim level adds a reversing camera, a heated leather steering wheel, heated front seats, a head-up display and a choice of blue, grey or black leather inserts. Due to the price jump, we find it hard to recommend the top trim levels over SE-L with the more powerful engine.
