2008 Mazda Mazda5 Review

Note: This review was created when the 2008 Mazda Mazda5 was new.

The Mazda5's minivan-like seating and cargo versatility as well as its wagon size and pricing make it one of the top affordable compact wagons. However, it does not have the peppy engine performance associated with Mazda cars, and might not be suited for those who need to carry both a lot of people and cargo.

2008 Mazda Mazda5 Overview

The 2008 Mazda5 is a solid attempt to create a car with the cargo space and practicality of a minivan, while keeping the size of a wagon. "What are they putting in the guava juice at Mazda's design headquarters?" U.S. News reviewer Rick Newman writes. "Whatever it is I want some. In a market filled with nichebusters and me-too copycats, the No. 4 Japanese automaker keeps finding ways to turn out clever, affordable funmobiles that are a bit more creative than the competition." For 2008, the Mazda5 adds a new five-speed automatic transmission and an auxiliary input jack for connecting portable music players to the audio system. The 5 is still available in three trims, the Sport, Touring and Grand Touring, all of which have the same four-cylinder engine. It's part of Ford's C1 platform, along with the Mazda3

This sporty van combines the ride of a sedan, the convenience of a hatchback, the easy access of a minivan, and the utility of a small SUV. Inside, seating for six in three rows offers great flexibility, with a flat-floor design for maximum legroom.

It fits neatly into tight spaces. It presents no visual obstruction to other drivers. But it can carry six passengers and judicious amounts of their stuff.

The 5 has an unmistakably road-friendly character apparent in its responses and ease of parking, and the edge in visibility doesn't hurt.

Who's it for? Well, after living with it a bit, I'd say it's for youngsters, oldsters and many inbetweeners.

As small vehicles go, this one's big. And as minivans go, this one's cool.
