2009 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


To fit 3 rows of seats in this little vehicle, some corners, or knees have to be cut. Make sure you fit in, take full advantage of the telescoping steering wheel and you'll get an exciting vehicle. It's easy to park, VERY nimble and accelerates quickly with the 5 gear transmission. I see it as a Swiss Army Knife. Small and versatile. How many times did I say small? Not enough! I am 6.1 and my wife is 5.7. The driver seat is all the way back. We have an infant carrier behind us, which is way longer than a car seat or regular person, so that seat is also all the way back. There would not be much leg room left in the third row seat. But there are 3 people seating on the right side of the car

Best Features

Sliding doors, second row seats - reclining and sliding. The looks and small size (outside). Quietness and nimbleness. Armrests all around.

Worst Features

Make it two inches longer. Find a way to tint windows in the factory. Provide a rear crush test. My daughter is really close to the rear door. ALLOW MANUAL TRANSMISSION ON ALL TRIMS! Bring the roof rack from Japan and Europe!
