Perhaps the vehicles perfect balance of practicality and performance is why the 2012 Mazda5 minivan ranked 3rd in its class on the U.S. News list of "Best Cars for the Money."
Completely revamped for 2012, the Mazda5 now pulls 157 ponies and 163-lb./ft. of torque from a 2.5-lieter four-cylinder engine. This is highly important considering that loads of kid-toting cargo room usually come at the cost of enjoyable power. In its official review of the 2012 Mazda5, U.S. News writes that the model is, "fun to drive, and not just for a minivan. It has an engaging driving experience, period."1 And if that's not enough, the minivan's reduced size and weight produce a fuel-economy of 21-mpg city/28-mpg highway, which will also allow drivers to hit the gas station a whole lot less. In fact, the 2012 Mazda5 boasts the lowest fuel consumption in its class.
Of course, credit is also due to the automaker itself and the standards engineers employ across all new Mazda models.
