This next-generation minivan delivers nimble handling, an accessible asking price, and plenty of room for both passengers and cargo despite its deceptively small size. To illustrate just what a smart choice the latest 2015 Mazda5 is, we have pitted it head-to-head against the 2015 Toyota Sienna. Find out how both vehicles fare, and bring your family along for the short drive from Tampa to check it out in person at Cox Mazda in Bradenton.



The 2015 Mazda5 offers three rows of seating and up to 44.4 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row. That is plenty of room for most families, but the 2015 Mazda5 is noticeably smaller than the competitors, including the Sienna, which surprisingly turns out to be an asset on the road.

  • 2015 Mazda5: The minivan’s smaller footprint makes it easier to handle in the city and when maneuvering that tight parking space. It also cuts down on the vehicle’s weight, which positively affects gas mileage.
  • 2015 Toyota Sienna: The boat-like character of the Sienna makes changing lanes difficult, tight parking spots off-limits, fitting into a garage a challenge, and saving on gas nearly impossible.
