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

There are just two trim levels--Sport and Touring--offered on the 2014 Mazda 2, with a handful of colors (three of them new for 2014) and just a few options, many of which are installed by dealerships or at the port. In general, the car offers an appealing package for keep-it-basic commuters who want more driving fun than they'll get in other, more lavishly-equipped subcompacts.

The base Mazda 2 Sport model includes standard power locks, windows, and mirrors; a tilt-adjustable steering wheel; air conditioning; remote keyless entry; a rear-window washer/wiper unit; a folding rear seat with a 60/40 split seat back; and an audio system with four speakers, a single CD slot, and an audio input jack for MP3s and the like. As of last year, all Mazda 2 models also come standard with a USB input and auxiliary audio input. The one flaw in the Sport package is the plastic wheel covers over painted steel wheels, which give a distinct bargain-basement 1980s look to its appearance.

Buyers who opt for the higher-level Touring model will get 15-inch alloy wheels, a trip computer, many more appearance and trim upgrades, and a six-speaker audio system. Front fog lights, a roof spoiler, nicer cloth upholstery with red piping, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with built-in audio controls, and even a chrome exhaust tip are the main items on the list.

Want Bluetooth pairing for your mobile phone? Or any kind of navigation system at all? Those items still aren't on the option list at all, though Mazda dealers can arrange for factory-approved aftermarket installations.

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.
