The Mazda2 is one of the greats in its segment, and that’s not an easy accomplishment. This comes as no surprise though. The 2 shares its underpinnings with another of the segment’s greats, the Ford Fiesta. The 2 is somewhat more basic than the Fiesta, but as a result it is also cheaper by a couple thousand dollars, which is one of the most important things in this segment. It’s also one of the better-looking B-segments, which doesn’t hurt either. The 2 does battle with such established nameplates as the Toyota Yaris and the Honda Fit, as well as newcomers like the Chevy Sonic.
