Mazda MAZDA5 Overview
Not so long ago, many might have said that Mazda's compact, front-wheel drive Mazda 5 minivan was the wrong vehicle for the wrong time. But in this age of high gas prices and scaling back in size and power, the Mazda 5 just might be what drivers want. Smaller than any other minivan on the market, the Mazda 5 comfortably seats six and comes with a price tag that is affordable for families on a tight budget. And like other recent Mazdas, it is impressively packed with features that make it a good value in the eyes of many drivers.
Power is provided by the same fuel-efficient 157-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine used in the Mazda 3 sedans and hatchbacks. An advanced electro-hydraulic steering system provides steering that is firm and responsive, while the sport-tuned suspension features a MacPherson strut design.
Dual sliding doors make it easy to load and unload passengers and cargo, while exterior details include Euro-styled fender-mounted marker lights, a roof-mounted antenna, and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the Mazda 5 is equipped with a stylish black and silver instrument panel, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel with controls for the audio system and cruise control, an adjustable-height front seat, and fold-down second- and third-row seatbacks. Cruise control, air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, power windows, power door locks, and a CD player are also part of the standard package.
In its first year, the Mazda 5 came in two trim packages, the Sport and the Touring. In 2007, its second year, an upscale Grand Touring package, with leather-trimmed seats and a moonroof, was added to the lineup, providing happy drivers with even more reason to like this vehicle.
