Mazda 5 (2010–2015)

Model History

World Premiere of all-new Mazda5

This all-new model evolves Mazda5 functionality with rear side sliding doors and up to seven-seat Karakuri flexibility in the spacious cabin, yet offers an eye-catching exterior that is unique to the segment. This design, which also uses elements of Mazda's ‘Nagare Flow' design language, contributes to fuel efficiency by achieving a particularly low drag coefficient, together with optimal lift and air-flow stability characteristics.

The new Mazda5 is fitted with a newly-developed 2.0-litre DISI petrol engine equipped with i-stop, and a six-speed manual transmission with gear ratios specific to this version. This new direct-injection petrol engine offers smooth, linear performance characteristics which ensure that it is fun to drive.

The new Mazda5 is also one of the most frugal and clean MPVs on the market, achieving approximately 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2.0-litre petrol model it replaces. The petrol line-up also features a 1.8-litre engine with a six-speed manual transmission.

19-10-2010: New Mazda5 on sale in the UK From October 2010, priced from £17,695 OTR. Choice of three powertrains – 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.

With its seven-seater versatility, intelligent packaging and engaging style, the New Mazda5 compact multi-activity vehicle has been engineered from the ground up to meet the demands of even the most active families.

The New Mazda5 arrives in the UK from October 2010, priced from £17,695 to £21,495 OTR, and will be available in Mazda’s familiar and generously appointed TS, TS2 and Sport trim levels. Standard equipment levels are, as you’d expect, exceptionally generous and include 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.

The New Mazda5 also sees the debut of Mazda’s distinctive Nagare design language. Inspired by the flowing elements found in nature, the Mazda5 is instantly distinguished by its boldly sculpted flanks. These distinctive contours are complemented by the company’s striking face (five point grille), piercing headlamps, and a steeply raked windscreen angle resulting in a sleek and svelte silhouette that’s a world away from its more pedestrian-looking people-carrier rivals.

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.

The Mazda5 is the last word in packaging flexibility and generous space for on-the-go families. Key to this versatility is its innovative seven-seat layout, which offers excellent packaging flexibility and generous space for all on board. The three rows of seats create a wide range of passenger-luggage combinations – from seven seats for friends and family on shorter journeys, to four seats with a generous luggage compartment for longer journeys to just two seats and a vast, flat-floored cargo area for hauling larger items.

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). Perfect then, for flat-pack furniture fans.

The Mazda5 range debuts with the choice of three engines. The two petrol-powered MZR units – a 115ps 1.8-litre and a 150ps 2.0-litre DISI – are joined by a 115ps 1.6-litre MZ-CD turbo diesel unit. The three powertrains are all Euro Stage 5 compliant and drive the front axle through slick six-speed manual transmissions.

The flagship MZR 2.0-litre engine features DISI Direct Injection Spark Ignition and emissions-busting stop/start i-stop technologies. The system helps deliver some exceptional figures. Combined economy climbs 14.2 percent to 40.9mpg andemissions drop a full 15 percent to 159g/km over the outgoing 2.0-litre petrol engine. Performance is equally strong with a 0-62mph time of 11 seconds and a 120mph top speed.

The MZR 1.8-litre powertrain has undergone a raft of upgrades – including the introduction of new lightweight pistons and connecting rods as well as an electric control throttle valve. These upgrades result in a four percent economy boost to 39.2mpg and a six percentemissions drop to 168g/km over the outgoing 1.8-litre model. The MZR touches 62mph in 12.8 seconds and posts a 113mph maximum speed.

Featuring third-generation common-rail fuel injection, a turbocharger with and a DPF diesel particulate filter, MZ-CD 1.6-litre packs a technical punch, accelerating to 62mph in 13.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 111mph, while returning an excellent fuel economy figure of 54.3mpg (combined cycle) and posts tax-friendly emissions of just 138g/km.
