The Top Gear car review:Mazda Mazda2
For:Clever engineering creates a satisfying driver-focused supermini
Against:Expensive diesel, it might be too 'mini' for some
What is it?
The third generation of Mazda’s dinky little 2, which carries on where the tidy outgoing car left off. While its silhouette is almost identical, it’s a smidge longer than the car it replaces, and carries the firm’s current distinctive front end design (which is particularly) striking in range-topping Sport Nav guise). It ushers in a range of frugal and clever ‘SKYACTIV’ engines.
