2013 Mazda Mazda5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
a fully loaded alternative to a minivan, for half the price, but equally practical!
sliding rear doors
perfect height to access contents
ample trunk space
i wish it was designed with built-in roof racks similar to the subaru outback, or most suv's and minivans nowadays...oem/aftermarket crossbars+roof racks will cost almost $1k!
this car has a lot of ingenious storage compartments, however, most of them are either too small or too narrow to accomodate regular stuff...get rid of the small pockets up front and increase the size of the glove box, center console.
another thing that bothers me is the lack of electrical outlets...in this age of gadgetries that consistently need charging, i expect more than 2 outlets up front, and at least 2 more for the 2nd row...currently, the second row has no outlet.
