The all-new Mazda 5 was developed from the ground up to carry forth this successful tradition with an appealing combination of great exterior styling, superior safety, and interior functionality that exceeds what people expect of a C-MAV. 

Not only does it have an all-new exterior with an almost sedan-like sporty look and an enhanced driving experience; but also two sliding back doors, a very large rear-door opening, leg room in the 2nd and 3rd rows that is one of the segment's largest, bigger and more comfortable seats, instruments that are easier to use, and high levels of seat flexibility and functionality.

To this it adds a quieter cabin, new materials and fabrics, and appealing operating costs with new powertrains that deliver driving fun coupled to double-digit reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions versus the previous Mazda 5. These features - and a long list of equipment - make the all-new Mazda 5 even better at meeting the demands of European families with active lifestyles.

A New Dynamic Flow
The all-new Mazda 5 has a completely new exterior that employs Nagare-flow design, which has won design awards on Mazda concept cars. These elements, coupled to the new Mazda front face, a "hidden" D-pillar and new horizontal rear lamps lend it an appeal that is unique to the C-MAV segment. On the inside, Mazda 5 has a new dashboard, steering wheel and centre stack, along with new seats, materials, colours and seat fabrics for enhanced quality feel.


All-New Exterior
Mazda's all-new people-carrier integrates the brand´s family face that not only makes it stronger-looking and sporty, but also improves aerodynamics and engine-cooling performance. The five-point grille is much larger, the lower bumper much more sculptured, and the new headlamps more pointed. Below these are new pointed fog lamp openings embedded deeply in the bumper.

This creates a thick lower lip that rises along the outer edge of the fascia and into the fender. The fender picks-up the movement created by the fog lamp edge, carries it over the wheel well to meet a wave-like Nagare-flow character line that moves across the side of the vehicle and into the rear panel just below the door-slide rail.


The new Mazda 5 makes all this practicality and comfort even more appealing with a long list of standard and optional equipment. For example, the all-new Mazda 5 can be equipped with an affordable navigation system with features like a large 14.7 cm touch screen monitor, hands-free Bluetooth® audio control with external microphone, integrated CD player + radio, and includes iPod®, iPhone® (via connector cable) and MP3 CD capability. Its 4 GB memory allows 99 percent coverage of Europe 's major markets including Russia using the latest maps in 18 European languages.

The standard equipment package features power-adjustable side mirrors, manual air conditioning, driver seat height adjustment, power windows front and back with one-touch driver window operation, power door locks, safety touch sensor for electric sliding doors, six airbags, four-channel ABS, electric brake-force distribution (EBD), brake assist, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), traction control (TCS) and DSC. 

Also standard are an AUX jack that allows you to play MP3 players using the car's audio system and a new fourspeaker radio system with digital signal processor (DSP) technology that reduces unwanted radio noise, and double tuner (exclusively for Europe) that ensures clear radio reception almost everywhere.

Available are rear parking sensors, seat heating, an in-dash 6 CD changer, a FIX-EQ audio system that automatically optimises sound characteristics according to the interior space, Bluetooth® audio functionality that plays MP3 players cordless, a Bluetooth® telephone system with voice recognition and upgraded steering wheel control, a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS : 17" only) and Xenon headlamps - among many other features.


Updated MZR 1.8 Petrol
An updated version of the popular MZR 1.8 petrol engine remains in the engine line-up of the new Mazda 5.
It adopts an electric control throttle valve for fuel consumption and performance feel. It employs an aluminium-alloy cylinder block, with lightweight pistons and connecting rods for low vibration and a linear driving feel. 

It produces 85 kW/115 PS of maximum power at 5,300 rpm and 165 Nm of maximum torque at 4,000 rpm. It is newly mated to the six-speed manual transmission with a longer gear ratio, which helps the engine lower fuel consumption by 4 percent (7.2 litres per 100 km), CO2 emissions by 6 percent (168 g/km) and comply with Euro V.

Moving the intake-air ducts to the shroud section helps reduce the temperature of intake air and delivers improvement in fuel efficiency. Improving engine cooling by extending the width of the radiator by 25 mm makes the fans run with a lower frequency.

