Mazda 2 performs a "wheelie" after colliding into a Nissan Qashqai at a red light

Mazda 2 performs a "wheelie" after colliding into a Nissan Qashqai at a red light

Wheelies seem like a pretty cool trick or stunt to look at.

Motorcyclists are not the only ones that can perform such stunts, but drivers can also perform wheelies.

Don't believe me? Watch it here: 

What Happened?

A Mazda 2 hatchback that performed a last-minute lane change near a red light ended up rear-ending a Nissan Qashqai instead.

However, the Nissan SUV easily absorbed the blunt impact from the collision.

The rock-hard sturdiness of the Nissan SUV resulted in the Mazda 2 mounting it and doing a "wheelie" on its right wheels. 

For a moment, it seemed as though the Mazda 2 was about to turn turtle.

Luckily, the Mazda 2 regained its stability and safely landed on all four wheels. 

It then travelled quite a distance before stopping in the middle of the junction.

Cannot handle a Mazda 2, but might be able to handle a F1 car🤔

Of course other brands also have good handling and composed cars, depending on the models. ^_^^_^

Driving the 6 and CX-30 must have been fun!

Oh....I must admit that driving the Mazda 2 (only driven the sedan form) and Mazda CX3 is more fun!  Not to say that the Mazda 6 and CX30 are bad, but the 2 and CX3 being small, they are very very nimble and chuckable around corners.

wow, I had the impression that the 6 and CX-30 were more "fun" because of their power output. But yes, I do agree that smaller cars are very chuckable around corners😉

Mazda 6 and CX30 got more power but they are also heavier and bulkier, the power to weight ratio is not better. They feel more planted though. But the smaller Mazda 2 and CX3 just feel livelier. Different kind of driving vibe.
The Mazda 3 (especially the HB) would be a nice compromise though. Those are my personal opinion and sentiment.

Yup, I agree with you on the power to weight ratio and the point on the Mazda 3! IMO, I feel the Mazda 3 also seems like a good car for first-time owners. What do you think?

It's a fine car. If you are buying a car, it will be good for you to go around the showrooms to try out and test-drive your shortlisted models.

Everything is a compromise of many things. And each car model has its own strength over others and short-comings compared to others. It will be good to get one that is the best compromise with deficiencies that you can overlook or are not so crucial.

It took me several rounds of visit and test-drivings of various makes and models before me and my family decided on a cx30.

Unless you are a car person and already know which car you wanna get😉 

The CX-30 is a good choice of car! Something I like about Mazda is that it offers something different from most Japanese/Korean cars - the 6-speed (A) transmission instead of the CVT transmission.

That's a major factor. The driving characteristic of a torque converter AT is different from that of CVT. My previous 3 cars used CVT and I didn't feel enjoyable. 😁

And the Sport mode, sometimes it feels so intoxicating to use.😁

On a brighter note, CVT seems to be more fuel efficient😊 Its all about the give and take!

NGL, but 'S' mode feels a lot more shiok to use when using paddle shifters. A pity Mazda cars doesn't come with paddle shifters.

"...CVT seems to be more fuel efficient..." They are designed for fuel efficiency. But it can't handle too much power and torque. And I don't like that they revved up high and hold high rev when om acceleration.

"A pity Mazda cars doesn't come with paddle shifters". I think some models have. If not then install post-purchase, OEM units, plug-and play installation. I did that.😁

I went to check already, but apparently paddle shifters is not a Mazda-type of thing😐

Wow, you are the first person I know that installed aftermarket paddle shifters😆

The shifters are OEM item. Full functionality, i.e, works in both D and M modes.

Mazda 2 owner here.. Paddle shift could indeed be retrofitted. I have done it nearly a year ago and so far my wife hasn't noticed anything strange behind the steering wheel. Definitely cheap thrill to change gear when in D mode.

As for driving wise, my nearest comparison would be the 2008 Honda Fit RS and I would say that while it lacks in the interior functionality (versatile seats and whatnot), Mazda 2 definitely gives a better driving pleasure. There's this hissing sound when changing from the 2nd to 3rd gear, which adds on to the cheap thrill (can't figure out why the rest of the gears don't have it though). I hope it's not because something is wrong because my friends' Mazda 3s do the same thing..

Can't attest if my car would still be upright if facing the same situation as the video and I wouldn't want to find out.

  • 5 reasons why staycations are still relevant

    We all missed being able to travel during the dark and uncertain days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even when Vaccinated Travel Lanes were introduced, few of us were interested. After all, undergoing numerous PCR tests is uncomfortable and being subject to quarantines, especially if you catch COVID, is hardly how anyone wants to spend their holiday. So, a lot of folks became 'tourists in their own country'. And staycations, or staycays for short, became popular. Being cooped up in one's ho
