The Car Guide rating 70%(view ratings)
The smallest Mazda on our market stands out primarily because of its modern and original exterior. But let’s not forget that this five-door hatchback also offers a sporty ride and is surprisingly roomy for its size. There’s only one available engine, a 1.5L four-cylinder producing 100 horsepower. This front-wheel drive comes factory standard with a five-speed manual gearbox, but a four-speed automatic is available on option.
