Overview
Mazda introduced the Mazda 5 in 2006 as a "mini" minivan, with 4-cylinder power and seating for 6. It replaced the larger MPV, which had seating for 7 and V-6 power. The Mazda 5 is based on the Mazda 3 platform, but its wheelbase is 4.4 inches longer and the overall length is 4.3 inches longer. Like the Mazda 3, it offers only front-wheel drive. Its smaller size and Mazda 3 roots make the Mazda 5 sportier than other minivans. The Mazda 5 has sliding rear side doors and three rows of seats, including first- and second-row buckets and a 2-passenger, 50/50-split folding third-row bench. The second-row seats recline, fold flat, and slide fore and aft. The third-row seats tip forward individually and fold flat. With the second- and third-row seats folded, the Mazda 5 has 70.9 cubic feet of cargo volume. Since the Mazda 5 was cosmetically revised for 2008, only color changes have been made for 2009.
