What You Will Like

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.

Introduction

Mazda2 is a five-seat subcompact hatchback, with front-wheel drive and eye-catching style. After earning numerous product awards in the European and Asian markets, the Mazda2 was launched in the U.S. as a 2011 model.

New for 2013 was a USB port for the Mazda2's standard audio system. Nothing has changed for the 2014 model year, apart from three new color choices.

A soft wedge shape defines the Mazda2. It's bold and sporty with sculpted sides, body-colored door handles, a laid-back windshield, and sloped hatch. A jaunty little spoiler sits at the rear of the Touring model. Up front, a big, grinning front grille leads into an attractive hood, fenders, headlamps, bumper, and air intakes. All Mazda2 hatchbacks ride on 15-inch wheels.

The Mazda2 uses a well-proven 1.5-liter, double-overhead-cam, 16-valve four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing. to give it more flexibility in delivering low-rpm torque and high-rpm horsepower. It's paired with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

In pursuit of good gas mileage, acceleration and responsive handling, Mazda focused on keeping the car light, by using high-strength steel with more welds (and less steel overall), augmented by weld-bonded adhesives in the body. Engineers looked for dozens of places to save a few pounds; for example the wiring harness, door locks and latches, radiator, automatic transmission shifter, pedals, and even the stereo speakers.

As a result, the 2014 Mazda2 is the lightest subcompact sold in America: even lighter than the smaller Fiat 500, and way lighter than the Ford Fiesta, although the Toyota Yaris runs a close second to Mazda's smallest.

The hatchback's svelte 2306-pound curb weight (2359 with automatic) helps it achieve an EPA-estimated 29/35 mpg City/Highway with the manual gearbox, or 28/34 mpg with the automatic.

Mazda2's 100 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque are not big numbers, but there is plenty of power for everyday driving and the Mazda2 is way fun to drive. We liked the thick, sporty steering wheel and responsive steering. Shifting the manual 5-speed is slick and easy and brake feel and performance are good. Mazda2 rides smoothly, and its small footprint makes it easy to maneuver and park in city traffic.

Seats are comfortable and supportive. The Mazda2 is relatively roomy for four, but five is a crowd. Fold the rear seats down and it offers an excellent 27.8 cubic feet of cargo space, with easy access through the hatchback.

Available accessories for the 2014 Mazda2 are geared toward weekend warriors and include a roof rack, roof basket, cargo box, bike rack, ski rack, snowboard rack, surfboard rack, and kayak carrier.

Partly because mini-size hatchbacks are less popular in the U.S. market than in other parts of the world, the Mazda2 has been a bit slower to catch on at American dealerships. Mazda's compact-size Mazda3, offered as either a sedan or a hatchback, bests the "2" by a substantial margin.

Competitors to the Mazda2 are numerous, and include a roster of small hatchbacks: Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Versa Note, Honda Fit, and Hyundai Accent, as well as the newly-reworked Kia Soul. All of these, with the exception of the Fiesta, beat the Mazda2 on rear legroom. The Fiesta offers similarly sporty driving dynamics. The Sonic is also available with a more powerful, turbocharged engine.

Lineup

The 2014 Mazda2 is available in two trim levels: Sport and Touring. All use a 1.5-liter inline-4 engine that makes 100 horsepower and 98 pound-feet of torque. Both can be equipped with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Mazda2 Sport manual ($14,720) and automatic ($15,560) models come standard with cloth upholstery; air conditioning with pollen filter; a tilt steering wheel; reclining front bucket seats with manually-adjustable driver's seat; 60/40 split folding rear seats; remote keyless entry; power windows, mirrors and door locks; and a four-speaker audio system with CD player, USB port and auxiliary audio jack. Steel 15-inch wheels have full covers.

Mazda2 Touring manual ($16,210) and automatic ($17,050) variants get upgraded cloth upholstery with red piping, leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, cruise control, a trip computer, a six-speaker audio system, rear roof spoiler, fog lamps, chrome exhaust tips and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Options include auto-dimming rearview mirror with compass and Homelink ($295), white pearl paint ($200). Bluetooth wireless for hands-free cellphone operation ($275) is available, as well as a rear bumper guard ($80), cargo net ($50), and center console with armrest ($170). Available accessories include a bike rack, a roof rack, a roof basket, an interior cargo box, side sill extensions, ski rack, snowboard rack, surfboard rack, and a kayak carrier.

