2009 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
I was pretty skeptical that I would ever like a minivan, but we love our Mazda 5. I am amazed by how well it handles and how fun it is to drive. It doesn't have that big bloated feel and look of other minivans. We get better fuel economy than quoted for this vehicle. The good fuel efficiency and availability of a manual transmission is what sold us on this vehicle, but we have been equally impressed with the utility and ride quality. It has a very nimble feel to it that makes you forget you are driving a van.
Manual Transmission, Fuel Efficiency, Small Size and Excellent Handling
Optional fold out 3rd seat for the second row as is available in European versions. More options available together with a manual transmission.
