2005 Mazda MPV Overview

Mazda had made fairly extensive improvements to its MPV minivan for 2003 and 2004. So for 2005, the updates were minor, and essentially involved options such as rear air conditioning and a dimming rearview mirror with readouts for exterior temperature and a compass.
In addition, the entry-level LX-SV trim package returned to the lineup, after having been absent for a year. It joined the LX and upscale ES versions. Power for all three models was provided by a 3.0-liter V6 engine that produced a respectable 200 horsepower. It was linked to a five-speed automatic, which was the only transmission available.
Despite the fact that the LX-SV was an entry-level package, it provided plenty of standard features, including air conditioning, power windows, remote power door locks, dual airbags, a tilt steering wheel, cruise control, power exterior mirrors, velour seats, and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls for the AM/FM/CD stereo system.
The LX version added 16-inch wheels as well as an expanded list of options, including power sliding doors, fog lights, heated exterior mirrors, and a CD changer. The ES version added leather seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a premium audio system with a subwoofer.
The MPV's handling, interior, styling, and flexibility all received high marks from drivers. Interestingly enough, some drivers also noted that they liked the MPV precisely because it was smaller than some of its contemporaries, and because it had plenty of room for passengers or cargo. On the downside, some thought the ride could be rough, and others complained about room in the second seat.
