2013 Mazda MAZDA5 Review

Reviewed by Automotive on

Vehicle Overview

Mini-vans are going by the wayside as we progress deeper into the 21st century, but nevertheless, the 2013 Mazda Mazda5 trudges on. As usual, the 2013 Mazda Mazda5 is offered in a base Sport model, as well as a Touring and Grand Touring model. A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, rated at 157 horsepower, is mated to a six-speed manual transmission when you go with the base Sport model, but a five-speed automatic is standard on the other two models. However, you still get the manual on both the Touring and Grand Touring models, but it's now an optional feature. You read that right, a mini-van that is sold in North America is available with a manual transmission still. Take that as you will.

Not much has changed on the Mazda5 for the 2013 model year. The only real, notable change we do see for 2013 is the addition of a USB input and the subtraction of a six-disc CD changer. The 2013 Mazda Mazda5 still offers seating for six, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, good for 157 horsepower, and a six-speed manual transmission. The EPA estimates that the 2013 Mazda Mazda5, when equipped with a manual transmission, to achieve 21 mpg in the city, and 28 mpg on the highway. If you do opt for the automatic transmission, that's good for an upswing of 1 mpg in both categories.
