This is the new shape Mazda Demio 2007. In pearl white with alloys, it looks sharp.
The Demio's round shape is good-looking, and could even be called cute. The sides are very sculpted, and the rear window has a unique v-shape to its lower edge.
The first thing you notice when sitting in the Demio is the extra headroom, more than expected for a small car. There is a surprising amount of space in both the front and rear.
According to RightCar, the Demio (20072014) carries a three-star Used Car Safety Rating.
ON THE ROAD
The Demio is very fun-to-drive with quick steering, little body roll and plenty of tyre grip. It also rides very smoothly for such a small car, despite running on tiny 14-inch tyres, a size that is easy to find and cheap to replace.
The turning circle is small at 9.4 metres.
Boot space is acceptable for the class at 280 litres, significantly more than a Suzuki Swift, and enough for two medium suitcases.
