The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Mazda5 is one of the few good choices for buyers looking for minivan spaciousness in a vehicle that's fuel-efficient, maneuverable, and plenty practical. Take a look at the family-friendly Rondo inside out. Though it's not that attractive from the outside, once you see how Kia uses the space inside, you'll see it in a different light.
