Mazda has released the first images of the new Mazda5, a compact Multi Activity Vehicle which will debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Among the features are the exterior design with elements from the Nagare language, sliding rear doors and a seven-seat interior.
The Geneva Motor Show in March will see the world premiere of the all-new Mazda5, a MAV (Multi Activity Vehicle) designed for the needs of European families with active lifestyles.
“Our main goal with the all-new Mazda5,” says Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 Programme Manager, “was to develop a new C-MAV that combines the superior environmental performance these times demand with a new expression in stylish design.”
The all-new model further evolves Mazda5’s functionality – withdouble-sliding rear doors and 7-seat Karakuri flexibility.
The all-new Mazda5 is fitted with a new 2.0-litre DISI gasoline engine equipped with i-stop, and a six-speed manual transmission with gear ratios specific to this version.
The gasoline line-up features a 1.8-litre engine with a six-speed manual transmission as well.
The all-new Mazda5 will go on sale in Europe this fall.
