Mileage, Safety & Reliability

As I've said, the Mazda2 is related to the Fiesta, but one area where there's a noticeable difference between the two is in the mileage department. Where the Mazda gets an estimated 27-29 mpg in the city and 33-35 mpg on the highway, the Fiesta gets 28-29 mpg city and 37-38 mpg highway (40 mpg in the fuel-saving SFE edition).


As a new model, the Mazda2 has not yet been crash-tested, nor is there sufficient data for reliability ratings.
