The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Mazda2 stands out among entry-level hatchbacks due to its zippy driving feel and good real-world mileage--although the limited feature set and basic appointments won't appeal to everyone. Small cars don't need to be bland--the 2013 Ford Fiesta proves that with a saucy look and pert handling.
