What's sort of refreshing about this class of cars is that there aren't a lot of features and interior gadgets that forever require adjustment.

the steering wheel only able to be tilted and not telescoped
AutoWeek


The 2012 Mazda2 is Mazda's smallest, least expensive model. And it's kept the options list short and the pricing simple, with just two models offered in only six colors.

The base model, known as the Sport, offers standard remote keyless entry; power locks, windows, and mirrors; air conditioning; a rear-window washer/wiper unit; a tilt-adjustable steering wheel; a folding rear seat with a 60/40 split seat back; and a single-CD audio system with MP3 input and four speakers. The one slightly grim note is the 15-inch steel wheels--increasingly a rarity these days--with plastic wheel covers.

Add another $1,500 or so to the sticker and you move up to the Touring model. That replaces the steel wheels with 15-inch alloy wheels, and upgrades the sound system to six speakers. There's also an added trip computer, and a host of appearance and trim items. Those include a roof spoiler, front fog lights, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with built-in audio controls, nicer cloth upholstery with red piping, and even a chrome exhaust tip.

If you want to add navigation or Bluetooth to either model, you can buy Garmin and Motorola aftermarket items directly from your Mazda dealer. And that's about it.

Conclusion

The 2012 Mazda Mazda2 delivers the basics, in just two models and six color choices, keeping it simple and inexpensive.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
