The Mazda5 is an MPV with excellent form and function, its striking exterior clearly influenced by the brand's hatchback and saloon models. The dynamic front end flows around to long flanks on each side, featuring curved indentations that channel air down the flanks. Durable black bumper inlays hold front fog lights, joined by vibrant halogen headlamps and a 'Brilliant Black' front grille.
The cabin maximises space for its seven occupants, with ample room for masses of luggage the result of Mazda's Karakuri seating system. With sliding side doors, manoeuvring in and out is straightforward, and all occupants benefit from generous head and leg room. The cabin controls are laid out in an uncluttered fashion, and can be accessed by touch alone so your eyes remain fixed on the road.
There is a choice of one petrol and one diesel engine to drive the Mazda5, each married with six-speed manual transmission for smooth gear changes. The 2.0-litre MZR is the quickest option, while the 1.6-litre diesel boasts fuel economy of 54.3mpg. Engine speed-sensing steering enables responsive handling at any pace, making the Mazda5 pleasingly agile when fully loaded. The vehicle is fitted with a variety of advanced equipment as standard, most notably the 6.5-inch sat nav, integrated Bluetooth®, trip computer, AUX input, USB port and steering wheel-mounted controls.
