To most people, a regular commute would entail an average of 15 to 30 kilometers a day. In Cebu, im told that to most people, a thirty minute drive is far and long enough for most Cebuanos. So when I joined the Mazda 2 media drive and I was informed that we would do 300 kilometers of highways and provincial roads down south, I silently gulped, smiled and hoped that all the new features of the vehicle as discussed by the Japanese technical design team were spot on. Of all the things that were said about the car three things lingered in my thoughts… Oneness with the car for performance and handling, soul of motion design (KODO) for posterity and snug and comfortable seats for my posterior. Due to the daunting task at hand, the third thought became really important to me, however… knowing that the new Mazda 2 is lighter and sports a more powerful engine turned my thoughts to daydream about open roads, dynamic twisting road sections or even a chance to sneak it on to a race track. I was awakened from my high velocity dream when they announced the vehicle assignments and I was delighted with the news that I will be sharing the car with Senor Bam Olivares and Ronnie “Racing Reyrey” Trinidad.
