Mazda2 test drive coming up


I am driving the new small hatch from Mazda for a few days.

Mine is a Limited model with Automatic. (Trying to get a manual but it's not available for a while)

I'll answer any questions you might have about it.

How about why there aren't any in the U.S. market yet?

O know, I was told a manual wasn't available in the press fleet right now...
So they gave me what they had.

Is this thing really as fun to drive as some say? An how would it compare handling wise say to a GTI?

What in the hell are you talking about? They been here since about October or earlier of last year.

I've seen a BUNCH of these running around in the Northern VA area and driven one myself.

This is hands down the best driving B-Segment vehicle on the market right now.

I have yet to see one anywhere in Southern California. And this is a place where people get with the latest models rather quickly.

It's a fun little car, but no GTI.
I wouldn't even compare the two. The Mazda2 is so much cheaper and smaller.
It also has about half the power of a GTI.

Handling is good for such a car.
