The 2013 Mazda2 vs. the 2013 Ford Fiesta


2013 Mazda2Small, sporty, and spirited is one of the best ways to describe the 2013 Mazda2. Featuring Mazda’s characteristic sculpted body and smiling grille, as well as a great list of available features, the Mazda2 has proven to be one of the best choices in the subcompact class.

The 2013 Ford Fiesta recently made its way to the United States to compete in the subcompact class. Despite being comparably priced to the Mazda2, the Ford Fiesta Hatchback misses many of the standard features that drivers now expect from a modern subcompact vehicle. This may make the Mazda2 a better buy for some people.
