2017 Mazda5 Review
When you think of Mazda, you don't always think of minivans, but you really should. The 2017 Mazda5 is perhaps the most innovative and unique minivan on the market, and the experts at Moffatt’s Mazda are proud to offer them to our customers in Central Ontario. Unlike other minivans, the 2017 Mazda5 is sleek, sporty, efficient, and technologically advanced. Available in two trims, the GS and GT, the sales and service teams at Moffatt's Mazda believe you should do what you can to discover more of the benefits of this outstanding multi-activity vehicle.
With three rows of seating, room for up to six passengers, and 4,024-liters of total interior volume, the 2017 Mazda5 is a minivan that drives like a sporty, compact car. Under the hood, you will find a 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve, four cylinders, EFI engine that produces 157 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 163 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 rpm. Despite its size and roomy dimensions the 2017 Mazda5 offers 10.8 L/100 km city and 8.2 L/100 km highway in fuel efficiency depending on if you choice the six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift mode.* The ride is quite smooth and predictable thanks to the front independent strut suspension, rear independent multi-link suspension with coil springs, and rack-and-pinion steering with electro-hydraulic power-assist steering. Depending on the trim level, drivers get a choice of 16-inch or 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires.
Since you will be transporting your friends and family in the 2017 Mazda5, safety is an important feature of this minivan. It all starts with the great selection of airbags that includes dual front, front side, and rear side airbags along with the dual front and read side air curtains. Other major safety features include Dynamic Stability Control, a Traction Control System, side-door impact-protection beams, whiplash-reducing adjustable front-seat head restraints, and driver’s and front passenger’s safety-belt pretensioners and load limiters. You can also add Mazda's unique rear back-up sensors and anti-theft alarm system.
All the safety and performance in the world won't make for a complete minivan experience. Modern drivers also demand luxury, entertainment, and connectivity. The 2017 Mazda5 is packed with the latest technology including standard AM/FM CD player with four speakers, USB/auxiliary auto inputs, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and available Sirius XM satellite radio and Bluetooth hands-free phone capability with audio profile. Perhaps even more impressive are the 2017 Mazda5 comfort and convenience features. The helpful HVAC system includes automatic climate controls, Micron air filter, rear air vents with fan-speed control, rear heater ducts, and an external temperature display. You'll also enjoy the tilt and telescopic steering wheel, power windows with one-touch down feature, remote keyless entry system, and available steering-wheel-mounted cruise control. The sporty cloth upholstered front seats recline and come with thigh support and an adjustable seat lifter. For your passengers, there are second-row captain's chairs, 50/50-split fold-down third-row seatbacks, and dual third-row cup holders.
While these are only a few of the amazing features you'll discover on the 2017 Mazda5, the sales and service experts at Moffatt's Mazda think you'll be extremely impressed by this innovative minivan.
