The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mazda 5 offers the flexibility, space, and versatility of a minivan, but with the personality of a sporty small car, it's a lot more enjoyable for the commute. The Nissan Quest may drive well, but its below-average seating and safety put it behind the rest of the minivan options on the road today.
