    I LOLed! Ang sikip nga talaga ng likod ng Mazda2, but you have to admit the 3 years free PMS is very tempting.

    As a solo car, the Mazda2 is much more satisfying to drive... but amongst Japanese/Korean subcompacts, the City is the one that comes closest... the steering is still way too light, but it handles well and drives very lightly.

    And it's got a huge backseat. If you ever need to use the back seat, City, hands down. If you don't, the M2... but hatchback please.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    How well does the small SkyActiv engine pushes the Mazda2? The City/Jazz L15 engine may have some oomph at the top end but it's performance at usual rpm (2k-3k) is quite boring. How stiff is the suspension of the Mazda2?

    For the price of the Mazda2R or City VX+, a Mazda3 1.5L or Altis 1.6G or Sylphy V (with discounts) might be better options.

    Niky, if you were to choose, Mazda 2 or Mazda 3 for purely city use?

    In testing, we found it to be just slightly (very very slightly) slower to 100 km/h than an Ecoboost. Faster off the line, loses out near 100 km/h as the Ecoboost has much more HP.

    Versus the Honda 1.5, definitely meatier bottom end power. Shorter first gear, too. The CVT's low range ratio is a bit too long.

    The Mazda3 1.5, I like. Actually feels nimbler and more responsive at low speeds than the 2.0. Don't know if it's because of the smaller alloy wheels or shorter gearing, but it does.
