Small size, low price, high-quality materials inside and out, excellent handling, great fuel economy
The 2014 Mazda2 is aimed directly at dominating the subcompact economy car market, taking on competitors such as the Chevrolet Aveo, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit and Nissan Versa. Like the competition, the car offers a pared down feature set, an engine that makes around 100 horsepower, and excellent fuel economy numbers. Unlike the competition, the Mazda2 offers surprisingly sporty handling, a roomy and practical interior, standard keyless entry, stability and traction control, and a USB-outlet-equipped stereo.
