What used Mazda 2 hatchback will I get for my budget?
Prices for the Mazda 2 begin at around £6000 for an early 2015 example with a 1.5-litre with a petrol engine. The higher-specification SE-L cars are quite popular and you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one, priced from around £6500. SE-L Navs will cost you from £7500 and Sport Navs from £8000. The highest-spec GT and GT Sport come in at £11,000 or more.
Diesel-engined 2s are fewer in number and command a premium; you will need at least £7500 to get one. Only if you do a high mileage will the diesel’s greater fuel economy be good enough to justify the expense, though.
