Chiseled lines and an aggressive front fascia are a stark contrast to Mazda5′s conservative competition.
Mazda5′s robust front fenders; sweeping, contoured side panels and athletic stance capture the illusion of motion while converging on a sloping roofline and sporty rear spoiler. The sleek rear end combines clean aerodynamic lines and smooth wraparound taillights for a polished look, and available 17-inch alloy wheels create a lasting impression. Rain-sensing windshield wipers and a convenient power moonroof are just some of the available features that round out Mazda5′s dynamic form.
Standard halogen headlights brightly illuminate the path ahead, or choose a model with available Xenon High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights and clear-lens halogen fog lights for brighter, sharper light in all conditions. For help with safer lane changes and enhanced visibility, Mazda5′s side mirrors now feature turn signal indicators. Never again will you have to worry about accidentally leaving your lights on; the available automatic on-off headlights turn on only when you need them and automatically turn off with the engine.
Enjoy the simplicity and convenience of Mazda5′s sliding rear doors and easy-access rear liftgate. A generous 27-inch opening makes sliding doors especially convenient to operate in tight parking spaces or when transporting large cargo. When you need it, the doors latch in the open position so they won’t accidentally slide closed, and child-proof locks keep children safe while the vehicle is in motion. The rear liftgate and low cargo floor make loading and unloading quick, easy and hassle-free.
Rear Backup Sensors
When Mazda5 is shifted into reverse, its available backup sensors help keep you, the vehicle and its surroundings safe. The system alerts you with increasing frequency as distance decreases between the rear bumper and any object that may be within the detection zone.
Comfort for All
Mazda5 boasts a spacious, ergonomic interior with enough features to keep all six passengers in their seats, driver included.
- Remote keyless illuminated entry
- Available power moonroof
- Automatic climate control with independent second-row fan speed controls
- Available heated front seats and leather-trimmed upholstery
- Cruise control with steering-wheel-mounted controls
Three rows. Six passengers. Endless versatility. Mazda5 gives each passenger ample space with a two-seat-per-row layout, while the second-row captain’s chairs recline for extra comfort and relaxation. With the 50/50 split fold-down third row seatback, you can fill up to 44.4 cubic feet of cargo space with ease through the convenient sliding rear doors or easy-access rear liftgate.
Audio & Entertainment
Your favorite music is just a button-push away with Mazda5′s 6-speaker MP3-compatible audio system. Connect your iPod®†† or other MP3 device with the standard auxiliary-audio input jack or USB-audio input port, or for even more tunes on the go, browse through more than 120 music stations with available SiriusXM Satellite Radio.‡‡ An optional DVD Rear-Seat Entertainment System delivers video entertainment on an 8.5-inch screen. Two wireless headsets, a remote control and one game controller are all included.
Bluetooth® Phone & Audio Connectivity
Keeping your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel has never been easier. With the available Bluetooth hands-free system, making and receiving calls is as easy as pushing a button on the steering wheel and saying hello. Bluetooth also allows you to wirelessly stream music from your personal playlist.
Ready to Go
Mazda5 may have sliding doors, but it’s far from your typical minivan. Its 2.5L DOHC engine cranks out 157 horsepower, using variable valve timing (VVT) to help increase power and torque without sacrificing fuel efficiency. Mazda5′s engine can be paired with the precise-shifting 6-speed manual transmission on Sport models or, on Touring and Grand Touring models, the 5-speed Sport automatic with Adaptive Shift Logic and a manual shift mode for extra control.
Suspension & Handling
Enjoy a smoother, more responsive ride with four-wheel independent suspension. Unlike other vehicles with bulky wheel wells that reduce your cargo space, Mazda5′s multilink rear suspension is compact and out of your way. An impressive 36.7-foot turning radius will allow you to maneuver into parking spots that other minivans can’t, and with advanced Electrohydraulic Power Assist Steering, you’ll benefit from even better turning control and quicker feedback.
Drives like a sports sedan, functions like a minivan and sips fuel like a compact. With help from the electronically controlled multiport fuel injection, Mazda5 offers some of the best fuel economy in its class: an EPA-estimated 21 city/28 Highway MPG† for manual and an EPA-estimated 22 city/28 Highway MPG‡ for automatic transmission models.
Active Safety Features
Some things in life are unexpected, so every Mazda5 is prepared with these advanced safety features:
4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and Brake Assist
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution ensures maximum stopping power
Dynamic Stability Control and Traction Control System
Tire-Pressure Monitoring System
The standard engine immobilizer anti-theft system helps protect your vehicle by requiring a properly coded key to start the engine. If a counterfeit key is used, the engine will not start. The available alarm system helps to deter potential damage to or theft of your Mazda5 while parked.
You take every precaution, and so do we. Every angle of the Mazda5 is engineered with your safety in mind. “Triple H” construction, high tensile steel reinforcements and additional spot welds improve structural rigidity and strength without adding extra weight. Six standard airbags, including advanced front and front side-impact airbags and fast-inflating air curtains, help protect the driver and all three rows of passengers in the event of a collision.
