Mazda keeps the 5’s hope alive in the MPV segment by giving it a facelift and other needed improvements...

Intro

The mid-sized MPV sector has been hugely competitive ever since Renault designed the Scenic more than a decade ago. Now, there are all sorts of mid-sized MPVs to suit many budgets and needs.

Among the seven-seater models these days, the popular ones are the grey imported Toyota Wish and the Honda Stream. Besides this pair, there are of course others to choose from, like the officially imported Toyota Picnic, Nissan Lafesta and last but not least, the Mazda 5.

The Mazda 5 has just been through a facelift to keep it fit in the fight with the Wish and Stream. How can it make its stand against the two highly popular commoners?
