Expert Quotes:

21 mpg city, 28 highway

The 2012 Mazda5 gets pretty good mileage for a vehicle that can carry up to six adults; but it could do even better.

Honda's Odyssey actually ties the Mazda5 on the highway, with 28 mpg, although the Mazda5 ranks a somewhat better 21 mpg in the city, versus 19 for the Odyssey.

But we’ve seen significantly better real-world results. In one 420-mile, varied weekend drive of a manual-gearbox model, over two mountain passes, mostly highway driving plus some city miles, we averaged nearly 30 mpg.




The 2012 Mazda5 is a relatively fuel-efficient pick, considering it can seat six.

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.
