Minivan Utility Meets Mazda Handling in the Mazda5

At first glance, the Mazda5 seems like an oddball. It's shaped like a minivan, but it's much smaller. It has three rows of seats, but seats only 6 passengers. Behind the third row is very modest cargo space. So what sets this smaller minivan apart?

Flexibility. This itty-bitty van is more fuel efficient and less expensive than your traditional minivan thanks to its diminutive stature. This makes it a sensible choice for a family on a budget.

This spunky little van isn't all about being pragmatic-- It handles with the zoom you expect from any Mazda, a far cry from sluggish larger vans. It's lightweight, easy to park, and crisp handling and braking make it genuinely fun to drive.

For a small family on the go, the Mazda5 is a perfect fit. There's room for the kids and a few friends, or you can fold the third row seats down for added cargo space.

This is also the only minivan you can get with a manual transmission. Autobytel gives us a glowing review in this video:
