Buying Tips:


The 2010 Mazda Mazda5 makes more sense if you keep it simple, where it’s priced low; with a lot of options, it costs almost as much as full-size minivans. Also, as much as you might want a manual-transmission Mazda5, they’re hard to find and the options are more limited.

Other Choices:

If you like the 2010 Mazda Mazda5, also consider:

  • Kia Rondo
  • Scion xB
  • Toyota RAV4
  • Hyundai Elantra Touring
  • Kia Sedona SWB

Reason Why:

The 2010 Mazda Mazda5 is quite a deal for a sporty, economical people-mover, provided you watch the options. The base 5 starts at around $18,000, yet fully loaded top-line Grand Touring models can come surprisingly close to the $30,000 mark—and that's a whole different landscape of vehicles. The Kia Rondo can be odd-looking to some, but it’s the closest match to the Mazda5, with an equally space-efficient interior and fuel-efficient base four-cylinder engine. The Rondo, however, has hinged rear doors, which makes it slightly less convenient in some cases. The Sedona minivan should also be considered; it’s one of the few remaining minivans sold in a maneuverable short-wheelbase version. The RAV4 is another fuel-efficient rival, and it’s one of the rare compact SUVs that offer a third-row seat good for kid duty. The perky Scion xB might suit those who don't really need a third row of seating, as its stylish, boxy body affords a roomy interior, while the Hyundai Elantra Touring is a new wagon that’s more an economical, sporty small car than a minivan.

The Bottom Line:

For families looking for fuel-efficient, maneuverable, and roomy transportation—with a fun-to-drive feel—the 2010 Mazda5 is your best and only choice.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
