The new Mazda5 seven-seat MPV is going on sale in Great Britain this month, starting from £17,695 going up to £21,495. This car is one of the most stylish choices in compact multi-activity vehicle segment, and is very well engineered as well. The 5 is also the first to feature Mazda’s distinctive Nagare design language, although it’s still very smiley!

2011 Mazda5 can be had with two engines, a 2.0-litre DISI petrol (150ps) and 1.8-litre petrol (115ps) and a 1.6 -litre turbo diesel (115ps), all with six-speed manual transmissions, delivering up to 54.3mpg and 138g/km CO2 (combined cycle). The petrol unit also gets i-stop technology as standard.

It comes in three trim levels, TS, TS2 and Sport, with standard equipments including six airbags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS), two ISOFIX child seat anchor points, air-conditioning, cruise control, a six-speaker CD audio unit and alloy wheels across the range.

Getting in and out of the Mazda5 is now even easier. Its large, twin sliding rear doors – a ‘first in class’ feature unique for the Mazda5 in its sector – open to a wide 686mm and extend just 160mm beyond the bodywork when open, provide exceptional access in even the tightest spaces. Access is enhanced by a broad 130mm foot step and low 439mm step-up into the cabin. Perfect, in other words, for entering the Mazda5’s rear when carrying a child. Sport models come with power sliding doors as standard.

Its seven seats can be flipped and folded to create a variety of load-carrying configurations. The 112- litre loadbay in seven-seat mode can be enlarged to 426 litres in four-seat configuration, while folding all five rear seats flat creates a vast loadbay of 857 litres (floor to belt-height) or ceiling loadbay of 1,566 litres (floor to roof).

“Exciting new Nagare styling, a range of punchy and clean petrol and diesel engines and seven-seater versatility – the New Mazda5 really is the ideal car for today’s families,” says Mark Cameron, Sales Director for Mazda UK. “Its twin rear sliding doors – a real advantage for access in tight spaces – are complimented by our adaptable cabin layout that offers all the design intelligence you’d expect from a full seven-seat compact people carrier wearing a Mazda badge. And of course, this is a Mazda, so it will be an engaging and athletic drive, no matter who’s on board and what the destination.”
