Great for small families who want the functionality of a minivan but don't need all the space. Just got 29-30 mpg on a long road trip. Sliding doors are awesome. Driver's seat leg room could be better if the driver is over 6 ft (like myself), but it's not cramped. A bit of road noise, but it drives and handles better than most cars I've driven. Great 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.
Good car for the money.

We were needing to replace our minivan, and had started to buy another one when we saw the Mazda5. For us, it seemed like a good fit. It would hold 6 people, got decent gas mileage, and it did not look like every other minivan on the road. ( Actually, I think it may be classified as a wagon.) It has performed well, and it is fun to drive. It has decent room for us, although the two back seats are a little short on leg room. Over all, I would advise any one looking for a people mover, to think about a Mazda5.
