The 2014 Mazda5 minivan is built to challenge the status quo.

2014 Mazda5 Minivan

Designing a minivan seems relatively simple. Consider the look of every minivan you’ve seen in the last 20 years. Though many models have rounded out a corner here or there, the category is predictable and ripe with parody.

Designing a Mazda, however, is a different story. Mazdas are distinctive, rising above the accusation of imitation. The 2014 Mazda5 minivan is a compelling intersection of these two design tendencies. On one hand drivers hold preconceived expectations for what a minivan should be, while the other hand fully expects Mazda to break the mold and rock the status quo.

Spoiler alert: the Mazda5 minivan is going to break the mold and rock the status quo.


The six-passenger Mazda5 provides spacious comfort for the seats families actually use.

Though the 2014 Mazda5 minivan is not your typical family carrier, drivers will be thankful for the features that distinguish the vehicle from the rest of the vans in its class. When compared to vans like the Dodge Grand Caravan or Honda Odyssey, Mazda5 uses a smaller frame to break the mold of traditional minivan expectations.

While slightly shorter than a van like the Grand Caravan, the 2014 Mazda5 uses its efficient frame to deliver a driving experience previously unseen in the minivan category. Mazda5 truly drives like a family sedan, and it has the fuel economy numbers to back it up. At 21 city and 28 highway mpg, the Mazda5 minivan is more efficient in the city than Honda Odyssey and more efficient overall than Dodge Grand Caravan.

Even as a smaller minivan, the Mazda5 is no stranger to passenger space as well. To be honest, most families no longer require seven seats to safely vacation or scoot around the city. As a six-passenger van, the 2014 Mazda5 foregoes any wasted space to make the seats that you actually use more roomy and comfortable.
