2011 Mazda 2: Another Nice Detail

July 05, 2011


The Mazda 2 isn't the least bit fancy. In fact, dressed in refrigerator white like our test car, it's about as homely looking as a new car gets, at least on the outside.

Mazda's designers might not have done much with the exterior, but they added a little bit of flair to the interior where they could. Most hatchbacks in this class are saddled with plain old grey cloth from top to bottom. The Mazda 2 mixes it up with contrasting fabrics and red piping, at least on the Touring model. The base model doesn't get the red piping, but at least it has contrasting fabrics.

None of this is groundbreaking stuff, but when it comes to $16K cars, it's an indication that the designers are at least trying to make a go of it.
