2011 Mazda 2 Touring: Does it fit?
October 08, 2011
You know the scenario: late for a meeting or appointment, you prowl the concrete tree house looking for that one spot, as close to the staircase as possible that somebody just vacated. You find one! Alas, the parking stalls, despite the ever-increasing size of most vehicles in the U.S., have grown narrower. Have you noticed? Maybe it's just an L.A./O.C. thing. At any rate, I was so happy to be driving the Mazda 2 because I doubt even a Mazda3 would have fit in the stall--I did have to fold the driver's-side mirror to thread my way between the cars, however. Thanks to this compact car actually fitting in a "Compact" stall, I made it to the meeting with plenty of time to spare.
