Mazda 5

A perked-up version of the Mazda's revolutionary compact MAV has arrived: The Mazda5 is now even more stylish, more convenient and safer.

The model that brought dual sliding back doors to the world of compact vans can now be had in three new body colours – Zeal Red, Jet Black and Meteor Grey. On the inside, meanwhile, there is new seat trim along with the dashboard panel décor in a clean, sleek looking piano black finish.

Already one of the world's safest and most driver-oriented vans, the upgraded Mazda5 has also been given power folding side mirrors with integrated LED turn signals. And to make driving just a little easier, Mazda has added "lane change" turn signals, which are activated by simply tapping the turn signal lever and automatically shut off after blinking three times.

The tire repair kit, meanwhile, makes the Mazda5 even lighter, which saves fuel. Newly available options include a rear parking camera and auto-dimming rear-view mirror, while a USB port, illuminated glovebox and muffler extension are all standard equipment.

Big inside and compact outside, the Mazda5 features an award-winning design delivering class-leading aerodynamics for a smooth, quiet ride with extraordinary linear handling and stability. And that with all the practicality and superb comfort one could expect from Europe's most flexible C-MAV.
