The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a zippy driving feel and good real-world gas mileage, the 2012 Mazda2 really stands out among entry-level vehicles. The 2012 Honda Fit is peppy and fun to drive, and its interior is incredibly space-efficient; but some might be turned off by its rather utilitarian look.
