Mazda 5 to zoom in to local shores.
When it arrives here in the second quarter of 2007, the Mazda5 will have a price tag of below R200 000. It will rival popular MPVs such as the Toyota Corolla Verso and Renault Scenic.
It is based on the Mazda MX-Flexa concept car which was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in 2004.
Designed from the inside out, Mazda5 provides space wagon comfort and a unique "6 + One" packaging concept that provides flexible space in the vehicle's center.
In line with Mazda's Zoom-Zoom promise, the Mazda5 delivers a fresh exterior design with two, wide-opening sliding doors and driving dynamics that customers have come to appreciate from all Mazda new-generation vehicles.
