Expert Quotes:

2014 Mazda 5: 21/28 mpg (manual); 22/28 mpg (automatic)
EPA





The Mazda5 gets better gas mileage than larger minivans, but in terms of highway mileage it's no standout.

With its new six-speed automatic, the Honda Odyssey can match the Mazda 5's EPA highway rating of 28 mpg; but the Honda can't quite equal the Mazda's city ratings of 21-22 mpg. Meanwhile, the Odyssey can carry eight passengers--two more than the Mazda5.

There are also a number of smaller-car alternatives to the Mazda 5 that get significantly better mileage; and the new Ford C-Max returns 43 mpg on the EPA cycle, from its hybrid powertrain.

But it's worth noting that we’ve seen significantly better real-world results in the Mazda. 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 miles per gallon.

 

 

Conclusion

Highway mileage isn't any better than some larger minivans; but the EPA ratings aren't any stretch.

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.
