2014 Mazda Mazda5Rick Liwanag - Las Vegas, NV06/17/2016
I've own many cars in the past. I had a Corolla, a Civic, a Kia Rio and a Subie WRX and I'm impress with this one. Besides the seating capacity of a compact SUV, and a van like door access, this Mazda has an impressive handling. Yes, HANDLING; It corners like a car, a sporty kind of car. It accelerate quick enough to cut through traffic,and overall drives like a compact vehicle. It has enough power seat all six people and still has the power to accelerate quickly for you to enter through traffic safely.
Overall this is an impressive car and just a great small family vehicle.
This 4 door minivan is a car and minivan combined. With sliding doors with roll down windows, it is the best of both worlds. USB port, MP3 jack and regular car volt charger you have 3 options to charge your electronic devices. Lots of cubby spots, leg room and head room. Good gas mileage. Third seat row that folds down. It is versatile. Has a third row seat to fold down for storage if taking a trip with 3-4 people. If just going around town you can seat 6-7 people.
Micro-Van, not a mini-van.
2012 Mazda Mazda5TJ Beyer - Pinole, CA12/25/2016
I had a 2012 M-5 as a work vehicle, covering a large territory servicing equipment. I folded down the 3rd row seats, removed one of the middle row seats, and built a shelf to hold parts & tools. I loved the sliding doors on both sides. The trunk hatch might be an issue for someone taller (I'm 5'7").
It was comfortable and fun to drive for several hours a day, good acceleration on the freeway (even when somewhat full of stuff). Good visibility, and enough zip to it to still be fun.
