you’re not going to find a better chassis setup in the B-segment than this Mazda 2. The Honda Fit, the Toyota Yaris, the Nissan Versa, the Kia Rio, the Chevrolet Aveo and the Ford Fiesta got nothing on the Mazda.

But Jon, doesn’t the Fiesta have the same basic platform architecture as the Mazda, you ask? Yes, but according to Mazda, the two cars only share the basic platform, wheel bearings, front upper-strut mounts and front antiroll-bar end links. Everything else is different.

What I like the most about the 2 is that it drives, well, like a Mazda. Steering is direct, responsive and weighty while the suspension tuning gives the car quick reflexes and sufficient damping qualities. The brakes are strong with lots of modulation available from the pedal.
