2015 Mazda 5 In Myrtle Beach!
The 2015 Mazda 5 has a charming simplicity. It combines all the usefulness of a minivan with the nimble driving feel of a small hatchback.
It’s arguably a more exciting option than some of the crossovers most newly minted small families are likely to choose. It provides a good transition vehicle from a family sedan to a minivan, or can do just fine for smaller families that want a little extra flexibility compared to a wagon or hatchback.
Mazda refreshed the looks of the Mazda 5 a few years back. At that time, its compact proportions and boxy fundamentals remained, yet some added contouring in its fenders and a rhythmic flow to its surfaces and creases livened up the exterior. It is indeed a minivan, but at least it’s one that looks different, even sporty.
Sporty yet restrained, as well as surprisingly nimble, are ways to sum the performance of the 2015 Mazda 5. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder has just 157 horsepower and a five-speed automatic is now the only transmission option, but at least it has manual shift control. Acceleration is adequate, thanks to well-chosen gear ratios.
It’s ride and handling that continue to draw our attention to the 2015 Mazda 5, though. The athletic feel starts with top-notch steering and a well-composed ride. The 2015 Mazda 5 is a blast to drive, especially when the road winds. It feels natural and confident, and ride quality is comfortable and absorbent whether you’re cruising on the highway or taking on the tight esses of a mountain road.
The 2015 Mazda 5 is a tall, sliding-door wagon, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. Size-wise, it’s a 7/8-scale minivan. It skips most frills—there’s are no power rear hatch or power folding seats. From the driver’s seat, you might think you’re in a nimble small car, yet there are convenient sliding side doors and oodles of easily re-configurable interior space right behind. Mazda has managed to fit seating for six—three usable rows—in a vehicle that’s shorter than a typical mid-size sedan.
