Mazda's crowd-pleasing supermini is now available with a boot for added practicalities while retaining all the adored characteristics of the hatch.

Before Apple introduced the larger and thinner Plus variant to the iPhone 6, users who wanted a smartphone with a sizable screen often opted for Samsungs. But when the iPhone 6 Plus arrived, the world went wild.

Similarly, before Mazda released the sedan variant of the fourth generation Mazda2, people looking for a compact sedan turned to cars like the Chevrolet Sonic Sedan, Hyundai Accent 4D and Mitsubishi Attrage for solutions to their transport needs.

And with titles like sgCarMart's Compact Hatchback of the Year 2015 under its belt, the Mazda2 Hatchback has already proven itself as dominant force in its segment. Seeing that sedans have more rigid bodies than hatches and a much larger luggage area, how will the Mazda2 Sedan fare?

Aside from an adorable tail that delivers a more balanced design, the sedan sports the same personable face

Up close and Personal

Some compact sedans tend to look a little awkward as their boots appear to be an afterthought addition but the Mazda2 Sedan has all the right proportions that encompass the company's Kodo styling philosophy.

The addition of a 440-litre boot is managed by extending the body of the sedan by 260mm over that of the hatchback. However, both cars share the same platform, so the wheelbase remains the same at a substantial 2,570mm.

What the Mazda2 Sedan also shares is the Hatch's signature long nose, strong grille shape, sleek sheet metal and sporty 16-inch wheels. Not forgetting build quality, which is just as great despite being made in Thailand instead of Japan.

There is also no difference in cabin styling between the variants. Along with the centrally-mounted Mazda Connect integrated navigation and infotainment system, the dashboard is tastefully finished and the seats are comfortable and nicely shaped.

Foldable bike cyclists and golfers can now rejoice with an added 190 litres of glorious storage capacity
