WOW FACTOR: It comes from a good family!

The hatchback version of the Mazda2 has impeccable credentials – its accolades include the South African and World Car of the Year titles. The sedan derivative also offers all the features that have seen the car win a boot-load of trophies – terrific handling, superb build quality and a fun drive. But it also comes with a nice sized boot (at 450 litres, the sedan’s luggage capacity is 200 litres greater than the hatchback’s). Oh and the boot has a low floor and the widest boot-lid opening in the class – so it’s easy-peasy to load luggage.
