The Mazda 2 has a cracking free-revving naturally-aspirated petrol engine and, alongside the fact that it is one of the cheapest cars in the UK to run, that’s one of the reasons why we like it.

But its rock bottom running costs and fun engine aren’t where the good news ends, the Mazda 2 also comes with good looks and great practicality.The interior is well designed and has a quality feel to it, while the car is packed with technology, such as a seven-inch central touchscreen.
