Introduction

Mazda is in a bit on a roll these days. Their stunning Mazda 6 has won many over with its looks; the CX-5 – surprising for a Japanese carmaker – comes with a diesel engine option in Singapore, and the Mazda 3 offers serious value for money with its feature packed standard equipment. 

The Mazda 2 seems to follow the same strategy as the Mazda 3, with an unbelievable amount of kit in such a small car, and what is supposedly the brand’s entry-level model in the country. We looked at this intriguing proposition with greater care in our day test drive, and came away very reluctant to give the keys back to this wonderful machine. Find out more in the following pages why.
