Mazda 5 to zoom in to local shores.

Mazda has announced at the Auto Africa Motor Show that its versatile Mazda5 MPV is destined for South African introduction.

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.
