The Mazda 2’s handling is safe and dependable, making the car closer in character to the VW Polo, rather than the more entertaining Ford Fiesta. Mazda’s G-Vectoring control is standard and shuffles power between the front wheels in order to improve handling and comfort, but it’s undetectable. To be fair, that’s exactly how Mazda intended it to be.
Ultimately, the 2’s steering is accurate enough and consistent, and the body stays largely stable around corners, but you wouldn’t describe the 2 as being fun to drive. Ultimately, it just doesn’t feel particularly engaging, a feeling exacerbated by steering that never offers much communication.
