2014 Mazda Mazda2 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Mazda2?

The 2014 Mazda2 is a five-seat, subcompact front-wheel-drive car that's offered in two trim levels: Sport and Touring. Competitors include the Honda Fit, Ford Fiesta and Chevrolet Sonic.

What's New on the 2014 Mazda2?

There are no significant changes.

How Does the 2014 Mazda2 Compare to Other Subcompacts?

The Mazda2 isn't as fuel efficient as the Ford Fiesta, but it's more fun to drive. Horsepower seems low at first glance, but the Mazda2 dishes out zippy performance. Some of its stiffest competition comes from the Mazda3, which isn't much more expensive and offers more space.

What Features in the 2014 Mazda2 Are Most Important?

Under the hood of the Mazda2, you'll find a 100-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that can be paired with a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission. Front disc and rear drum brakes are standard.

Significant standard features include body-colored door handles and side mirrors, 15-inch steel wheels, seating for five, power windows and locks, keyless entry, air conditioning, a CD stereo with an MP3 jack and a USB port and a 60/40-split, folding rear seat. Notable options include fog lamps, 15-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, a chrome exhaust tip, cruise control, a trip computer and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls.

The 2014 Mazda2 also comes standard with side-impact airbags for the front seats, as well as side curtain airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system with traction control.

Should I Buy the 2014 Mazda2?

You can expect a long list of standard features from the 2014 Mazda2, plus above-average safety features and decent cabin materials. Cargo space leaves a lot to be desired, though, and your rear-seat passengers probably won't love the tight backseat.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
