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.
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.
