2012 Mazda MAZDA5 Sport Review
Holds 6 people in comfort without being as big as a full size minivan. Minivan-like sliding doors. Good MPG. Handles like a small car and is fun to drive.
I don't have two of these so I have to share with my wife...while the big minivan sits in the driveway awaiting the looser. Cargo room is poor since we fill up five of the six seats, but that is the price you pay for being able to haul a family of five in fun to drive vehicle that is more roomy than a sedan.
Mazda5...wish I Had Two Of Them. — The Mazda5 is fun to drive, responsive and looks good. It hauls the five of us with comfort. It's is perfect for everyday running. Sport model comes with decent options. Sound system is good. I average 20-22 mpg with my stop and go city driving only commute. Climate control works well. Had windows tinted (after market) like a real minivan and that made a big difference inside and out. Love the sliding doors. Fits in the garage with room to spare. The only bad thing is that all 5 of us can not go shopping for groceries or go on a road trip requiring luggage. There simply is no cargo space when all the seats are up. That is why there is still a gas guzzling traditional minivan sitting in my drive way. I wish I could have two of these Mazda5's. My wife loves it and she typically doesn't "love" cars. So we have to share this fun to drive family hauler. If I could I would get another one but with manual transmission for me.
