3 & 5 doors

The Mazda2 is available in three and five-door bodystyles, and both offer a stylish design that hints at the car's sporty potential. There are 1.3 and 1.5-litre petrol engines – but no diesel – yet all offer decent performance and fuel economy. The suspension is quite firm, so the Mazda2 handles well, but this comes at the expense of comfort. The interior has lots of black plastic, but most models come well equipped, with all getting air-conditioning, a CD player and electric front windows. The Mazda2 is a small car, but is relatively practical, although it suffers from a high boot lip that makes the boot hard to load.
