2014 Mazda Mazda2 vs. 2015 Ford Fiesta Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mazda Mazda2 than the Ford Fiesta. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mazda Mazda2 and the Ford Fiesta in the front seats.

Convenience
The Ford Fiesta requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mazda Mazda2, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Mazda Mazda2 is clearly a better financial choice over the Ford Fiesta. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mazda Mazda2 and the Ford Fiesta have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mazda Mazda2 is a little narrower than the Ford Fiesta, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mazda Mazda2 is slightly shorter than the Ford Fiesta, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mazda Mazda2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Fiesta.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda2 has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Fiesta, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mazda Mazda2 has less horsepower than the Ford Fiesta, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mazda Mazda2 and the Ford Fiesta. The Mazda Mazda2 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Ford Fiesta.

Warranty
The Mazda Mazda2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Fiesta.
