2010 Mazda 5 Grand Touring 4dr Minivan (2.3L 4cyl 5A)


This is Mazda's version to European Ford C-Max. Very nicely executed. The biggest features are sliding doors, manageable size, super fuel savings, and nice suspension. Also, it's not as noisy as other reviewers have indicated. I've driven it with 3 adults and one child on board and the motor stayed quiet if you don't hit it hard. Just remember it's not a sports car. The motor is a big underpowered though, so it takes quite a while to gain the speed after a sharp turn. Interior buttons are large and well positioned though cheaper plastics in the interior kill the whole mood. Suspension is good, eats small bumps very well.

Best Features

Fuel economy, sliding doors, automatic climate control standard (still can't get it why I should pay for it as an option in many other vehicles, it's a necessity!). Suspension on the softer side, which will not break your teeth over bumps, electronic instruments.

Worst Features

Autostart. Why do I have to hold the key for the car to start? Majority of auto manufacturers have already implemented an autostart where you just torn the key and the car starts without you holder the key in position. Annoying! Mazda -- step up!
