Mazda5 preview

Mazda has released the first images of the new Mazda5, a compact Multi Activity Vehicle which will debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Among the features are the exterior design with elements from the Nagare language, sliding rear doors and a seven-seat interior.

Mazda5The Geneva Motor Show in March will see the world premiere of the all-new Mazda5, a MAV (Multi Activity Vehicle) designed for the needs of European families with active lifestyles.

“Our main goal with the all-new Mazda5,” says Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 Programme Manager, “was to develop a new C-MAV that combines the superior environmental performance these times demand with a new expression in stylish design.”

The all-new model further evolves Mazda5’s functionality – with double-sliding rear doors and 7-seat Karakuri flexibility.

This design, which also uses elements of Mazda’s Nagare Flow design language, is highly functional and contributes to fuel efficiency by having a particularly low drag coefficient, and optimal lift and air-swirl characteristics.

This new direct-injection gasoline unit offers linear and smooth performance characteristics and is fun to drive.

It achieves approximately 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the 2.0-litre unit it replaces.

The gasoline line-up features a 1.8-litre engine with a six-speed manual transmission as well.

The all-new Mazda5 will go on sale in Europe this fall.
