Geneva - world premiere of all-new Mazda5

The all-new Mazda5 has been designed and developed to be especially good at meeting the needs of European families with active lifestyles.

"In approaching development of the all-new Mazda5," says Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 programme manager, "our team aimed to create a new C-MAV that combines superb practicality with the superior environmental performance these modern times demand and a new expression in stylish design."

The all-new model further evolves Mazda5's acclaimed functionality - with rear sliding doors and up to seven-seat Karakuri flexibility in the spacious cabin - and creates an eye-catching exterior that is unique to the segment. This design, which also uses elements of Mazda's ‘Nagare Flow' design language, is also highly functional and contributes to fuel efficiency by achieving a particularly low drag coefficient, together with optimal lift and air-flow stability characteristics.

The all-new Mazda5 is fitted with a newly-developed 2.0-litre DISI petrol engine equipped with i-stop, and a six-speed manual transmission with gear ratios specific to this version. This new direct-injection petrol engine offers linear and smooth performance characteristics which ensure that it is fun to drive in the best Mazda tradition.

The all-new Mazda5 is also one of the most frugal and clean C-MAVs on the market, achieving approximately 15% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2.0-litre petrol model it replaces. The petrol line-up also features a 1.8-litre engine with a six-speed manual transmission.

The all-new Mazda5 will go on sale across Europe later this year.
