2011 Mazda 2: Mazda Gets an "A" for Effort

May 11, 2011

I have to hand to Mazda. The company preaches a philosophy of sportiness and it lives up to it.

Case in point: This button in the Mazda 2. Clearly, it disables the car's traction control system, something you might want to do in a sporty car.

But this is a Mazda 2. It has all of 100 horsepower and only 98 pound feet of torque. Traction control or not, you're not breaking anything loose in this thing. Still, I'd rather have the ability to at least try. Thanks Mazda.
