Replacing Astina with Mazda 2?

Asked by David Owen

I have been looking for a replacement for my Mazda 323 Astina, the Mazda2 being the size I would like but I am advised that it is unsuitable to tow my box trailer. I assume similar cars would have the same problem. I am single, retired and cars like the Mazda CX-3 and Mazda3 are too bulky, large, and over the top for me. Do you know of anything on the horizon that may interest me?

The Mazda2 is rated to tow 500kg unbraked or 900kg braked, which would seem sufficient to handle your box trailer, but it depends on the weight of the trailer. Other cars of a similar size are similarly rated, so if you want to tow more than the Mazda2 is rated for you would need a larger car.
