What makes a mini-van different from an SUV?  Sometimes the distinctions become blurred and I think that is the case with the Mazda5.  It is also similar to a small wagon.  It looks really small, but there are three rows of seating in this vehicle.  Biggest difference that is the most noticeable is that the rear doors slide open rather than open outwards.

The Mazda5 has been in the marketplace for about five years and won a lot of loyal followers.  It isn’t a fancy, go-anywhere, do-anything vehicle to meet all of a families needs.  The Mazda5 is unique and the 2012 model has had some refreshments.
