City drivers don’t require a special vehicle, but they will appreciate something that is easy to handle and maneuver around tight curves, small parking stalls, and doesn’t burn through a tank of gas when caught up in stop-and-go traffic. The Mazda2 is an ideal solution compared to most other city cars because it still holds true to the Mazda performance stylings and handling. Learn how and why this car stands tall against the rising competition in this 2015 Mazda2 test drive overview.

For 2015, the Mazda2 has grown slightly longer and now is more comfortable than the rest. If you find yourself stuck in traffic for hours or if you’re taking a long distance road trip, either way, you won’t feel cooped up in a car like this. The interior of the Mazda2 has been designed to be comfortable and accommodating; buttons and controls on the steering wheel and dash are within reach and simple to function. The overall feel also is a step up from years past, now resembling something more like the stylish Mazda3 sedan.

Drivers will find both fuel-saving as well as infotainment technologies.

Even with the interior and exterior improvements, the 2015 Mazda2 is still affordable and value-packed–something that is highly expected, but not always delivered, within the subcompact, city-driving segment. Also, we do want to give mention, that also despite primarily focusing on city driving, the Mazda2 does just as well when you let it rip on the open road. The 2015 model is not yet available, but the 2014 model is a clear indicator of efficiency, achieving a fuel economy rating of 29 city/ 35 hwy mpg.

Overall the handling of the Mazda2, when taken through urban settings and allowed to let loose on the open road, is going to be enjoyable and more energetic than most because of its rivaled dynamic driving.
