2014 Mazda Mazda2 review: Our expert's take

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.

Super reliable engine, can take a beating

This cars reliability blows me away, I’ve had it for 4 years now and used to drive from hood river to Portland like twice a week with it, so I threw a good 75k miles, driven very hard on it with zero problems other than regular maintenance. Just had to replace my brakes and serpentine belt at 73k

Nice mini style

Owned this car for 7 years and only changed the tires! Very reliable and cheap to run. I have the budget sport edition meaning no controls on the steering wheel. Got power Windows, mirrors, AC, no cruise on this model, CD mp3 with only two front speakers but can mount rear speakers in the doors. It’s a stick shift so I can push it a bit more to feel sporty but defiantly not a fast car but handles nice. Everything is still original even the brakes and battery (Panasonic brand btw) but recently got rear ended and had to get it fixed so don’t think it will be the same as it was new. Overall great for the city but not ideal for long trips unless you don’t mind keeping your foot on the gas the whole time. Oh and the tires are an odd size so not exactly cheap to replace but I just put the same size that’s on the Ford Fiesta which are more common. Overall great little mini.
