2011 Mazda 2: At The Wheel

February 16, 2011

The auxiliary audio controls on the Mazda 2's steering wheel probably aren't the most eye-pleasing ones I've come across but I like the way they function. In particular, I like the control used to govern volume, primarily because I find it easier to work than a button. I also like the fact that it feels completely different from the adjacent radio preset buttons, so there's never any risk of confusion.

And let me also say how cool it is that auxiliary audio controls are now pretty commonplace in vehicles living in this humble price range -- within the Mazda 2 lineup, they're standard on Touring models like our little whippersnapper.

What do you think of the car's auxiliary audio controls?
