The 2.3 liter engine - I think it's peppy. I also like the front seat comfort. It is a 2+2+2 seating arrangement. In my 2010 Mazda 5 cargo volume behind the third row (trunk) is very small but with third row seats folded down it expands to 44 cubic feet and 79 cubic feet with middle row folded down as well. I own a Santa Fe Sport. This Mazda 5 has slightly more room for cargo. We love the individual arm rests for the 4 seats in the front and middle rows. The rear seating is cramped and only small children would fit well. We use it as a very comfortable 4 passenger vehicle with very comfortable seating for all of us, not just the driver. The headroom in the middle accommodates my 6 foot 3 inch son just fine.
Very Happy with this car

It handles very well and is a very comfortable ride. There is considerable room inside and gets good gas mileage.
Couldn't be happier

From sales to finance to service, this has been one of the most positive car buying experiences I've ever had. This my first Mazda I love it. It is smooth riding, plenty of power and lots of cargo capacity. With my physical limitations, it easy to slide in and out of.
