2011 Mazda 2: Who Says This Thing Is Too Small?

August 11, 2011


I know, the Mazda 2 isn't a great vehicle for hauling stuff. Still, I figured the wheel from my motorcycle was small enough to fit in just about anything. And sure enough, it is, but not by much. It was a good reminder just how shallow the cargo bay in the Mazda 2 can be when you're trying to fit stuff back there.

Of course, I could have just dropped the rear seats if I needed even more room, but I didn't want to get grease on the seatbacks. I also like the idea of the wheel being firmly secured in the cargo bay. Can't imagine what would happen if I had a panic stop with it sitting on the folded back seats.
