Expert Quotes:

The interior of the Mazda 2 can’t shake the economy-car vibes
Car and Driver

balanced, solid, compliant ride
MSN Autos

much more quiet and comfortable than we've come to expect in this class
Popular Mechanics

Some of the dash plastics feel cheap and clunky, and those front seats are severely lacking not only support, but overall comfort.
Autoblog

The 2’s back seat is a little short on headroom, and there’s no center headrest, but a couple of kids or small adults will fit fine.
Car and Driver

The 2013 Mazda2 has an interior that doesn't feel any larger than its interior suggests. Despite that, it's surprisingly close, by the numbers to the larger compact Mazda3, surprisingly.

There's decent legroom for four adults, provided none of them is more than six feet tall. At that height, you'll also max out the headroom and need to position the front seat a bit farther back--which takes its toll on rear legroom. Only smaller children will fit behind taller adults. To sum, the Mazda2 may be best used as a two-person vehicle, with the rear seat folded flat to offer maximum load space.

With supportive and comfortable front seats, the interior is nice-looking but doesn't impress one way or the other. The fabric is hardly premium, but the texture goes beyond plain old cloth, and the red piping in the Touring model adds an unexpected touch of color.

The cabin of the Mazda2 feels like it's been built to be inexpensive but not cheap, and provided you don't expect all that much polish or panache you won't be let down. The plastics feel durable, but tend to be a bit drab. You'll hear plenty of engine noise, especially when revving the engine, as you need to do when accelerating at anything more than leisurely, but otherwise the interior is free of rattles, squeaks, and groans.

Conclusion

The Mazda Mazda2 has comfortable seats and is, in general, inexpensive without feeling too cheap.

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.
