2014 Mazda 5 Release Date

Release date | Specification | Price | Review

We are waiting to see 2014 Mazda 5 model that according to our information#8217;s will deliver changes on both exterior and interior. For 2013 we did not receive any significant changes, instead of six disc charger we now have USB/iPod connection which is a nice feature.

Standard minivans keep growing, and for smaller households that do not require such substantial acreage, the 2014 Mazda 5 splits the difference. Completely revamped in 2012, the Mazda 5 stays a mini-minivan for those with modest demands, with 2 seats in each of its three rows instead of the seven- or eight-passenger configurations of full-size vans. If you seldom ferry more than five passengers, there#8217;s a good chance you#8217;ll simply enjoy the nearly 45 cubic feet of cargo space offered by keeping the third row semi-permanently folded.

The Mazda 5 offers another advantage that can#8217;t be understated: It#8217;s pretty fun to drive. Some automakers may boast that their minivan handles like a car, but with a sporty suspension and precise steering, the Mazda 5 actually does. This is true whether you#8217;re taking the road less traveled or just navigating the strip mall parking area.

And its humble size makes the 5 easier to maneuver with tight areas and slot into compact parking spots.

Review Of Mazda 5

The 2014 Mazda 5 isn#8217;t for everyone. Offered that, the 5 works best as a niche#8211; yet still extremely enticing#8211; option to mainstream vans like the 2013 Honda Odyssey and 2013 Toyota Sienna.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

The 2014 Mazda 5 is a three-row, six-passenger compact minivan readily available in Sport, Touring and Grand Touring trim levels. The base Sport comes standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, full power accessories, keyless entry, cruise control, automatic climate control (with rear vents and fan controls), a height-adjustable motorist seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, USB port and an auxiliary audio jack.

The 5 Touring adds 17-inch alloy wheels, foglights, a rear spoiler, rear parking sensors, a leather-wrapped wheel and shifter, a journey computer and Bluetooth phone and audio connection. The optional Moonroof Audio package adds a sunroof and satellite radio to the Touring. This package comes standard on the 5 Grand Touring, which likewise gets automatic xenon headlights, heated mirrors, automatic wipers, driver lumbar modification, heated front seats, natural leather upholstery and satellite radio.

The Mazda 5 likewise provides several options consisting of remote ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a rear-seat entertainment system and a Garmin portable navigation system.

Powertrains and Performance

Every 2014 Mazda 5 is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 157 horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed manual is standard on the Sport, while a five-speed automatic is optional on the Sport and standard on everything else.

In Edmunds performance testing, a 5 Grand Touring accelerated from zero to 60 mph in 9.5 seconds#8211; slower than most typical minivans and many compact SUVs. A Mazda 5 with the manual transmission returns an estimated 21 mpg city/28 highway and 24 mpg combined. The automatic transmission does 1 mpg better in city driving.


Every Mazda 5 comes with standard stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, front side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. In Edmunds brake testing, the 5 came to a stop from 60 mph in 130 feet#8211; a couple of feet longer than average.

Interior Design and Special Features

Mazda 5

The Mazda 5 is clearly smaller than what passes for a minivan today, but it still packs loads of interior adaptability. Comfortable second-row captain#8217;s chairs slide and recline, while the passenger-side seat features a nifty fold-out center table/storage net that can snap into place between the seats, then be stowed away later on to create a walk-through to the third row.

Up front, the dash layout looks sleek, simple and modern, with the exception of a dash panel heavy with audio control buttons. But controls are easy to reach and use, which helps the 5 feel a lot more like a regular vehicle from behind the wheel. The front seats provide respectable comfort, though taller folks may want even more rearward seat travel.

Aided by wide moving door openings, the Mazda 5#8242;s third row offers easier access than simply about any three-row crossover we can think of. The 50/50-split-folding seats are best suited to children. With just 30.5 inches of legroom back there, close quarters and a sloping roof consuming headroom, adult travelers will not stifle their grumbles for long (the second row, by contrast, offers 9 inches more legroom).

The Mazda 5 could genuinely stand for a #8220;mini#8221; van, it does not do not have freight volume. Folding the third-row seats yields 44.4 cubic feet of space, while dropping the 2nd row increases that to 97.7 cubic feet#8211; just 10 cubes shy of the full-size Nissan Quest#8217;s total cargo capacity.

Driving Impressions

The 2014 Mazda 5 deftly mixes energy with speed and urban maneuverability. Think of the Mazda 5 even more as a tall sport wagon with additional room.

Mazda 5 Van

If there#8217;s any compromise on the Mazda 5#8242;s balance sheet, it#8217;s the four-cylinder engine. Although it has enough power for day-to-day errands, acceleration is still quite pokey, particularly on hills or when completely filled. Neither does the 2.5-liter offer much better fuel economy than V6-powered full-size vans.
