2006 Mazda MPV Overview

Fans of the Mazda MPV noted that it was a true minivan in an era when many passenger vans could more accurately have been described as maxivans. And, in fact, Mazda touted exactly that fact, noting that the MPV was small yet versatile, with changeable second- and third-row seats, so it can carry either passengers or cargo. According to Mazda, the MPV was also nimble, easy to park, lighter in weight than its competitors, and sporty, with five-spoke alloy wheels, fender flares, and low-profile headlights.
New colors, including Brilliant Black, Bronze Metal, and Galaxy Gray, were available for 2006. Three trim packages were available. The entry-level LX-SV came with CFC-free air conditioning, power windows and door locks, a six-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo system, dual-front airbags, 15-inch wheels, and four-wheel disc brakes with the anti-lock braking system.
The LX package included 16-inch wheels, a front underspoiler, a rear underskirt, and an expanded list of options, including an All-Sport options package, an LX Plus package, and a towing package.
The upscale ES version added dual power sliding rear doors, leather seats, side-impact airbags, fog lamps, and traction control.
All versions were powered by a 200-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 engine, which was linked to a five-speed automatic transmission.
Many drivers noted that although the MPV was nimble, attractive, and versatile, it didn't offer as many features and options as some of its competitors. On the plus side, drivers liked the MPV's value, and considered it a good option for families who couldn't afford higher-priced minivans.
