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...

2016 Mazda 2 Sedan Review

There’s always been something a little NQR (not quite right) about baby sedans based on city-sized hatchbacks. Fortunately, with the arrival of the new Mazda 2 sedan, that’s no longer the case. Booted versions of most brands’ smallest models typically have awkward proportions, often failing to blend the donor hatches’ sharply rising beltlines with their high-set boots, and exaggerated overhangs, with any sort of aesthetic nous...

City car comparison : Mazda 2 v Volkswagen Polo v Toyota Yaris v Honda Jazz v Renault Clio

In the past few months, fresh technology once the reserve of expensive premium cars has made a final cascade to one of the most affordable classes – light hatchbacks. The ‘cascade effect’ is nothing new in the automotive industry, where advanced equipment starts only in the priciest cars and eventually filters down into cheaper models as years go by...
