Subcompact sedans make the perfect 1st car for young professionals, small families, and newly weds due to its practical size, straight-forward features, and relatively affordable price tag. Here are 3 reasons why the Car of the Year Mazda2 SkyActiv should be on top of your list.
The MZD Connect allows you to easily sync your smartphone to the infotainment system. With this, you can now view your social media accounts, listen to your music and audio books while driving. Don't worry, the 3.5-inch monitor is well within the driver's field of vision.
The Mazda2 SkyActiv also boasts its Sport Mode which can be activated with a flip of a switch just below the shift stick. The gears switch faster in manual mode. On the other hand, shifting gears is prolonged to get maximum power in automatic mode.
It's an award winning car
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Mazda2 SkyActiv recently achieved an impressive fuel economy rating of 15.73 km/L in combined city and highway driving. To put it in perspective, that's 23% more fuel efficient than its predecessor.
To top things off, the Mazda2 SkyActiv also received a bunch of accolades since its launch early 2015. These include the Japan Car of the Year 2014 – 2015, Car of the Year Philippines 2015 – 2016 from the Car Awards Group Inc. (CAGI), and Germany's Red Dot Design Award – Honorable Mention. It also received a 5-star safety rating at the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).
