KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 12/23/2013


Once regarded as the best way to achieve good fuel economy, subcompact cars like the 2014 Mazda2 5-door no longer reign supreme as the most miserly modes of transportation. However, they still offer the most affordable way to get into a new car. The Mazda2's strong points are obvious just by looking at it. Aggressive styling, bold colors and a long list of standard features give it a leg up on more expensive alternatives, as does its reputation on twisting back roads. Offered in a single, 5-door hatchback configuration, the Mazda2 isn't as versatile as the Ford Fiesta, Kia Rio or Nissan Versa. The Mazda2 is also noticeably lacking in the areas of horsepower, audio and infotainment upgrades and – with only four gears – a modern automatic transmission.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're looking for a reliable, fuel-efficient small car that is also as much fun to drive as it is to look at, we think you'll find much to love in the 2014 Mazda2 hatchback.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Those who prize audio and infotainment systems won't be happy with the Mazda2's limited options. The 100 horsepower and 4-speed automatic won't do much to help, either.

What's New for 2014

There are no major updates for the 2014 Mazda2 5-door.

Driving It Driving Impressions

No matter how you slice it, the 2014 Mazda2's 100 horsepower just isn't going to impress anyone concerned with speed and passing power. However, those who show patience will be well rewarded by the Mazda2's go-kart-like handling and excellent 5-speed manual transmission. Weighing a mere 2,300 pounds has its advantages, and Mazda's suspension engineers have exploited every last one of them. Toss the Mazda2 into a curve, and the feeling is almost Miata-like, with immediate turn-in and a responsive suspension devoid of dramatic lean or dive. You can have fun with this car all day, that is until you come upon a slow-moving truck and need power to pass it quickly. Still, from its comfortable cabin to the compliant ride, the Mazda2 earns its "zoom-zoom" stripes with ease.

Favorite Features

COMFORTABLE SEATING
Some bargain-basement cars can punish with rock-hard seats that are neither supportive nor comfortable, but not the 2014 Mazda2. We found the Mazda2 seats not only comfortable on long trips, but offering enough side bolstering to hold the driver in place during spirited driving.

5-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Mazda makes some of the best manual transmissions in the industry, and the Mazda2's 5-speed gearbox is no exception. It works well in this car, maximizing power and adding a bit of fun to the driving experience.
