If a low price is your first priority, go with the Mazda2 Sport. If you're willing to spend $1,500 more, get the well-equipped Touring model, which has 15-in alloy wheels, cruise control, a 6-speaker stereo and upgraded cloth seats. Unless you deal with constant stop-and-go traffic, we recommend the manual transmission over the automatic.

How Much Does a 2014 MAZDA MAZDA2 Cost?
The 2014 Mazda2 comes in just two trims, Sport and Touring, and offers few options. The Mazda2
Sport ($15,515) includes a 5-speed manual transmission, tilt steering column, air conditioning, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo with four speakers, keyless entry, 15-inch wheel covers, rear window defogger, rear wiper with washer, 60/40 split folding rear seat, height-adjustable driver's seat and power operation for the windows, door locks and side mirrors. The Mazda2
Touring ($17,005) adds 15-in alloy wheels, fog lights, chrome exhaust finisher, a rear roof spoiler, leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, two additional speakers, upgraded cloth upholstery and steering-wheel-mounted controls for audio and cruise control. Options include a 4-speed automatic transmission, Bluetooth cellphone connectivity, center console armrest and a few other dealer-installed options such as floor mats and an auto-dimming mirror.
If you worry that a car as small as the Mazda2 may not be a safe choice for kids heading off to college, you can rest easily. Mazda equips every Mazda2 with front and front side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags and electronic traction and stability control. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the Mazda2 scored well in offset frontal and roof strength but earned only an Acceptable rating in the side-impact test.
2014 MAZDA MAZDA2 vs the competition
Honda Fit -- The Fit offers more interior room than the Mazda2 and can be equipped with navigation and a backup camera, but we think the Mazda2 feels more sporty and agile.
Nissan Versa -- When it comes to interior roominess, the Versa is king. Plus, the Versa can be equipped with an inexpensive navigation unit and push-button start. However, the Versa lacks the Mazda2's coolness factor.
Kia Rio -- The Rio 5-door offers more power, better fuel economy, more high-end features and a better warranty than the Mazda2 but has slightly weaker long-term resale value.
Ford Fiesta -- The Fiesta is as cool as the Mazda2, offers Ford's SYNC communication system and has a much more upscale interior. The Fiesta also gets better highway mileage and has a more powerful engine.
