Coming at $78k with COE, the Mazda 5 offers reasonable value. In addition, the 5’s list of standard kit includes the two electric sliding doors, electric sunroof, 16-inch alloy wheels, electric folding mirrors, climate control, factory fitted stereo with MP3 capability and additional controls on the steering wheel, ABS with EBD and not forgetting twin front airbags.

The Mazda 5 is hardly the best performer in the mid-sized MPV class, and its failing is the slightly unrefined engine when worked hard upon. But then again this is an MPV we’re talking about, rather than a luxury executive saloon.

As an MPV, the 5 has all the ticks in the right boxes, especially those labeled “space” and “practicality” thanks to its thoughtful features and design.
