Since the introduction of the SUV, minivans aren’t the most popular vehicle in the world.  However, the Mazda5 serves many useful purposes if you have a large family or just need a lot of cargo space.  In fact, the Mazda5 in has been named the 2013 “Minivan of the Year” by Autobytel.

The 2013 Mazda5 can best be thought of as a miniature minivan. In length it’s the size of a compact sedan, yet the Mazda5 can seat up to six passengers comfortably and has dual sliding doors and a rear lift gate that enables easy access for passengers and cargo. Stop by Phoenix Mazda to see for yourself.

The Mazda5 includes many great features and accessories that are sure to meet all of your needs.  A base 2013 Mazda5 Sport comes standard  with cruise control, automatic climate control, remote keyless entry, manual driver’s seat with height adjustment, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD system with USB and auxiliary inputs. Touring versions add features such as backup sensors, Bluetooth connectivity, an automatic transmission, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The interior is probably the most functional in its class. With fold-flat second and third rows, and convenient storage areas such as under-seat cubbies in the 2nd-row captain’s chairs, there’s plenty of space for people and stuff. Safety features on all models include six airbags throughout all three rows, traction control and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist.

Under the hood, the 2013 Mazda5 uses a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 157 horsepower and 163 lb-ft of torque, according to cars.com. The Mazda5’s engine is coupled with a 5-speed automatic transmission. All Mazda5s are front-wheel drive and can run on regular unleaded gasoline boasting 22 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
