The Mazda2 is a subcompact hatchback about the size of the Honda Fit or Toyota Yaris.
Only the five-door version was sold here.
Power comes from a 100-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
A slick-shifting five-speed manual transmission is standard.
A four-speed automatic is optional, but it saps some power.
Handling is quite nimble, and the ride is tolerable, but the cabin is noisy.
Rear-seat room is relatively good given the size of the car.
It is related to the Ford Fiesta, but it trades some refinement and comfort in order to sell at a lower price.
2014 was the last year for the Mazda2.