Safety equipment includes frontal airbags, side-impact and side curtain air bags, stability control, traction control, front disc brakes and rear drum brakes with ABS, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist.

Walkaround

Styling of the Mazda2 is fresh, and eye-catching in a cute sort of way. We do not like the grinning toothless grille, which may be on the way out, judging by newer Mazda models.

Mazda2 presents a soft wedge shape with trimmed corners, a sweet hatchback slope, and a slippery 0.31 coefficient of drag. The side view is sporty and sculptured, with body-colored door handles and a laid-back windshield. The halogen headlamp units flow from the gentle bulge of the front fenders. A wide upswept character line climbs back and up from the front wheel wells.

The hood, fenders, headlamps, bumper, air intakes and 15-inch wheels are all well done, adding character. Touring models have a jaunty little spoiler and foglamps.

Interior

Seats are comfortable and supportive, with a rugged and sporty fabric, adding red piping on the Touring model. The three-spoke steering wheel works well, with a meaty rim that makes the Mazda2 feel almost like a sports car, and a padded hub. We think it might look better without all that aluminum-like plastic trim on the wide spokes, but no big deal. It tilts for adjustment, and the driver's seat raises and lowers, so almost anyone can find a good position behind the wheel.

Aluminum-colored plastic Mazda calls silver garnish adorns vents, armrests, shift knob and gate, where it looks good in sparing doses.

The shifter, whether manual or automatic, rises from just below the instrument panel where the center console would be if there was one. There's a console with storage tray and cupholders that goes between the seats, with an optional leather-padded armrest that we found nice to have. It's no stretch at all to shift gears. The 5-speed stick is easy to reach and fun to use.

The dashboard flows in a continuous line and curves away from occupants, making the cabin feel wide. Certainly there's lots of elbow room. Mazda engineers worked carefully on the position and cross-sectional shape of the A-pillars, which, along with a low beltline, enable clear forward visibility and also help the car feel roomy.

The cluster of three gauges in front of the driver's eyes is shaded by an eave, with the speedometer in center, smaller tachometer on the left, and the rest in one gauge on the right. In the center of the dashboard there's a large round binnacle with sound system information, a CD slot, and three dials for the climate control. A USB port for the audio system is included. The Touring model has audio controls on the steering wheel, but they're easy to reach on the dash panel of the Sport.

Rear-seat legroom is slim compared to other cars in its class; only the Ford Fiesta has less. Cargo capacity is 13.3 cubic feet behind the 60/40 split folding second seat, and 27.8 cubic feet with the second seat folded flat.

Driving Impressions

The 1.5-liter engine in the Mazda2 is one of the smallest gasoline engines on the U.S. market, but its performance is exciting for its size. We drove the 5-speed manual version, and had doubts that Mazda's 4-speed automatic would be quite as much fun. But it's perhaps more practical for stop-and-go city driving, and will doubtless satisfy plenty of Mazda2 owners who aren't all that interested in shifting manually.

The engine pulls well at lower revs and comes on stronger at 4000 rpm where the torque peaks. It sounds good above 4000, and zings responsively all the way up to the 6300-rpm redline. It's not exactly gutless, but it doesn't have the oomph of the Ford Fiesta's 1.6-liter engine with its 119 horsepower.

At 75 or 80 mph, the Mazda2 is smooth. The brakes have a nice responsive feel, and stop the lightweight car quickly. Vented discs are used in front, drums in the rear, with ABS, brake force distribution and Brake Assist.

The suspension is fairly conventional, with MacPherson struts in front and a trailing-arm torsion beam in back. We drove the Mazda2 over twisty two-lanes on the California coast, and found that it cornered flat and sucked up most bumps. The electric power steering reacts quickly.

In a subsequent test of an automatic Mazda2, the transmission delivered curt, crisp gear changes, just noticeable enough to keep the driver aware. Acceleration was modest, both from start-up and when passing/merging, but the automatic Mazda2 is still an enjoyable little runabout.

Summary

Mazda2 is a good choice in the subcompact segment for those looking for sporty driving dynamics and distinctive design. However, other competitors offer more rear legroom and better overall value for the money.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
