Autoinfomotive – 2016 Mazda 2 Review. The newest release that is the 2016 Mazda 2 vehicle offers us perhaps the best looking exterior design of a small sedan on the market. It is very drive orientated and responsive and gives great performance rates, which combined with a great use of a sharp and responsive transmission system give us progressive steering options. Perhaps its interior spacing is not something that it can brag about nor is the cabin noise at a perfect sound level, but the car manages to get through even with those kind of a downfalls, if we can call them as such.
There has always been a problem making baby sized sedans and fitting them on a city-size hatchback. There is something that is not right with that kind of a setup and something that does not look okay there. It is always awkward to make these kinds of changes happen and make them fit on a car like this. But fortunately, the 2016 Mazda 2 vehicle is something that changes all of that as it manages to fit the designing cues well in this situation.
The Australian release that is the Honda Civic perhaps showcased some fine characteristics at first, but it actually felt a bit squished when it came out at the end. But the Mazda 2 vehicle is actually the first example of meeting the design cues right and making the design work properly. They have actually used a design in their endeavor rather than a hatch and the result is the vehicles that you see in the pictures before you. Read the rest of the review and find out about the given specs about the car.
2016 Mazda 2 Changes
The inside of the 2016 Mazda 2 is a very nice setting for the driver and the people who drive in it. It actually has large tablet-style central screen which is combined with a tunnel-mounted commander rotary dial. You also get the use of satin chrome, red air vent highlights and seat stitching that have leather materials on the steering wheel, the handbrake and the gear knob as well. These are perhaps the biggest additions that the inside of the vehicle gets and is something that enhances its budget and makes in more extravagant. But the downfall parts are some scratchy plastic details that make in on the inside and a low quality roof line. The formerly mentioned parts outweigh the later ones and are what make the quality of the car.
The entire cockpit layout is very clean and user friendly It has been designed in a way that offers everything up close and is oriented at providing the best comfort and the best inside layout for the driver to use. On the steering wheel you will find the appropriate commands for the cruise control and infotainment functions. The instrument cluster is designed in a half digital way and is very slick. The added Maxx’s MZD Connect system is perhaps one of the best in the business and is one of the advantages of the vehicles. Through it you can use such internet radio apps as Pandora, Stitcher and Aha and it also comes with Satellite navigation for an additional cost.
Both the standard and high-specs versions of the 2016 Mazda 2 are going to come with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Thus the Mazda 2 Neo is going to deliver 79kW and 139Nm while the Maxx offers 81kW and 141Nm. The difference is that the Maxx has a stop-start engine system which makes an 11 percent better fuel efficiency than the Neo version. The Neo on the other hand has an EPA rating of 4.9 liters per 100 kilometers versus 5.5L/100km while when using the manual 5.4L/100km (standard-spec) and 5.2L/100km (high-spec). The engine is now refined due to its rev range but it is nosier that way. It offers good acceleration which is tamer and can the progress can even go milder when going up the hill.
The exterior design of the 2016 Mazda 2 has been devised perfectly and executed in detail. The car has been shaped to be a very good addition and particularly the exterior design was carefully made. The troubles that were made with the hatch version were carefully considered and the problems were addressed in making a better choice with the sedan version. The previous haphazard design was avoided this way and we get a vehicle which can boast with perhaps the best looking design from all baby sedan cars. The design combines the elegant look of a Mazda vehicle with a rear side which looks like a smaller version of the Mazda 3 design. The added practicality for this light sedan is something that gives it a higher advantage compared to other cars as it offers a better setup. It will win some of the people mostly on looks, but they will not be disappointed when they figure out how practical the car really is.
2016 Mazda 2 Price
The price range for the 2016 Mazda 2 starts at $14,990, base MSRP. There are going to be some price deviations depending on the additions that you make.

The Maxx has a base MSRP price of $17,690 for the manual while the automatic version is priced at $19,690.
