If you have a small family (4) and don't need a ton of space, this "mini" mini van is perfect. We wanted a larger 4 cylinder with some space and style. The Mazda 5 is perfect for what we needed and wanted. Its gets us from point A to point B with ease and comfort, plus lets us take some of the kids friends along in the 3rd row. We love the dual sliding doors and the 2nd row captians chairs. It drives like a car and has a great turn radius. Some have said it lacks power, but we think there's just enough. You really have to drive one to decide. For us the fuel economy outweighs the need for more power. The only thing I might complain about is that the low profile tires don't wear as long as standard tires.

It's a great compact van. Sporty handling, lots of room despite the size, and good on gas.
