Review continues below...

In a segment as competitive as the small car class, manufacturers are under huge pressure to offer buyers fantastic value for money.

In this respect, the Mazda 2 doesn’t get off to a great start because it looks expensive next to rivals such as the Ford Fiesta, Hyundai i20 and Skoda Fabia. However, look beyond the brochure price and the 2 has a range of engines that tend to prove frugal in the real world, and trim levels that offer plenty of kit and safety features.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the Mazda 2, along with our recommendations for which of the trim levels and engines to choose.
