U.S News and World Report names 2014 Mazda5 a “Best Car for the Money”

By Derrick Palmer

U.S. News and World Report has named the 2014 Mazda5 one of its “Best Cars for the Money” for the second year running. To those unfamiliar with the Mazda5, this stylish minivan is the perfect companion for anyone looking for a family vehicle. With the features of a full sized minivan on the footprint of a Mazda3, the 2015 Mazda5 is a great fit for value-minded families that need to seat 6 passengers but want to keep the feel of a smaller car.

Compared to some of its competitors, the Mazda5 gets great gas mileage with 22 mpg city driving and 28 mpg on the highway. The Mazda5 has a quick and responsive steering system and a small turning radius, making it easy and agile to drive in any situation. The Mazda5 also features Dynamic Stability and Traction control allowing the vehicle to respond exactly as you need it to when carrying around your precious cargo.

In spite of its compact size, Mazda5 can fit up to four car seats without sacrificing space for the driver and front seat passenger. For hauling a crowd and still parallel parking in tight city spaces, the Mazda5 has no equal. The dual sliding doors mean not only will the Mazda5 fit into tight parking spaces, but the passengers will also be able to get out of the car once it is parked. While the small size assures this car is more nimble than a larger minivan, Mazda engineering means this compact minivan is also fun to drive.

The Mazda5 is loaded with plenty of available features. In addition to being one of the only minivans to offer a manual transmission, the Mazda5 offers dual sliding doors, captain’s chair seating on the second row, sunroof and many other features found on cars costing thousands more. Families with children will love that the Mazda5 can give them the option of easy-to-clean leather seats for less than the base price of many other minivans. Since all four rear seats have LATCH connectors for car seats, parents can put their car seats where they are most convenient, without sacrificing ease of installation. Technical features like Bluetooth hands-free system or USB connectivity for phones add convenience that is hard to find on a car in this price range.

The best part is that the 2014 Mazda5 has a starting MSRP of $20,140. Buyers who want an agile, affordable vehicle that can comfortably fit the whole family will be delighted to find the Mazda5. With its great price and available features it’s easy to see why U.S. News and World Report named it one of its “Best Cars for the Money” for 2014.
