2010 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
We've got the GT for it's leather seats. It is much easier to clean milk spills off of them. We have two kids, 5 and 0.3. A minivan is something way too big for us, but we did want 3 raws seating. This is the best compromise we could find. Besides I've been in love with the looks since I saw it the first time. It's a little cramped. Fitting the rear facing baby seat in the second raw, makes the third raw unusable (almost). Loaded with all of us (plus grandma') there is not much room for stuff. A roof carrier is a must. All in all we feel we struck gold with this one. It fills all our needs and it's easy to park and fun to drive. And it looks cool
Sliding doors! Armrests all around. The five speed gearbox is a huge improvement over the old 4. We like the auto lights and wipers (spoiled). The instrument panel is illuminated well.
2 more inches in length. Auto down on the side window and auo-close for the sunroof (come on!). Rear air bags - tere is not much space between the rear of the vehicle and the seat. Include the European factory roof rack. Refresh the tail lights - this second gen is ugly.
