We've seen plenty of motorcycles take on India's Wall of Death, and even a lion riding in a sidecar do it. But we've never seen a modern car driving perpendicular to the ground until now.

There are roomier compact cars, more luxurious compact cars, and faster compact cars, but if you're looking for a small hatchback that can drive sideways on a wooden wall, the Mazda2 is the car to buy.

There's some helpful consumer advice for you.
