It’s also filled with standard features you might not expect at such an affordable price. Like air conditioning. Power windows door locks and outside mirrors. A 60/40 split folding rear seatback. Remote keyless entry system. An integrated central control center that houses the climate controls and an MP3 audio system with auxiliary-audio input jack. And on the MAZDA2 Touring a leather-wrapped steering wheel with built-in audio controls and cruise control switch. 6 airbags Dynamic Stability Control Standard Traction Control and Triple H body construction keeps you and your loved ones safe and sound. The 2012 Mazda There’s no oversized when you overachieve.
