2014 Mazda 5: The Look of a Minivan But Not the Size

2014 Mazda 5

In the Mazda tradition of offering interesting as well as reliable vehicles for shoppers to enjoy, the Mazda 5 is very unique indeed. Coming in with a size that is only about as large as a compact sedan, the Mazda 5 has a sliding side door like a minivan but sits on a car platform. This vehicle is taller than a typical sedan and offers the ability to load bulky items in the rear with the tall rear lift gate access, but only offers a seating arrangement for up to six in the vehicle. Along with all this the Mazda mantra of “zoom zoom” rings true with the Mazda 5 by offering plenty of fun while driving.

Virtually unchanged from the 2013 models, the Mazda 5 is not the typical “mom-mobile” minivan but rather a smaller, sleeker, better handling vehicle that allows owners to know they made a great choice because of the easy to love handling and zippy acceleration. The only real knocks on this vehicle is the lack of electronic upgrades. The sliding doors do not offer a power option, and there is no touch screen to add for infotainment or navigation. This vehicle also does not offer a V6 at all, but it is otherwise a great car to drive.
