Vehicle Overview
The new Mazda Mazda5 features flexible seating that can be reconfigured to maximize passenger or cargo space. Space in the center of the cabin is intended to ease communication, and occupants enjoy tiered seating in three rows.

Aimed at young, professional families with active lifestyles, the Mazda5 will come in Sport and Touring trim levels when it goes on sale in late 2005.

The Mazda5 has a wedge shape that's characterized by a raked windshield but a relatively upright rear liftgate. The liftgate stops at two different heights, and the rear roof pillar is angled back toward the liftgate to provide extra head clearance. Large sliding doors and a low floor promise easy entry and exit.

The underbody architecture and suspension design are shared with the automaker's Mazda3 compact car. MacPherson struts are used in front, and a multilink suspension goes in the rear. Alloy wheels hold 17-inch tires. Fog lamps, a rear spoiler and side skirts are installed on the Touring model.

The second-row seats can slide and recline in the six-occupant interior. Mazda says the center of the dashboard was raised so the controls are within easy reach and the instruments are closer to eye level. A large speedometer with a white background dominates the three-gauge cluster. The gearshift is mounted on a center panel.

Standard equipment on the Sport model includes a CD stereo, cruise control, and power windows and locks. The Touring model adds an in-dash six-CD changer.

Under the Hood
The Mazda5's 2.3-liter four-cylinder produces 157 horsepower and 148 pounds-feet of torque. Either a five-speed-manual or four-speed-automatic transmission with a manual-shift mode can be installed.

Antilock brakes incorporate electronic brake-force distribution, and the side curtain-type airbags protect all three rows of seats. Side-impact airbags for the front seats are standard.
