The Mazda 2 is a small compact car that packs a big punch and can more than hold its own in a very competitive corner of the motoring market. It is Japanese through and through and offers a fun filled driving experience, great looks on newer models and sprightly performance that keeps you entertained. In short, it’s really rather good.
The first generation was released in 1996, and its huge success led to an array of upgrades which have proved just as popular, if not more. Also known as the Demio, the Mazda 2 has always been about affordable motoring and it certainly offers it in spades without sacrificing quality. It’s a great alternative to more expensive models from the likes of VW and Ford.
It’s available in both hatchback and small saloon models, both are very stylish indeed. A decent amount of boot space in addition to room in the back for a pair of (small) adults means it’s practical too. There’s more good news when it comes to the interior which is neat and tidy with an excellent finish- just what you’d expect from a Mazda.
Since the start, the Mazda 2 has always been great to drive and the range of small but lively petrol and diesel engines deliver a solid amount of performance and decent fuel economy. In terms of running costs you’ll be looking at a very small amount, which is what this model is all about.
While it won’t exactly break the bank to buy brand new, there’s always a chance to make big savings with used cars for sale. Indeed you can get a superb deal on a second hand Mazda 2 at Motors.co.uk. Finding a bargain is so easy and the selection available means you can find this excellent little car in a range of colours, models and specs.
So if you’re after a small car that’s affordable, great to drive and looks very stylish, the Mazda 2 should be one of the first to consider. You get a lot of bang for your buck, and the trademark Mazda reliability means you can have total confidence.
