Live from the launch: Mazda2

With up to thirty competitors jostling for position in the supermini segment it is not surprising that many manufacturers choose to gently update their cars as often as possible in an attempt to reheat the original package for a fresh batch of curious customers.

Thus we have the updated Mazda2, a car which can only be considered new in the loosest possible sense of the word. The manufacturer has dubbed the latest model a facelift, but in truth it hasn't so much reheated the car as breathed hard on it from a distance.
