Fun to drive

Nice car, fun to drive, plenty of room. Love the quite drive Everything we wanted in a new car! Has a lot of get up and go!

5.0

I bought a used 2015 Mazda5 touring edition.

Love that it holds 4 car seats and 2 adults. Easy to understand console. Can turn into a huge storage vehicle when seats are folded down. Looks good for the outside. Small width so parks easily. I'm short and the driver's seat gets very close up. Powerful pick up in traffic, too.

4.1

Great car, great value, great style

The Mazda 5 is the perfect car to meet my family's needs. Happy with the style, more than enough space for each of my two girls to stay out of reach others hair.
