Mazda 2 - An awesome car

published

The best car I have driven. Really smooth and powerful. Very stable and got a comfortable feel. enjoying the luxury of a good car without paying an arm and leg for it. The look is very slick and modern. Thinking of changing my second car to a Mazda too. 100% recommend this car.

My Mazda 2 is the best car I have ever owned. It was my first 'Brand New' Car and it didn't let me down. So compact and easy to park. Sound system is fantastic. The standard tyres are remarkable and lasted so long. Comfortable for long trips. plenty of legroom in the back. Easy press button hatch opening. Great first car for young one or little zippy runaround for busy nana!

Love this car so much!

published

This car is amazing. I have found it to be very reliable and economic. Having the sedan definitely provides a lot more boot space, and a small amount of room in the back seats. It has a nice interior. I have found the driving experience to be of high standard, however you still have a bit of noise that you would expect from a medium priced car.
Overall, I have found this car to be my perfect first car, and have loved driving it.

Love it

The Mazda 2 is a great small car and the perfect first car. The front passenger seat has a lot more legroom than you would expect, as to the back seats. It is quite fuel efficient and is very reliable. Is also extremely quiet making the driving experience great. Love it.

One of the most affordable cars I have driven

published

I got this car 5 years ago and still feels like a new car when I drive. great fuel consumption and the interior is way better than some small cars in the market. this car has a generous boot space too. i drove this to Melbourne and didn't even feel like i drove 800kms.

Little awesome zippy car!

published

The car handles well since it's quite small. It can be agile when there are not many passengers, but you can easily feel the extra weight when you go to accelerate if you have 3 or more people in the car. Nonetheless I've had no issues with this model so far.

Awesome little car

published

We replaced our Mazda 323 in 20014, and it was absolutely a surprise to find a small hatch with plenty of leg room, good sized boot, and all the nifty features I never had in my previous Mazda.The fuel economy is great, even with Adelaide's high fuel costs.I love the fact that it zips into small spaces in the shopping centre, sometimes I don't realise its still running if I have the radio on and waiting at the lights, "so quiet " I would recommend this fantastic little car to anyone especially older persons looking for an affordable little car.

Great Mazda Service, Solid feel built car.

published

Was looking to replace my written off Honda Jazz, but went to compare the Madza just to see and felt it was built better overall for the same price range. Performance is slightly underpowered for it's weight but the handling is great. The car feels solid which reduces the road and engine noise. Basic service is nearly $290 from the dealer so i take it to my trusty qualified mechanic for around $150. Note you do not have to get your car serviced at the dealer to keep your warranty, just as long as your mechanic is licensed and use genuine parts.
The car design inside is great, but the exterior is abit dull compare to other cars in it's class.

I love this car!!

published

Brand new 2017 Maxx model, gorgeous colour and a dream to drive. Plenty of headroom in the front for adults and I am quite tall. The back is really for children or babies. The seats are comfortable. Mine is an automatic and it handles very well and takes off well from stopped. Fuel consumption is very economical. The rear camera is great, an excellent safety feature. I find the i-stop annoying (the engine cuts out and restarts automatically when stopped in traffic) but it might work well when driving in the city. My previous Mazda was reliable, economical and good to drive and this one is a step up.

Perfect small car.

published

Purchased second hand my Mazda 2 is incredibly cheap on petrol and runs smoothly. One of the quietest cars I've driven and also the easiest to drive and park. It may look small from the outside but is actually quite spacious inside. It does hit potholes quite hard though but I try to avoid them anyway.

Perfect for my needs

published

Purchased a used 2013 Mazda 2 to replace my previously crashed old car, and it has been great. No issues so far, runs smoothly and looks pretty. I haven't used the boot or the back seats much though, so unable to comment. From what I can tell, it has decent fuel mileage but haven't counted exactly.

Mazda 2 sedan

published

I purchased the sedan as I wanted boot space and ease of accessing the boot that did not involve having to reach my arms far, as required with a hatch. The car size is good. We purchased rear sensors, as did not come with any! This car is easy to drive, including having a small turning circle. The car does not have automatic lights or wiper settings. The head space in the back is an issue for 5' 9" son. Petrol consumption is good. Take off from standing is slow, breaks are reliable / satisfactory.
