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. The 2008 Toyota RAV4 brings a little more space than most compact SUVs without a mid-size price.
