If they are thinking about buying a Mazda 2, Perth based drivers may be interested in how it has performed in the months since its release. When a car is released we often only get the initial hype surrounding it and no idea of how it performs for an extended period. Here we will look at some of the interesting things that we’ve noticed about the Mazda 2 when used beyond its traditional role as a day to day urban runabout.

Grand Touring in a Mazda 2

Many people buy the best car to suit their needs, and for urban dwellers, this may be a smaller runabout. When the need or opportunity for a longer trip away arises there is a quandary, do you go with your own car or hire a larger touring model? Happily, we can report that the Mazda 2 performed well on a longer trek that included a decent amount of driving on highways and some country roads.

The first thing we noticed is that the 250 litre boot space when packed well took most of the stuff for a two person getaway. Granted a few coats and a bag had to placed in the rear footwell before setting off. Carrying more cargo than normal had no effect at all on the upbeat performance of the Mazda 2. The ride was comfortable, and as the city was left behind, we settled into some highway driving.

The Mazda 2 isn’t regarded as a class leader for extended highway journeys. However, we found that the road and wind noise suppression worked well and conducting a conversation without shouting was easy. The tyre roar was unobtrusive even when travelling along at a brisk 100km/hr.

Highway Cruising in the Mazda 2

The cruise control was smooth when set at 100km/hr, in sixth gear the 1.5 litre petrol engine was purring sweetly at 2,250rpm. The speed was well handled when negotiating slopes and stayed consistent throughout the journey. In car entertainment was provided by the basic infotainment system, which provided excellent sound quality for a connected device. Mazda claims a combined fuel economy of 5.5L/100km, but we noticed that it was closer to 5.0L/100km for extended highway driving.
