The 2 may be a Mazda, but it's based on the Ford Fiesta and Fusion and built in Ford's Spanish factory. It offers exceptional versatility and a rejuvenated badge image thanks to funkier Mazdas like the 6 and RX-8. The mixture of Ford durability and Mazda's proven reliability means it's a sturdy and dependable alternative to more mainstream small cars.
