2011 Mazda 2 Touring: Slots

April 29, 2011


Whenever I get into the 2011 Mazda 2, I half expect to be inconvenienced by its lack of amenities. Oh, it's far better appointed than the car I drove in college, or even economy cars of 10 years ago, but it doesn't have a center armrest or a USB port or... well, ultimately, I never end up caring. Especially during baseball season when I'm listening to AM radio anyway.

I digress, but these slots in the center console one thing that really make the Mazda 2 livable for me. See, I travel with a lot of stuff, not for any good reason, but just because I do, and I always have a place for that stuff (including my cruddy sunglasses case that holds the sunglasses I paid a bit too much for) in the Mazda 2. That's not a given in other economy cars. Add in the slick shifter, lively handling and compliant ride, and well, you can have yourself a fine evening in this car.
