2009 Mazda Mazda5 Sport 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
We are looking for a mini van type of car without the mini van look that will work with our two little boys. That's about the only one on the market now fits our need. We also looked at Kia Rondo, but we don't like the look of the car and the fact it doesn't have the sliding door. We got a base model 5 and installed after market navigation system and DVD. After market DVD player looks much nicer and takes a lot less space. Kids love it. And this is the only car my wife actually loves to drive. We are getting about 23-24 miles in town.
Look, sliding door, handling, great turning radius and price.
No ESC. More horse power. I wouldn't mind pay a few thousand more for a hybrid model.
