You’ll be able to get two adults in the back – or there are two sets of Isofix child seat mounts if you need to accommodate children. There’s a 280-litre boot on offer in the Mazda2, which is a little behind the class best, but a high-load lip means that items won’t roll out whenever the wide-opening tailgate is lifted. Fold the back seats down and there are 950 litres of space to play with.
The Mazda2 Hybrid has a smaller boot opening but can carry a bit more, with a 286-litre capacity. Cabin storage in the Mazda2 is fine, with twin cup holders and a small tray between the front seats, and another deep tray ahead of the gear lever where the USB and 12-volt sockets are.
The door bins are reasonable, while the glovebox is of a decent size, too. Mazda2 Hybrid models come with an electric parking brake, which makes some space on the centre console so that there’s a tray below a central armrest. There are additional trays beneath the central touchscreen and above the glovebox, and there are smaller door bins than in the non-hybrid.
