2011 Mazda MAZDA2 Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, The Mazda2 proved a top seller in Europe, Japan, and Australia for a period of three years; now it has entered the United States automotive market. The Mazda2 for 2011 is a serious competitor in the small vehicle segment. No doubt, it will sell well in the US market since it has an attractive yet quirky styling. It offers a great deal of practicality and comfort too.
The Mazda2 is Mazda’s smallest car offering. It has the Ford Fiesta’s chassis, but any similarity to the Fiesta stops there. The engine/gearbox offerings, the handling of the vehicle, and the exterior styling make the Mazda2 a distinct vehicle. The cabin of the vehicle is open, comfortable, and ultra-spacious. It has contouring, smooth shapes in its interior, storage bins, fold flat rear seats, cup holders, and more.
Since it is the Mazda2′s first year in the lineup, everything is essentially new. Those looking for something entry level but with enough interior comforts and technology, should opt for the Sport model. The Touring edition throws in a few more standard accessories like chrome exhaust tips, fog lights, 15-inch alloy wheels, and a trip computer. The Mazda2 gets 28/35 miles per gallon and it has a five speed manual transmission. If you’re seeking a fun, fuel efficient car, the Mazda2 will meet your demand. This vehicle meets the carmaker’s “Zoom Zoom Concentrated” philosophy;” It is a spirited offering with pizzazz.
The 2011 Mazda2′s short front and rear overhangs give it a sporty look. Even in “concentrated” form, it maintains the prominent smiling front end. Standard amenities for the Mazda2 include air conditioning, power door locks with keyless entry; tilt steering wheel, and 60/40 folding rear seats. A four speaker (six-speaker on Touring) AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo comes standard as well.
The Mazda2 is powered by a 100-horsepower 1.5-liter inline-four cylinder making 98 pound-feet of torque that is the car’s sole available engine. It’s no stop light racer, but it makes up for its lack of speediness and pony power with high mpg ratings (28 city/35 highway with manual, 28 city/34 highway with automatic). Driver and passenger front and side airbags are standard, as are side airbag curtains and side impact door beams. There is also a crushable pedal assembly, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and dynamic stability control with traction control.
