With gas prices having gone through the roof, subcompact economobiles are pouring into the U. About the only company not setting foot into the diminutive class is Mazda-or for that matter, Mazda partner Ford. Other countries get pint-sized Mazdas and Fords, but not the U. The Mazda 2as the number implies, is a vehicle smaller than the Mazda 3.

The '08 2 was developed on a platform designed in Japan, and the front-drive architecture will also underpin the Ford Fiesta. Now you're thinking, "We don't get that car, either," which is true, but under Ford boss Alan Mulally's global development plan, a Fiesta-sized car should arrive here in So although the Mazda 2 won't be coming to a Mazda dealer near you, how it drives and how it is made do bear examining because it is the basis for a Ford in our future.

Whereas most of the world's small cars get larger and heavier with each iteration, the Mazda 2 is actually at least pounds lighter than its predecessor-an upright, undistinguished five-door hatchback. Some of the weight saving comes from the Mazda's smaller size-at More weight reduction is a result of "feature adjustment," another way of saying the company pulled out features, so don't go looking for the Fit's trick folding rear seats-you won't find them.

More weight loss comes from the engineering department. The unibody is now more than percent high-strength steel, which can be thinner and therefore lighter than mild steel. The suspension and the brakes reflect the cascade effect of weight saving: These pieces can be lighter because there's less mass to handle.

The rest of the car was subjected to a strict "gram strategy," in which every part was analyzed to save fractions of a pound. Some of the saving came from surprising areas-like the 6. This weight watching benefits not only the car's performance but also its fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The Mazda 2 now has a surprising agility, but the entire car is set up more for utility than sportiness.

Quick steering 2. Body roll is well controlled, and yet the ride is reasonably supple. Disc brakes up front and drums in back erase speed without drama. Mazda claims the 2's steering, brakes, and handling are best in class. We would say the Mazda is among the best; the Fit sets a very high standard. Although the 2 is light, it does not feel flimsy. Mazda has gone to a lot of effort to correct a weak point of the previous gen-its excessive noise, vibration, and harshness.

Road noise has been reduced by increasing body-shell rigidity, fitting a brace between the front strut towers, and paying careful attention to suspension bushings. Our first drive was with the hp, 1. The 1. Japan will get a five-speed-automatic option. A few words about the 2's styling, even if its shape won't be shared with Fords on the platform. Mazda has shown a series of concept cars emphasizing flowing forms and a wedgy profile.

The Mazda 2's sides and hood have complicated, sculpted surfaces, and there is a hint of RX-8 in the front fenders. Rear overhang has been reduced to a minimum, so the car has a tight, sporty stance. In Europe, Mazda hasn't really been a player among the smallest cars.

The new 2 promises to change that-and bodes well for Fords that will share its essential elements. New Cars. Buyer's Guide. Type keyword s to search. Today's Top Stories. VW ID. View Photos.
