Mazda’s sporty range includes a supermini worth looking at - and a used Mazda 2 could better for you than the obvious Ford Fiesta, VW Polo or Renault Clio options. There are hundreds of used Mazda 2s on sale through Parkers, so what’s the best model to go for? The Mazda 2 is a traditional front-wheel drive supermini, and the 2007-2015 model is closely related to the Fiesta. It’s not just a badge-engineered clone, though; a used Mazda 2 offers a sportier drive, lightweight and agile feel and impressive economy. Neither the 1.3-litre or 1.5-litre Sport models are particularly quick, though, so you may want to look elsewhere for outright speed. A nearly-new Mazda 2 from 2015-on could be the answer - in 115hp Sport form, it’ll reach 62mph in less than nine seconds. This third-generation Mazda 2 also looks good, with a design language similar to the MX-5 and RX-8. Yes - there are three generations. You could also look for the oldest used Mazda 2 for sale on Parkers, from 2002 to 2007 - it’s an upright family MPV closer to a Ford Fusion, and offers great value, reliable transport for a low price.
