The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.4
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. The 2008 Kia Sedona is one of the least expensive minivans on the market, but inexpensive is different than cheap.
