The 2013 Mazda2 not only looks good with its sharp, smooth lines -- but once you start it, you don't want to stop it.
The Mazda2's taut wedge shape conveys athleticism, with its shortened body overhangs and trimmed corners further accentuating its slender physique. Swooping character lines that start from the front wheel arch energetically flow across the vehicle's sides and wrap around the C-pillar and the trunk lid to complete a distinctive personality.
Available in Sport and Touring trims, both feature a body-color grille, power outside mirrors and door handles, keeping to a crisp, fresh exterior look. The Touring model offers 15-inch alloy wheels as standard over the Sport's 15-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers. The Touring trim also adds fog lights, a rear roof spoiler and chrome exhaust finisher for a sporty touch.
On the inside, the Mazda2 offers an intuitive and uncluttered contoured dash and instrumental panel. The overall interior design focuses on a central area for all driver and passenger operations, while the principle dash shape is minimized and curved away from occupants to further create a feeling of openness.
With seating available for up to five passengers, the rear cargo area offers an efficient 13.3 cubic feet. When utilizing the 60/40-split fold-down rear seats, an impressive cargo area of 27.8 cubic feet is created, more than enough room to hold the weekend's big-box warehouse shopping trip.
Available with either a five-speed manual transmission or four-speed automatic transmission for either trim level, the subcompact is fitted with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 100 horsepower and 98 lb-ft of torque.
