Mazda / Mazda2 / Genki 5-dr hatch
THE light car class is a hive of interesting activity lately (Fiesta, Polo,
i20, upcoming Swift), but the recently facelifted, newly Thai-built Mazda2
remains one of the leading baby contenders thanks to a combination of style,
performance, practicality and agility.
Three years on from launch, the DE
series is beginning to show its age in some areas (such as cabin presentation),
but the littlest offering from the ‘zoom-zoom’ people is a nicely formed
example as to why buyers who begin with this brand so often stick with it.
Model release dates: May 2010 - September 2014
