Used Mazda 2 2015-present
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Mazda 2 hatchback?

The Ford Fiesta really ought to be included in the dictionary definition of a small car. Its drive, engine range, economy are all top of the class, with weaknesses being few and far between. The interior shows its age though, with a confusing myriad of buttons.

The Hyundai i20 is big on the inside, well made and well equipped. It has a bit of a jittery ride, though, and won't get quite as far on a gallon of petrol.

The Skoda Fabia is a fine driver with a large range of efficient engines. Interior quality isn’t the best and the low-speed ride is firm, but the whole package is hard to beat.
