Car and Driver

The 2009 Mazda Mazda5 offers (depending on trim) many standard features and options galore.

There are three trim levels for the 2009 Mazda 5: Sport, Touring, and Grand Touring (GT). In addition to keyless entry and power windows and doors, the base 2009 Mazda5 Sport is equipped with the five-speed manual transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, rear-seat air conditioning with separate controls, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, cruise control, a trip computer, and a six-speaker sound system with CD and an auxiliary audio jack, reports Edmunds.

A five-speed automatic, fog lights, a rear spoiler, a moonroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and an in-dash six-CD changer are standard on the 2009 Mazda5 Touring trim. The Grand Touring trim of the Mazda5 piles on automatic xenon headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and Bluetooth, according to Edmunds, who adds that "all Mazda5s are pre-wired for [Sirius] satellite radio." All models get 24-hour roadside assistance, a comprehensive three-year/36,000-mile warranty, a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, and a five-year/unlimited-mile corrosion warranty.

Available on all trims are a DVD entertainment system, a HomeLink universal garage/gate opener, and a cargo cover. Options on the 2009 Mazda5 Sport trim include the moonroof and a rear spoiler. Remote start is optional on the Touring and Grand Touring trims, but the DVD-navigation system with touch screen is optional only on the Grand Touring trim, according to various reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. Mother Proof notes, "Leather is only available on the [top-of-the-line] Grand Touring trim." The rear liftgate features two stops to suit different heights. To keep weight and cost down in this Mazda, 2009 Mazda5s do not have a power driver seat. They do, however, feature a ratchet-style lever to adjust seat height. On all trims, "a console emerges from under the second-row passenger seat and contains cupholders for both middle-row passengers and an ingenious net catch-all for odds and ends," describes Kelley Blue Book. Pearlescent paint is also available at extra cost.

Conclusion

While the 2009 Mazda Mazda5 has a good features list, you're out of luck if you want one fully loaded with a manual transmission.

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.
