2008 Mazda MAZDA5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
We looked at all competitors. Hands down the best vehicle for the price. Lots of standard features, and we bought a sport (base) model. Rondo was weird looking. Others were nice, but much more expensive. Car handles extremely well and is very fun to drive.
Sliding side doors and sporty handling.
Armrest on front passenger seat. Remote keyless start should be standard.
