The Mazda 2 returned a decent result in our recent True MPG test of small petrol cars, achieving 50.8mpg in the real world – see our full results here. There’s more to the car than impressive fuel economy, though, and now we’ve found a big saving on the supermini through online brokers.

The Mazda 2 is a great supermini. It’s fun to drive and practical, and the 89bhp version of the 1.5-litre petrol engine offers good economy – 50.8mpg in the real world and 105g/km CO2 emissions – as well as strong performance.
The previous-generation Mazda 2 was the most reliable small car in the latest JD Power customer satisfaction survey, and owners can expect a similarly impressive level of reliability in the new version.
Other superminis are better all-rounders, and the 2 doesn’t have as much interior space as some rivals.
The 1.5-litre petrol engine offers good performance, but sounds coarse when revved hard and is noisy at motorway speeds.
Should I add any options?
