I have a newborn and before purchasing the Mazda 5 we had a mid-size sedan. It was a hassle to put the baby in and out of the car. We bought this car for the following reasons: 1. good gas millage 2. comfortable for the baby 3. design, So far it has met our expectations. We are more than pleased with our purchase.
fodable third row. dual a/c. automatic and manual transmission. design. 6 cd changer.
I guess the only things I can think of is a little more room in the trunk, as there is no space when the third row is being used. and maybe a little more power when accelerating wouldn't hurt.
