CleanMPG?s Car of the Year and you decide who wins!

Mazda made a splash earlier this year with a sub-compact (B-Class) platform that not only looked great but weighed almost 100 pounds less than its predecessor and included safety features and capabilities not seen in a vehicle at this price previously. Called the Demio in Japan, its real claim to fame came about in late March when it won the coveted World Car of the Year award as judged by a panel of 47 journalists from around the world. The Mazda2 equipped with an optional 1.4L turbo-diesel achieves 57.4 mpgUS combined on the NEDC (~ 47 mpgUS combined on the 08 EPA) albeit with a somewhat sluggish 15.4 seconds to 60 mph.
