2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report five – Team review

It's been a couple of months since we took delivery of our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer, and in that time it's been driven by numerous CarAdvice employees. So far we've covered urban commuting, infotainment, along with interior comfort and practicality. However we haven't really heard from the wider team...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report four – Interior comfort and practicality

Our Mazda 2 Neo has settled in quite nicely at the CarAdvice Melbourne office, proving to be an ideal vehicle to commute to and from the inner city. However, there have been numerous occasions where the Red Rocket has been called on to do more load-lugging duties, and for many buyers of this car you will likely have the odd occasion where a few passengers or luggage will be stuffed in the back of the little hatch...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long-term report three – Infotainment

Our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo long-termer certainly has a lot of strengths, including its cute looks, zippy drivetrain, and its comfortable driving experience. However, one major drawback  of the entry-level model is its infotainment system – or lack of. Unlike higher-spec versions of the little hatch and sedan, the Neo grade misses out on Mazda's MZD Connect infotainment system, which incorporates a 7...

2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch review: Long term report two – The daily grind

It's been a month now since we took delivery of our 2017 Mazda 2 Neo hatch long termer, and for this update we're going to focus on one of the most important jobs a city-sized car will ever do – the #DailyGrind. While that term can mean many things to different people, the daily commute for the average person is the trip to and from work, which the little 'Soul Red' Mazda 2 has been tasked with just about every day since it arrived...

Toyota Yaris v Mazda2 comparison

See the full article here. Light cars are a strange category in Australia. While sales are on the nose, buyers still flock to this segment in the hunt for a first, or last car. With both models recently benefitting from an update, we lined up two favourites to see which is most worthy of your hard-earned dollar...

2017 Mazda 2 review

The 2017 Mazda 2 hatch and sedan have arrived, adding AEB and G-Vectoring across the range, alongside a brand new GT flagship variant. But the big-selling Japanese offering also must face a stronger competitor set than ever, so does this running change do enough?

2015 Mazda 2 Genki Review

The Mazda 2 is consistently a top three seller in the light car segment, battling it out with the Hyundai i20 and the Toyota Yaris. In fact you could argue that among private buyers, it is the most popular car in its segment. And better yet, the 2015 Mazda 2 is a new car, inside and out. Compared to the previous generation, it’s bigger...

Mazda 2 Old v New Comparison: Second-generation Maxx v third-generation Maxx

The all-new Mazda 2 launches into a segment that includes names like Jazz, Yaris, Fiesta and Polo. But just how much has changed since its predecessor, and is it enough to justify an upgrade? Now in its third generation, the new Mazda 2 builds on the modern styling and engaging drive of the highly successful second-generation...

Toyota Yaris v Mazda 2 comparison

Light cars are a strange category in Australia. While sales are on the nose, buyers still flock to this segment in the hunt for a first, or last car. With both models recently benefitting from an update, we lined up two favourites to see which is most worthy of your hard-earned dollar. It’s the Mazda 2 Genki head-to-head against the Toyota Yaris ZR...

Mazda 2 Genki v Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo comparison

Light car sales may be down an alarming 16 per cent this year, but they’re still big business. Here we pitch two of the better contenders against each other, one a new kid on the block and the other a well-established leader of the pack. They are the newly launched Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo — a niche player known by relatively few — and the well-loved Mazda 2 Genki, consistently one of the top sellers in this class...

Mazda 2 Old v New Comparison: Second-generation Maxx v third-gen Maxx

The all-new Mazda 2 represents the latest and greatest in Mazda's light car arsenal. But, is it worth an upgrade from the old car?

2015 Mazda 2 Neo Review

I never thought I could fall in love with a car - that was untill I purchased my Mazda 2 sedan 8 months ago. For people considering of buying a small car it should be at the top of your list for these reasons. The car has plenty of pickup for a round town and the little 1.5L is acceptable for highway cruising but you have to think and plan before over taking...

2008 Mazda 2 Genki Review

Oh yes, the Mazda 2. First things first, the model I selected isn't correct, since Finland has completely different versions. As me and my wife needed a second car, we thought it has to be cheap. So, 5000 Euros later, we got the Mazda. And we didn't even drive anything else. It was so good...

2010 Mazda 2 Neo Review

I've written a few Owner reviews for my last couple of cars, including a Fiesta ST and GH Mazda6. Now I've had a few before that, including a 2007 Mazda2 Maxx auto which was written off, which makes for an interesting comparison to my latest acquisition. I lost my off street parking and am forced to fight the tight streets of the inner-East of Sydney...

2012 Mazda 2 Neo Review

Nippy, good looking little car, comfortable, expensive to service, although all modern car builders continue hell bent on building their healthy maintenance margins on the backs of their customers. The Mazda 2 does most things pretty well, although ours is a little bit noisy in the mornings with squeaky rear shocks...
