CAR COMPARISON: 2018 Honda Jazz vs. 2018 Mazda2 Hatchback

The compact city car category offers so much value these days that pound-for-pound, it’s the class where you get the biggest bang for the buck. It wasn’t that long ago when buying a city car meant you have to compromise on space and refinement, but now, this supposedly entry-level category offers creature comforts that rival those way above its class. Take the Honda Jazz and Mazda2, for example–the former has a cabin size that would make its competitors blush, while the latter is a small car that’s genuinely upscale in every aspect. The best thing about both cars? Their price tag is well within the budget of most car buyers. Though this is generally an advantage, it’s also what makes it hard to choose between them. CARMUDI PHILIPPINES provides a spec-by-spec comparison of the top variants of two of the hottest compact cars in the land to inform your purchase.
