CAR OF THE YEAR 2012 - THE WINNERS

MPV Of The Year 2012, Mazda 5 2.0 (A)

MPV
Yes, Mazda wins again this year, this time in the people-carrier segment. A vastly improved version over its predecessor and with good looks to boot. Itís equally practical as well, particularly useful if you have three young children and the maid to ferry around on most days. The 2.0-litre engine, mated to a smooth shifting 5-speed automatic does the job well, delivering enough punch to get you from point A to point B. Whatís its trump card? Itís a competent handler when you do get the urge to have some fun while driving. Being Japanese, reliability is the 5ís other plus point.
