30% city & 70% highway.
Drive at 90kph. Seldom exceed.
Duration of car driven:
Changing to 195-55-15 tyres would further improve road holding.
Good handling at bends in higher speeds and provide confidence to driver.
Reasonable fuel consumption. Initial 12.5km per litre. Now getting about 14.5~15km per litre. Driving pattern smooth. About 30% city & 70% highway.
Flexible seat arrangement. Easy folding of rear seats.
Reclinable rear seats which not may cars provide. Good for longer journey to rear passengers comfort.
Reasonable boot space. Better than most hatch on similar class. After putting a subwoofer still has sufficient space. Has vertical boot space as non to sedan models.
Good legroom for all passengers, front & rear.
Good seating height. High and comfortable enough. No need to climb in during entering and alighting from car.
Has manual gear play.Added advantage.
Nice dash storage consoles with good space.
Good door pockets even for rear doors.
Flush rear space with floor board good for seating on seasides or parks resting with tailgate open.
Good tailgate opening height will not hit your head.
Adjustable headlights internally. Good convenient feature.
Very clean exhaust emission. 2 years still as clean. No carbon formation at all on tail pipe.
Don't like the green meter dash.
Not as stable as Premacy at high speeds like 140kph. It is rocky at 130kph. Although road holding still good. Lack of the smooth comfort.
The engine feels revy and can do spirited drive if you want to. The engine is an improvement from the previous non-SP model.
The Mazda2 looks stylish inside. There are some titanium-effect trims on the dashboard that adds sportiness. Finally, the top of the dashboard is patterned so it almost resembled carbon fibre. Feels expensive.
The rear fold split adds a lot of versility to the rear, which is very much needed for any hatchback design. Very 'massive' interior for such a class.
Fuel economy is very good for this 1.5L car. I can easily do 12 km/l even in town diving.
Very stylish look. Not girly looking and doesn't look like a box MPV either.
