Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

The subcompact five-seat Mazda2 arrived stateside in 2011 as Mazda's newest entry-level offering. It's only available as a hatchback and is slotted below the Mazda3. The Honda Fit is a major Mazda2 competitor, as are a host of other small cars, from the Ford Fiesta and Chevy Sonic to the Toyota Yaris. The Mazda2 comes in Sport and Touring trim levels. New for 2013 The Mazda2 now includes a USB port, but there are no other significant changes for 2013. Exterior Thanks to an arcing black garnish atop the air dam, the Mazda2 carries the smiling expression Mazda has affixed to most of its cars. The lower air dam dominates the Mazda2's nose; a thin grille with Mazda's logo sits above it. Around 155 inches long, the Mazda2 is a bit longer than the tiny Yaris hatchback, but it's significantly shorter than most other competitors. Exterior features include:
Standard body-colored door handles and side mirrors
Available fog lamps
Available 15-inch alloys
Available rear spoiler
Available chrome exhaust tip
Interior The cabin seats five, with textured fabric upholstery in Sport models and upgraded fabric with red piping in the Touring. The stereo display sits within a circular cutout. The rear seats fold down in a 60/40 split, allowing 27.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume. Interior features include:
Standard power windows and locks
Standard air conditioning
Standard CD stereo with an MP3 jack and USB port
Standard keyless entry
Available leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls
Available trip computer

Engine uses regular gas
Front disc and rear drum brakes
