Mazda5, the new stylish C-MAV (C-segment Multi-Activity Vehicle) is on sale from 22 July 2005 from Mazda showrooms throughout the UK priced from £14,300 to £17,950 for the petrol versions, with diesel models following later this year, starting from £15,900.

The all-new Mazda5 will offer customers an eight-strong model range with a choice of four powertrains and four equipment levels. All eight will feature a regular six-seat layout - with the flexibility of a stowable seventh seat - which focuses on the interior’s central space to promote good communication between all occupants.

Thanks to Mazda’s innovative karakuri seating system this central space can be easily re-arranged to make room for up to seven. With class-leading twin sliding rear doors, genuine Mazda driving fun and a stylish design, the new Mazda5 introduces fresh Zoom-Zoom attributes to an increasingly popular segment of the UK market.
