Mazda2 Overview

The Mazda2 is a subcompact hatchback that is powered by a 100-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The standard manual transmission shifted slickly, but the optional four-speed automatic saps some zip. Handling is quite nimble and the ride is tolerable, but the cabin lets in too much road and engine noise. Rear-seat room is relatively good. It is related to the Ford Fiesta, but in exchange for a lower price the Mazda2 gives up some refinement and comfort. A redesign is due in 2015..

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
