Mazda5 at Cox MazdaThe problem with most minivans currently on the road is the fact that they aren’t actually all that “mini”. They lack agile steering, they’re not that fun to drive, and they’re massive to park. The 2015 Mazda5 is different. It keeps the three rows of seating drivers expect with a minivan, but makes changes in several key areas. Its smaller size makes it easier to park, without sacrificing cargo space. It maneuvers agilely through traffic.

Most importantly to families though, the Mazda5 offers a better driving experience, without sacrificing minivan level safety. Families looking for a fun way to safely get around need to come to Cox Mazda to test drive a 2015 Mazda5 today!

Safety Features

The 2015 Mazda5 comes standard with antilock disc brakes, full length side-curtain airbags, traction control, and front side airbags. There are also available rear parking sensors, which combined with the small size of the Mazda5 help make it one of the easiest minivans to park on the market.

Safety Ratings

The Mazda5 scored well in crash testing from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The highest rating given by the IIHS is “Good.” In crash testing the Mazda5 earned a “Good” rating on both the moderate overlap front crash test and the roof strength crash test. These are some of the most important tests for a vehicle to pass to be considered safe.

The 2015 Mazda5 also received an “acceptable” rating for its performance in seat and head restraint design. This is the safety test that measures whiplash during accidents. Overall, these are high ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Protecting Families

The minivan is an ideal vehicle for growing families. It has three rows that can fit up to 6 people comfortably, and even with all the seats up it has a remarkable trunk space, and with the rear seats down that amount grows up to 44.4 cubic feet of space. Adding to that is fun maneuvering, a high level of visibility, and excellent design, making the Mazda5 a must-drive for family shoppers.
