2006 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I bought our Mazda 5 earlier this year, we were looking for for an economical alternative to an SUV, and this does the job fine. I am 6'3", and the front and second row seats are quite comfortable. The gas mileage is great, the handling is first-rate, and it makes a great family vehicle. My wife picks up our son and 4 neighbor kids from school every day and they love the car. We've also managed to load bicycles, a large dog crate, and have plenty of room left over.
Easy to park and maneuver in tight places, sunroof, fuel economy.
Trailer hitch capability, more horsepower on the engine, AWD availability.
