2012 Mazda Mazda5 Overview

The word minivan has become somewhat of a contradiction in recent years, as the latest batch of minivans doesn’t really have anything “mini” about them. But for those who want to be able to carry more people, without driving a giant car around, the 2012 Mazda Mazda5 steps into the void.

After taking a year off last year, the Mazda5 has been totally redesigned from the wheels up with all-new styling and a new interior as well. With its sliding side doors and second row captain’s chair seating, the Mazda5 keeps many of the elements you’d ordinarily find in a minivan, but with a much smaller frame. Up front there’s a large helping of the current Mazda design language (yep, there’s that smile) and curvy creases the run from front to back complete the look.

The Mazda5’s engine has also been updated. Power comes from a 157-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder that is mated to a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic transmission. This might seem low in power compared to other people carriers, but take into account that the Mazda5 actually aligns more with crossovers and hatchbacks and it makes more sense.

Fuel economy ratings are 21 mpg/city and 28 mpg/highway respectively, regardless of transmission choice.

Inside, the Mazda5 seats up to six-passengers across three rows. The two-occupants-per-row configuration helps to ensure that whether you’re in the front row or the third you’ll have plenty of room. Standard features include automatic air conditioning, cruise control, auxiliary audio input jack, steering wheel audio controls, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. The Mazda5 can also be spruced up further with Bluetooth® connectivity, heated front seats, moonroof, and leather upholstery.

Safety features include all-disc antilock brakes, six airbags, stability and traction control, and LATCH child safety seating all as standard features.

The 2012 Mazda Mazda5 is a people carrier in the truest sense of the word. If you don’t need or want the giant frame of a minivan or a large SUV, the Mazda5 is definitely worth a peek. Add in the fact that it retains that Mazda fun-to-drive factor and this true “mini” van is hard to overlook.
