There's no longer a factory-installed navigation system

The 2014 Mazda 5 offers loads of value and space--more than any other minivan or crossover, really.

At the base Mazda 5 Sport level, you get power locks, windows, and mirrors; automatic climate control; an AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack; a USB port; a tilt/telescopic steering wheel; cruise control; keyless entry; and steering-wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls.

On the Mazda5 Touring, the automatic transmission becomes standard, as do 17-inch wheels; leather trim on the steering wheel and shift lever; and a trip computer. Rear parking sensors also are standard. Bluetooth with audio streaming is also standard.

In top-of-the-line Grand Touring form, the Mazda5 also comes with a power moonroof, heated mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, xenon HID headlamps, heated front seats, and Sirius satellite radio (a stand-alone option, too), all for around $25,000.

The audio system is only capable of displaying a few characters at a time; satellite radio is available with it, but that hampers tuning and display.

When it comes to advanced tech features, the Mazda5 is sorely lacking. Most glaring: there's no navigation option (a Garmin system is offered on a dealer-installed basis, however).

Conclusion

The Mazda 5 is a disappointment for those looking for tech and connectivity features; but it's a strong value.

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.
