Mazda 5

2012 Redesign Year
Mazda 5 2015
An underappreciated gem, the Mazda5 has a wide range of attributes, unmatched by any other vehicle on the market. Sliding side doors and seats for six make it an alternative for larger and more-expensive minivans and SUVs. Lots of windows provide a good view out and the tidy footprint aids maneuverability and parking. Nimble and agile handling means it doesn't sacrifice being fun-to-drive either. Further, antilock brakes, traction control, and electronic stability control are standard. Still, there are some downsides. The four-cylinder engine can be overtaxed on hills, or with a full load. Higher noise levels can make it feel less substantial than some larger alternatives. Unlike larger minivans or three-row SUVs; you can't fit six adults and luggage in the Mazda5. If you want cargo space, you're limited to carrying four people.

2006 Redesign Year
Mazda 5 2010
Delivering the utility of a minivan in a package with the agility, maneuverability and economy of a small car, the Mazda5 boasts responsive handling, a comfortable ride and a relatively quiet interior. Though fuel economy is a decent 23 mpg overall, the 2.3-liter, four-cylinder engine feels weak when hauling full loads or climbing hills. On the other hand, visibility and access are excellent. The Mazda also has flexible seating for four passengers and their luggage, or it can accommodate six people with little luggage. Model year 2008 brought a five-speed automatic transmission, which improved fuel economy slightly. Stability control was added as a standard feature for 2010.
