Mazda 5 Coming This Summer

Mazda will have the Mazda5, a small five-seat minivan, this summer in the United States. What do you think? I kinda dig it! Yeah, it's a small mini-van - but it looks pretty good to me. Pricing will start around $17k for the Sport model and $18.9k for the Touring model. It will have the 2.3L - same as the Mazda 3 and '05 Focus ST.

The 2006 MAZDA5 is an unprecedented multifaceted vehicle that combines the dimensions, ease of use and value of a compact, and the sophistication, refinement, and features of a premium import, with the ability to offer seating for six or a wide variety of passenger/cargo combinations.

Think "slightly stretched version of the MZ3 5 door" and you pretty much have it. Don't think I'll be trading in my 3 for one though, it looks a little too "minivanish" for my tastes.

I think it is a great package for under $19k! A loaded Touring model is supposed to have an MSRP of about $18.9k. I have never cared for minivans myself, but I like the looks of this one - and, it has a lot of interior space for the price level too.
