Lets just cut to lớn the chase: This is the new Mazdomain authority 2 Sedan, and it is one impressive small sedan. First of all, I would lượt thích khổng lồ begin by pointing out how highly improved it is when compared to lớn its predecessor; while you cannot deny inside is a largely plasticky place, the cabin manages to lớn reek style and functionality at the same time. Yes, it is assembled in Vương Quốc của nụ cười unlike its hatchbachồng brethren that are put together in Japan, but if you were to lớn put a person through a blind demo, they simply cannot tell the difference. At all.

Particularly in this Deluxe cộ grade. You get seats, dashboard và steering wheel that are all wrapped in leather. Then in a show of high attention to details, you get faux carbon-fiber bits on all doors, center console and steering wheel; some may find it distasteful but if you were to lớn ask me personally, it sure beats having one-toned plastic throughout the entire cabin. While at it, the cockpit may not appear as fanciful; Mazdomain authority manages lớn still keep things pleasant & tidy by making every control buttons clearly labeled & well put together, air-nhỏ blowers properly positioned (even BMW gets this wrong at times, mind you) & for that premium touch, Mazda’s MZD Connect along with a 7-inch TFT Multimedia system, comes standard. Oh yes, reverse sensor và camera is fitted at no extra cost as well.

The goodness of the interior does not over there. With wheelbase at 2,570 mm and width of 1,695 mm, it somehow manages khổng lồ feel more spacious than the Hondomain authority City và Nissan Almera (I haven’t personally sampled the Mitsubishi Attrage & Suzuki Ciaz, hence I shall not comment; the Toyota Vios is no longer available locally) as a whole. That said however, there is no denying how the Almera offers the better legroom still.

Its rear bench accommodates three average-sized adults without a hitch, then again, it is comfortably best for two over long-distance trips; the transmission tunnel unfortunately gets in the way. Now for another not-so-good news: boot space is not the biggest in class. In fact, the 440-litres it offers is the smallest next lớn the Hondomain authority City (510-litres), Suzuki Ciaz (510-litres), Nissan Almera (506-litres) & Mitsubishi Attrage (450-litres). This, if you were to scrutinize the photos properly, could be attributed khổng lồ the fact that Mazdomain authority was trying khổng lồ keep the proportions right & not compromise on styling — at least this is no faux pas like… Hmm… Its predecessor and the fourth-gene City. If I may add, it instead has similar cues to lớn its much elder sibling, the 1990s Mazda 121 sedan — remember that one?

Powering the Mazdomain authority 2 Sedan is a 4-cylinder, 1.5-litre SkyActiv-G engine mated khổng lồ a 6-tốc độ automatic transmission. With that combination, power output is a healthy 114 bhp & 148 Nm; add that lớn the 1,079 kilogam kerbweight, & what you get here is a light-footed small sedan that sprints forward in a highly pleasant manner. To the point that the declared 9.9 seconds 0 — 100km/h sprint sounded lượt thích a big lie.

In town driving, you rarely catch the oto out of breath, sprinting from one junction khổng lồ the other without embarrassingly feeling underpowered or breathless. While it feels willing to go all the way khổng lồ its 6,500 rpm redline, it does seem khổng lồ be highly vocal anywhere past 4,500 rpm. By the way to lớn make it more engaging, a subtle ‘Sport’ switch is also placed just below the gear-shifter; no, it won’t transsize the Mazda 2 inlớn a GTR, but what it does is hold the gears longer for you lớn overtake or, while being a wee bit naughty, prevents the transmission from shifting up prematurely as you throw it from one corner lớn the other.

Since we are at the topic of handling, I am glad lớn report that this oto here comes with a highly capable chassis. Steering feedback is excellent by class standard and grip is available up lớn the limit. That second bit has to be credited khổng lồ the standard traction control system, as the tyres provided — comfort-biased 185/60 R-16 Dunlop Enasave EC300 rubbers — are simply lackluster.

Out on the expressway, the cabin is well insulated against wind and engine noise, although the lachồng of tyre well insulation does expose tyre noise in an obvious manner — Honda’s City feels more substantial in this aspect.


In a nutshell, the new Mazdomain authority 2 Sedan would be an excellent choice as your first brand new oto or the family’s second. As highlighted above sầu, it does have some issues, particularly the not-so-big boot and tyre noise intrusion at expressway tốc độ. But when you look at the exterior style, class-leading build quality, Mazda’s attention to lớn (interior) details, respectable handling and the extensive equipment màn chơi (oops, did I miss out the LED headlamp with daytime running light?), it does sound like one irresistible package.


Last but not least, that price tag: at $88,888 with COE, this Mazda 2 Sedan Deluxe pháo officially is giving the City ($92,999), Ciaz Premium ($92,900) và Almera Premium ($89,388) a very hard time.
