The 2015 Mazda5 is a true "mini" van. Based on the last-generation Mazda3, it offers the parking-lot maneuverability of a compact
hatchback, but with the sliding doors and cargo flexibility of a van, with good fuel economy, too. While not as roomy as a full-size minivan like the
Honda Odyssey, it is considerably cheaper.
New Features and Revisions
The 2015 Mazda5 is carried over from last year, with no new features. However, you've missed your chance if you wanted the manual-transmission model, as it's been dropped this year. EPA city fuel economy also slips one point to 21 mpg.
