KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 12/23/2013

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.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you have need for more room than a small station wagon or sedan can provide, but you're not interested in driving a "mom-mobile," the 2014 Mazda5 offers many minivan virtues in a fun-to drive, efficient and affordable vehicle.

You May Not Like This Car If...

There is no substitute for the power of a V6, so if you must have one, the Dodge Grand Caravan comes closest to the Mazda5's price point and features a standard V6 engine. The Mazda5 is also lacking in high-tech creature comforts such as power sliding doors, touch-screen navigation and infotainment.

What's New for 2014

There are no major changes planned for the 2014 Mazda5.

Driving It Driving Impressions

In a world of oversized lumbering family vehicles, the Mazda5's nimble road manners and compact size come as a breath of fresh air. While we are certain hard-core driving enthusiasts are not going to be flocking to this car, those in need of a second family vehicle may find the Mazda5 the perfect fit. Of course, the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder isn't going to smoke the tires, but it can move even a loaded Mazda5 with enough urgency to pass muster with most drivers, and you can get it with a 5-speed manual. Best of all, the Mazda5's slick suspension setup sacrifices nothing in the form of ride comfort to achieve its zippy attitude. More pluses? Visibility from the driver's seat is excellent, seating in the first two rows is comfortable and spacious, and the dash is intelligently laid out.

Favorite Features

Given that it's no bigger than a Mazda3 sedan, the versatility and roominess of the Mazda5 interior are nothing short of astounding. Fold the 3rd-row seat flat and 44.4 cubic feet of cargo space opens up. Small storage cubbies throughout the cabin help safely stow smaller items.

Be it the base model starting around $21,000 or a loaded Grand Touring out the door for around $26,000, it's hard to find fault with the Mazda5 value story.
