New Mazda5 slides in

2010-01-21 13:10
Mazda has announced that it will reveal its all-new Mazda5 MPV at the Geneva Motor Show.

The look is familiar, and while in keeping with the current crop of Mazdas incorporating certain Nagare principles, the Five is - according to Mazda - the first production vehicle to fully embrace this new design language.  

As before, the new Mazda5 will be equipped with rear sliding doors and a modular seating arrangement that can be adjusted to suit various people- or load-carrying needs.

The new MPV will also be easier on the environment, with Mazda claiming it will produce 15% less CO2 emissions than the current model by using a host of fuel-saving tricks including the "i-stop" stop-and-go system.

Mated to a 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine, the manual six-speed gearbox has also been optimised for greater efficiency.

All-new Mazda5 will debut on March 2 at the Geneva Motor Show.
