Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

The Mazda 2 gives you a good range of adjustment to the seat and steering wheel, including height adjustment on all versions, so even tall drivers should be able to find a good posture. The seat cushions are quite hard, though, and are not the most comfortable on longer journeys. 

That controller makes operating the infotainment system a doddle on the move and is far less distracting than the pure touchscreen systems that you’ll find in some rival small cars

Opting for Sport trim or above upgrades the infotainment system, so you get wireless Apple CarPlay, making it even easier to connect your iPhone. Android Auto isn’t available with wireless connectivity, but that’s the case with rivals, too.

Quality

The interior is a pleasant place to be on the whole, with soft-touch materials that feel quite classy on top of the dashboard. Adding to that feel, all versions of the 2 come with a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearknob, both of which are nice to hold. 

Accompanying those trim pieces are a fair amount of lower-rent scratchy plastics that lower the tone, especially in the cheaper trims. Those hard plastics aren’t as well hidden as they are in the Ford Fiesta

GT Sport Tech offers a choice of different interior finishes, including black or stone leather inlays to provide a more enticing and upmarket feel.
