Mazda 5 Discontinued for 2016 Model Year

IRVINE, California — The sporty Mazda 5 minivan will be discontinued for the 2016 model year, Mazda North American Operations confirmed Thursday.

"There are no plans at this time to bring a replacement Mazda 5 to the U.S. market beyond the 2015 model year," the automaker said in a statement as part of its report on changes to the lineup for 2016.

Edmunds' experts said the Mazda 5 is a "good option for small families who don't need all the space and amenities of a full-size minivan but still want three rows of seating."

A good option, perhaps, but not a popular one. Mazda sold only 6,835 Mazda 5s in the United States so far this year, a decline of 22 percent from a year ago, according to its July sales report.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers who have the Mazda 5 on their lists should check in with their Mazda dealer before it's gone for good.
