A Real Fuel Saver

"This MAZDA5 is a very logical and practical, especially given our national interest in fuel economy. Here's a vehicle that will seat six people and still let you bring along some belongings, but it won't suck down a barrel of oil every hour at cruising speeds and it's incredibly easy to maneuver through parking lots and city traffic."

Impressive Price + Cargo Space

Best Alternative to a Minivan

"More Agile Than a Typical Minivan"

"It's more agile than a typical minivan and easier to park, which is something to consider for those who don't really need all the space of a bigger van."

"Nimble Around-Town Machine"
