All-New 2011 Mazda5 Revealed - Reviews and Specs Public Debut in Geneva



'Nagare' works on sportier cars, but here it's a little too... much. If you've seen a new Mazda3 in person, make that big gawping face about 20-30% bigger to get the new Mazda5. And at the back it looks like a Ssangyong Rodius. The wispy lines down the sides are a nice unique touch though. Mazda has released first information about the third generation 2011 Mazda5, ahead of it's unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show.
Set to go on sale in Europe this fall, the redesigned Mazda5 features Mazda's "Nagare Flow" design language, dual-sliding rear doors, and seating for up to seven. According to Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 Program Manager, "Our main goal with the all-new Mazda5, was to develop a new C-MAV (C-segment Multi Activity Vehicle) that combines the superior environmental performance these times demand with a new expression in stylish design."
Under the hood, power comes from a new 2.0-liter DISI1 petrol engine that has been outfitted with an engine start/start system (called i-stop). While official fuel economy ratings weren't released, Mazda says the engine will make the Mazda5 "one of the most frugal and clean C-MAVs on the market, achieving approximately 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2.0-liter petrol it replaces." If that doesn't float your boat, the company will also offer a 1.8-liter petrol engine. It will likely produce 115 hp (85 kW) and 165 Nm of torque.The whole style of the Mazda 5 is identifiable and the sidelines as a result of the designtheme are beautyful and fit the car alot. Interesting trend: Peugeot will minimize their grill design, Mazda will push them up. Nice, but a little bit to plump for a sportive mpv. The sliding doors are great!
