The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.6
6.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2015 Mazda 5 has good road manners and clean styling, but its flexibility is undercut by poor safety ratings. The 2014 Toyota Prius V combines a spacious interior with excellent real-world gas mileage but it can feel underpowered when heavily loaded.
