Let me know how it is. I am going Sunday. Do they have the sedan. I mostly interested in that. Could u sit in the hatch?
I thought the same thing while I was at the Portland auto show. The Mazda 2 doesn't look bad, but it doesn't do anything to stand out from the sea of Versas, Accents, and Aveos. Seeing it in person it plainly looks like a cheaper, less exciting car than the Fiesta.What was Mazda thinking when they designed the 2. It will be interesting to see sales figures between the 2 and the Fiesta.
What were you thinking when you said that? The 2 is a perfectly good little car, it just got one-upped by Ford. In fact I remember a lot of European reviews saying the 2 was the best car in its class before the Fiesta came around. Plus the 2 at that show looks more like a low- or mid-level model, while the Fiesta is a top-line SES.What was Mazda thinking when they designed the 2.

I have no idea where the sales figures for other countries are, but here are the Dutch sales figures for the Fiesta and the Mazda 121 / Mazda 2:What was Mazda thinking when they designed the 2. It will be interesting to see sales figures between the 2 and the Fiesta.

Yup, it was at Washington, but not Detroit. At Washington it was sitting away from the main VW display in the "Green Car" zone. When I got there it was completely unattended. But a friend who went there the next day said an Irish VW rep was letting people into the car.the actual EU Polo has been at a few recent MAJOR auto shows
Yeah, there seem to be orange Mazda2s circulating this week in addition to the green ones we have seen. I wonder if the orange ones aren't as spec'd out as the green ones. They have to cover 8 auto shows this weekend so maybe this was a makeshift solution.FiestaFan said:I just noticed something; the 2 at the St. Louis show (and the one at the Houston Show I went to yesterday, which was identical) appears to be a Euro-spec Mazda2.
