The Mazda 5 offers great value for the money.
I purchased a brand new 2012 model in March 2013 with a nice discount where
the price was comparable to a 2013 Hyundai Elantra.
At that price, the extra room of the Mazda 5 made it an unbeatable deal.
The Mazda 5 touring is a great vehicle because it fits 6 passengers, it is fun to drive, it is the perfect size for a person who either wants a smaller minivan or a larger car.
This vehicle can take kids around but also serves as a nice commuter car with ample room and height when compared to other cars.
Seating capacity for 6.
Middle and back seats fold down to give room for cargo space if needed.
Fun to drive.
More power to the transmission when going uphill.
Gas mileage could be better.
