The Mazda5 is basically a mini-minivan, with sliding doors and a vertical liftgate out back, in addition to styling reminiscent of minivan. Offered in Sport, Touring, or Grand Touring trims, it's powered by a 2.5-liter, 157-hp, four-cylinder engine with available six-speed manual (Sport only) or five-speed automatic transmissions. Second row bucket seats can recline and slide while 3-row side-curtain airbags provide protection for everyone on board. Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes, electronic stability and traction control, seven airbags, engine immobilizer and adjustable head restraints at all seating positions. The Grand Touring trim adds automatic Xenon headlights, rain sensing wipers and a security system.
For 2014, the Mazda5 carries over from 2013.
