2020 Mazda 2 review: G15 Pure auto

Mazda has loaded up its smallest hatch with tech and features as age catches up with it, but is it enough to offset the sticker shock of the more expensive 2020 Mazda 2?

2018 Mazda 2 Neo sedan review

The 2018 Mazda 2 sedan is the more practical option over the hatch, but is the Neo the sweet spot in the range?

2018 Mazda 2 GT automatic review

2020 Mazda 2 Walkaround

Scott Collie takes us through a walkaround of the hotly-anticipated 2020 Mazda 2 city car.

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...

Not everyone wants the cheapest city car they can afford. To find out which small car is worth spending (relatively) big money on, we pitch the new Volkswagen Polo 85TSI Comfortline against the flagship Mazda 2 GT. If the Volkswagen Polo hasn’t been the biggest vehicle in the city car segment, it has always been one of the most grown-up...

2018 Honda Jazz VTi-S v Mazda 2 Maxx v Suzuki Swift GL Nav comparison

Compact cars – not the most exciting segment in the motoring world is it? If you agreed with that statement, you’d be overlooking the fact that there is currently more value for money than ever before in this highly competitive city car segment...

The safest cars for young drivers under $30,000 in Australia

Buying a new car is an exciting yet arduous process – more so when it's your first time jumping through the hoops. While key factors such as style, performance and price are usually top of mind, given that novice drivers are over-represented in fatal crashes – due to a combination of inexperience and older, cheaper and less safe cars – safety should also make the list of priorities...

The replacement for the long-running Mazda 2 city car in Europe could be a rebadged version of the Toyota Yaris, if a new report is to be believed.

2017 Mazda 2 Genki review

The Mazda 2 caught my eye after I had seen its 2017 mild update. Several months later, the little pocket rocket has been in my family for about a year and a half now. It's endured many experiences in that time and has revealed the good and the not-so-good things about it. My Mum and I decided to choose the Genki for its suitable interior trim and the features offered...

2010 Mazda 2 Neo review

I feel I should preface this with a confession on my part: mainly that I don’t own, nor have I ever owned, a Mazda 2. Instead, I merely rented one over the course of time that I was on holiday in New Zealand. Though this is the case, I feel that after driving 1400km and spending over 18 hours behind the wheel, I got to know the car pretty well and thought I’d fling in my two cents on it...

2015 Mazda 2 Neo review

I bought my Mazda 2 two years ago coming from a Mazda 3 SP25. I decided to get a smaller and more efficient car, while also getting something newer in warranty. Originally when shopping for cars, I was interested in a Skoda Fabia, but because of a punchier engine and a better deal, I decided on the Mazda 2...

2008 Mazda 2 Maxx review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. Once upon a time, I found myself sitting at a bus stop on the side of the road, staring off into the distance dreaming about one day owning a V8 Commodore. The next car that stopped in front of me was not only far from it, but almost as far away as you could possibly get – a 2008 Mazda 2 hatchback...
