Editor's Overview

A true “mini” van, the 2014 Mazda5 offers room for six in an economically sized package big on value, style and fuel economy. While not as powerful or spacious as the Honda Odyssey or Toyota Sienna, the Mazda5 is also not priced as exorbitantly, either.

No-frills, reliable minivan.

The Mazda 5 is a reliable, fuel efficient car. It does not have many of the infotainment features of the more popular vans, but it also didn't cost $40k like the other models. My main complaint is it lacks storage. Overall, it has been much easier and cheaper to maintain than the Chrysler town and country I had before.

I really like the automatic windshield wipers, heated seats and leather seats. The rear ac comes in really nice when you have back seat riders. With the back 2 seats folded down, there is a lot of storage in the back. The gas mileage this vehicle gets is much better than our old 2004 Chevy actor.

That it has great gas mileage for a "minivan" but it acts like a car and that it's very versatile with the small 3rd row. Good for a family of 4.

I love that my car is like a minivan but gets all the stats of a car. The gas mileage is good, love that the doors slide and then you don't have worry about hitting other car doors. I wish that the back was just a little bit bigger and that the window part on the hatch opened by itself.
