The Top Gear car review:Mazda Mazda2

Overall verdict
If you like driving, and like small cars, you'll love the Mazda 2.


Clever engineering creates a satisfying driver-focused supermini


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.
