Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
2013 Mazda5 models receive mirror-mounted LED turn signals, a USB audio input, rear backup sensors in Touring and Grand Touring models, and new exterior color choices. The available 6-disc CD changer says goodbye. Models with the automatic transmission gain one mpg in city fuel economy to reach a rating of 22 mpg.
The 2008 MAZDA5 gets a slight face lift featuring a new grille, headlight and taillight design. A revised dash includes a new center console, electroluminescent gauges and second-row fan-speed controls. A new five-speed automatic becomes standard on Touring and Grand Touring trims.
There's nothing else quite like the Mazda5 among new cars today. The 2013 Mazda5 can best be thought of as a miniature minivan. In length it's the size of a compact sedan, yet the Mazda5 can seat up to six passengers and has dual sliding doors and a rear liftgate that allow easy access for passengers and cargo. Unlike traditional minivans, the Mazda uses a smaller, more fuel-efficient engine and has a starting price under $21,000. Then there is the Mazda5's biggest surprise: its driving dynamics. The words "minivan" and "fun to drive" usually don't mix, but the Mazda5 is an exception. What the Mazda5 lacks in size and power compared to others, it makes up for in driving manners, fuel efficiency and value.
