KBB Expert Ratings Countdown: Mazda

The 2014 Mazda5 is unique among today's automobiles, riding atop a car platform but using sliding side doors like a traditional minivan. About the size of a compact sedan, the Mazda5 can comfortably seat four passengers, six in a pinch. The tall rear liftgate makes loading large or bulky items a breeze, and the 2nd-row captain's-chair seating ensures the kids will be content in their own space. While not terribly powerful, the Mazda5's frugal 4-cylinder engine gets the job done and helps keep the Mazda5's base price around $21,000. Beyond its affordable price and livable dimensions, the Mazda5 is still a Mazda, which means it's ultimately more fun to drive than any lumbering SUV or full-size van.