Optimization of intelligent throttle valve control and the knock limit control system help lower fuel consumption.

Passive Safety - Improved Crash Resistance
The all-new Mazda 5 features an evolution of the outstanding safety package that made the current Mazda 5 one of Europe´s safest mini-vans. To achieve this, safety engineers further evolved the Mazda Geometric Motion Absorption (MAGMA) system to create a new body shell with strong Triple-H structures in the floor, sides and roof; then added additional body reinforcements to make it even better at absorbing impact energy in rear-world accidents.

The cabin is now even stronger with new reinforcements in the roof, ultra-high tensile steel introduced to the centre pillars and high tensile steel adopted at the side sills. Its doors are now stronger and less likely to intrude upon impact. 

Their edges overlap with the body to a greater degree when closed, and special door latches are added to the front and rear of the sliding doors to reliably keep them shut during impact. The side doors' two impact beams are newly positioned and their structures changed from the previous single-hat to a double-hat design using ultra-high tensile steel, making them even more resistant to deformation. 

Also new are the locations of Mazda 5's large energy-absorbing pads on the inside of the doors and the door trim, and the structure of the armrest on the door trim - which now has a crushable design - all of which lowers the shock to occupants in the event of a side collision. The 2nd row seatback frames have been strengthened as well and are now better at resisting the forward shift of luggage during the event of a front impact when the 3rd row seats are down or not present (Europe also offers a five-seat version).

The new Mazda 5 is also safer in the event of a rear-end impact, where the new body is better at absorbing energy and protecting the fuel tank. The frame surrounding the fuel tank is made of high tensile steel in two plates each with a different thickness, and the frame members are straighter and have an optimized cross-section.

On the inside, passengers are protected by a passive safety package with six airbags (front, side and curtain), three-point seat belts with pretensioners and load-limiters at the front seats, a crushable brake pedal and horizontal movement type shock absorbing steering column, a seat design and head restraints that help reduce whiplash during in the event of a rear impact, ISOFIX child safety seat anchors and tethers in 2nd row, and soft, impact-absorbing interior surfaces.

Active Safety - New Touch-Sensor for Sliding Doors and Park Assist
Using the new Mazda 5's two electric sliding back doors is now even safer with the first-time installation of a touch-sensor strip that runs the length of the door. 

If enough force is applied to the strip by a person's body or some other object and causes the strip to deform even slightly, the sliding door stops instantly, reverses direction and returns to the open position again. Mazda's new people-carrier is also safer and easier to use in city driving with the introduction of a park-assist system. It uses four sensors in the rear bumper that continuously measure the distance to any object when parking in reverse.

The brake system of the all-new Mazda 5 was developed to contribute superior deceleration and - when combined with suspension, steering and body updates that deliver a more linear steering feel - to contribute to more predictability and control. 

The new Mazda 5 is equipped with large 300 mm ventilated disc brakes in the front (278 mm for 15-inch wheels) and 302 mm rear brakes (280 mm for 15-inch wheels), four-channel ABS, electric brake-force distribution (EBD), brake assist, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), traction control (TCS), DSC and six airbags.

Mazda's Brake Override System
The all-new Mazda 5 will be launched globally with Mazda's Brake Override System. This system always prioritizes the brake pedal over the accelerator pedal should both be engaged simultaneously, allowing the vehicle to be brought to a safe stop.

Improved Pedestrian Safety
The all-new Mazda 5 has evolved its pedestrian protection system even further by optimising the structure of the steel stiffener along the front edge of the hood so it crushes more easily when struck. This is combined with sufficient space between the hood and engine, between the face of the front bumper and the bumper reinforcement - which makes it absorb energy efficiently - along with energy-absorbing material in the hood and front bumper.

The Ideal Family Vehicle
With a wheelbase of 2,750 mm, an overall width of 1,750 and an overall height of 1,615 mm, the all-new Mazda 5 delivers the perfect package for seating up to seven people comfortably, while affording great manoeuvrability. The new model is 80 mm longer than the current model, at 4,585 mm, because of its highly sculptured front end design that insures superior aerodynamic performance and improved pedestrian protection.
