Standard on both the Sport and Touring versions are 17-inch alloy wheels. Our test car was equipped with Toyo Proxes A18 tires. Mazda 5, a compact minivan that seats six yet still fits neatly into compact parking spots. Smaller than a minivan but taller than a wagon, the Mazda 5 is unique in the U.S. market. An in-dash six-disc CD changer with steering-wheel-mounted audio controls is standard on the Mazda 5. Simple and pleasing to the eye, the gauge cluster illuminates green at night. To the left of the four-speed automatic shifter with manual mode, you'll find easy-to-operate controls for the navigation system. The America-bound Mazda 5 should look identical to this European version, save different bumpers. Mazda claims its zoom-zoom DNA runs through the 5's taut suspension. Mazda 5's 2.3-liter DOHC 16-valve inline-four engine delivers 157 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and produces 148 lb-ft of torque at 4,500 rpm. Somewhat annoying, the glovebox is positioned too low. When you have a front-row passenger, it can't be opened more than a couple of inches. Items up to 5 feet 3 inches can lie flat on the 5's cargo floor. Twin sliding doors that can be opened with just one finger allow for easy access to the second row. 2006 Mazda 5 A handful of exterior details distinguishes the entry-level Sport model from the Touring model, including the addition of foglamps, body-colored mirrors, side skirts and a rear spoiler for the Touring. Seventeen-inch alloy wheels are standard on both models. Brushed metal adds an upscale feel to the Mazda 5's interior. The optional seven-passenger seating configuration may be limited to the European market. The Mazda 5 has theater-style seating, meaning the hip point of each seat is 2 inches higher than the seat in front of it. Third-row passengers will find legroom a little stingy. But they get cupholders and adjustable headrests. 2006 Mazda 5 Mazda 5 handles well around town but could use a little more power for highway driving. The Mazda 5's front grille bears a close resemblance to the rest of the Mazda family. The optional automatic transmission has a manual-shift mode to allow drivers to work their own way through the gearbox. The 5's rear hatch opens to two different levels, making it easier for shorter drivers to close it. Only one interior color option is available in the Mazda 5, black with silver trim.
