1995 Mazda MPV Review

A fun and comfortable family vehicle.

Reviewed by Automotive on

Overview

As an attractive family vehicle, the 1995 Mazda MPV offers three models and comes in either two-wheel- or four-wheel-drive versions. Offering plenty of interior space and comfortable seven-passenger seating, it handles like a car, making for a fun drive. It replaces the V-4 with a V-6 that improves performance but reduces fuel efficiency. The gas mileage is even a bit lower than other minivans in its class. Offering a range of models equipped with excellent features, it offers something for anyone in the market for a reliable family-friendly vehicle.

The Range

Body Styles: minivan
Engines: 3.0-liter six-cylinder
Transmissions: four-speed automatic
Models: Mazda MPV L, Mazda MPV LX, Mazda MPV LXE

What's New

The 1995 Mazda MPV introduces three models: the L, LX, and LXE. The standard four-cylinder engine has been replaced by a new six-cylinder engine, and all models come equipped with seven-passenger seating.

Exterior

As a three-door minivan, the 1995 Mazda MPV features a sporty tapered design. The swing-out design of the side door can be cumbersome in tight spaces compared to the usual sliding door one might find on a minivan. Standard exterior features include 15-inch wheels and rear window wiper. The upgraded LXE model comes with a two-tone exterior paint job. Additional options available include alloy wheels, privacy glass, power moonroof, keyless entry system, front and rear air-conditioning, and rear heater.

Interior

The 1995 Mazda MPV comes equipped with standard seven-passenger seating including bucket seats for a more comfortable ride. The L and LX models come with standard cloth seating, and the LXE is equipped with leather seating. The base model also features tachometer, power steering, and AM/FM audio system. The LX and LXE include power windows, power door locks, AM/FM/cassette audio system, cruise control, and rear window defroster. The LXE features additional upgrades including leather seating and leather steering wheel trim.

Performance & Handling

The 1995 Mazda MPV handles very lightly, almost as though the buyer is driving a car. It comes in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. A fun and easy minivan to drive, it now comes equipped with a more powerful 3.0-liter V-6, replacing the standard V-4 of the past. The engine produces 155 horsepower and 169 lb-ft of torque. Acceleration uphill can put a strain on the engine as it is still a bit underpowered for a vehicle of this size. The luxury LXE model offers better handling with a standard self-leveling suspension.

Safety

Safety features included as standard on the1995 Mazda MPV include driver front airbag and rear-wheel anti-lock brake systems (ABS). The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the MPV three stars out of five after passenger-side crash tests and four stars for driver-side impact.
