Driving Report Mazda2 1.5 MZR Sport-Line: Smiling dynamics

One of the most dynamically drawn small car he was before. After the facelift last year, he won it even further. The front end works through the narrow grille, the enlarged lower air intake and fog lamps changed now even stronger. The font headlight, brand emblem in the middle and the lower opening to give the Mazda2 a face that smiles at the viewer now formally.

The friendly presence continues in the interior, because the shows are exemplary in terms of ergonomic design. The shift lever extends conveniently quarter and high enough placed against the hand. The switches for radio and air conditioning are also positioned pleasantly high. The 12-volt power outlet and auxiliary input are optimally placed.

Only the well-meaning grain of the plastic surfaces can not drive out the little plastic impression unfortunately, completely sober. Nevertheless, the interior with the facelift has become noticeable. The instruments are now equipped with a black background and white numbers. The center console is reflected in modern piano black finish, silver accents and other elements create more robust materials are intended for longer provide joy to the vehicle.

With its striking increasing window line, which receives the lower skirts bow, the Mazda2 is still radiates out much athleticism. Is accentuated by the new tires of the 15-inch steel wheels and newly designed 16-inch aluminum wheels. But the practical note is not quite as good. The trunk lid is quite small, cut access to 250 liters of luggage compartment closely.

The sill is also quite high. Except for the separate folding backrest, the left one notch, the Mazda2 has no variability. There can be sitting in the back amazingly well. The headroom is better than in some competitors. Facilitate access rear doors that open almost to an angle of 90 degrees.

The trippy outer appearance is quite appropriate to emphasize in addition the Sports Line equipment in addition to alloy wheels specific sports headlights, side skirts and roof spoiler. With the 75 kW / 102 hp 1.5-liter gasoline engine, the Mazda top is quite fast. He quickly accelerated to high demand and can boast a top speed of at least 188 km / h, the engine turns but not just as spirited, but also as encouraging flexible.

Even below a speed of 50 km / h can be moved to the Mazda in fifth gear and takes just stutter-free on no-load speed of gas. The steering has no play in the middle and works wonderfully direct. Extremely well managed, the revised chassis, which offers a better compromise between comfort and sporting demands.

The seats offer excellent lateral support, a small car and the Mazda even high cornering stability. We came up with the average consumption for on-board computer data from 7.5 to 8.0 liters per 100 kilometers. We had seen indicated on the figure of 5.8 liters, while they are also proof that the Mazda is happy to go a little faster - just as it signals his outward character.

Because it's good to also have a speed limiter on board.
