2010 Mazda MAZDA5 Grand Touring Passenger Minivan

2010 Mazda MAZDA5 Review

(3 Stars)  Comfortable, useable, and relatively sporty

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The compact Minivan. A popular option in Europe and Asia has been a hard sell in the past to US customers. While they are logical for traveling with family on narrow roads, US buyers were more interested in large, spacious minivans and even larger SUV's. However, given the current state of gas prices, there may now be a market in this country for such a vehicle.

It has some of the soul of a sporty minivan, such as sliding rear doors and seating for six, but in a much smaller form factor and with much better handling than a full sized minivan can accomplish.

The only drawback is of course due to its size. The front seats don't move back far enough for long legged drivers to be comfortable. Though the seats themselves are fairly comfortable places to be. The second row of seats if fairly roomy both in legroom and headroom, but the third seat is strictly a children only affair, lacking the room for full sized adults.

Power for the Mazda 5 comes from a 2.3 liter four cylinder making 153 HP.
