Mazda 5 was the second generation of the Mazda Premacy model. Introduced in 2005, it is classed as a mid-sized MPV although, within Europe, it is placed in the market with Compact MPVs, and in the US it is viewed as a mini-minivan. The Mazda 5 is similar to the Mazda 3 in that it is based on Ford's global C1 platform. Secondhand Mazda 5 models come with sliding doors like a minivan and are slightly longer in length compared to the 1984 to 1989 Toyota Van. It is available with the 'Karakuti Seating System' which features seven seats. Additional features added in 2006 included an optional second row DVD entertainment system. In 2008 Mazda 5 cars were updated for Touring and Grand Touring, with adjusted trim levels along the front bumper and changes to the rear LED lights and wheels. Also, luminescent gauges were included in the dashboard and an improved radio control system was added. Later in 2010, they were fitted with traction and electronic stability controls. In 2011, third generation Mazda 5 sales began after its 2010 unveiling at the Geneva Auto Show. The style of the model was marketed as Furai and Nagare design series ideas. Used Mazda 5 can be purchased with either a 1.8 litre four-cylinder or 2.0 litre four-cylinder. Start/stop technology and direct injection have been added to reduce emissions, along with other environment friendly features. Plug-in hybrid Mazda 5 models may also soon be available, and the car manufacturer is currently working on a prototype. In the 2006 Canadian Car of the Year awards the Mazda 5 was awarded Best New Multi-purpose Family Vehicle and its safety features have been noted by both the Japan New Car Assessment Programme and the Euro-NCAP. As well as safety, the cars are renowned for their comfort, spacious interiors and flexible cargo configurations.
