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 has been a great little mini-minivan. It gets so much better gas mileage than most all other minivans. It rides quite smoothly for it's size. One thing I wish is that Mazda, and ALL car designers for that matter, would make the height of BOTH the driver's AND PASSENGER's seat were adjustable in height. I'm short, and my husband is tall; I am usually doing the driving, and so it's really a nuisance that he can't lower the passenger side seat. Also, sun visor extenders are needed, and should be standard. The A/C and heat are great! No more sweaty kids when we arrive anywhere!
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.
