2011 Mazda 2 Touring: Something's Missing

November 29, 2010

During my first few minutes behind the wheel of the 2, I felt as if something wasn't quite right. I wasn't quite as comfortable as I wanted to be in the cockpit.

Couldn't put my finger on what the problem was was first, but then I figured it out: The car doesn't have a front center armrest. Hadn't ever seen myself as one of those people who's picky about the whole armrest thing, but that's probably because pretty much every car I've ever driven has had one.

A front center armrest isn't currently available on the 2, but the feature will make an appearance later on in the model year as a no-cost option. Do you need a center armrest to feel comfortable behind the wheel?
