The community thinks...
2013 Mazda5 Touring- Love every minute of driving ! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 08/25/2013. Trim: 2013 Mazda Mazda5 Touring, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Functionality and simplicity. The Mazda5 is all about Value and Versatility in everyday life. Mazda is first in Quality behind Lexus. This smart family-friendly work horse will likely survive as a hand-me-down to later generations. 2012 and on is greatly improved features and perfected each year. It's shape utilizes every inch of the 7/8th micro-van shape. I love the solid sound of the door slam. Efficient under second-row captain chair storage is simply brilliant. Rack & pinion steering makes it so much fun to drive. This smaller size is easier to wax, which I do 3-4 times a year. I rented the car in LA by accident, and loved it so much, I decided to buy it for it's handling, versatility.
Cons: Although it is written 22 mpg city, I can easily get 25+ without trying. The same engine in my wife's 2011 M3 hatchback get 37 mpg on highways. I would have like to see a more "sexy" console; but then, the Mazda5 is all about functionality and value- not frills. I would rather they keep costs down, than hype insignificant trinkets.Some writers fuss over the lack of Nav; but a cheaper GPS on the dash for long trip is preferred to keep costs down, and actually safer to keep from break-ins. I was use to my previous car radio with the scrolling song titles and miss that here. A minor thing.
Overall review: Mazda 5 has so many user-friendly features, overlooked by many, but build in as part of the overall concept of versatility and exceptional value. There are not many ways to shape a mini-van "box", but I feel the M5 is stylish, aerodynamic, and I like it.
