With excellent handling and a sporty look, the Mazda Axela is an attractive (and popular) option from the small car offerings.
Exterior design inspiration for the Axela came from Mazdas sports cars, the RX-8 and the MX-5. The front is sleek,with swept back headlights, featuring smaller, inset circular lights. The tail lights have a similar look, and the corners of the car extend to accommodate them.
The front seats are designed to look sporty with contrasting fabric to highlight where there is a little extra padding. They are big and supportive, and the driver's can be adjusted for height. The steering wheel adjusts for both reach and angle, so its easy for anyone to get comfortable. Rear legroom is adequate for adults.
