Mazda5 Pricing Details
As first reported on TorqueNews on Nov. 17, for two model years, Mazda denied U.S. buyers of its Mazda5 a standard transmission, but for the 2012 model year it once again comes in a manual transmission. Forget all the hoopla about it having elements of the Nagare design in its DNA. A mini-minivan with a six-speed manual transmission is going to be a hoot to drive.
The 2012 Mazda5 will be offered in three trim grades: Sport, the mid-level Touring and the top-of-the-line Grand Touring. All 2012 Mazda5s feature a host of standard safety features, including Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), traction control, anti-lock brakes (ABS), tire-pressure monitoring, and dual front, front-seat and side curtain airbags that offer protection to all three rows.
The well-equipped Mazda5 Sport includes 16-inch alloy wheels with 205/55/R16 all-season tires, power mirrors, air conditioning, power windows and door locks, AM/FM/CD/MP3 stereo with six speakers, audio auxiliary jack, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, remote keyless entry system, one-touch up/down driver's window, 50/50 split fold-down third row seats and steering wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls.
The Mazda5 Touring (from $21,990) is equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission, 17-inch alloy wheels with P205/50R17 all-season tires, sport side still extensions, rear liftgate spoiler, fog lamps, Bluetooth® hands-free phone and audio, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and trip computer. Available on Touring models is a Moonroof and Audio Package ($1,140) which includes a power moonroof, in-dash 6-disc CD changer and Sirius satellite radio.
The top-of-the line Grand Touring model (from $24,670) adds a power moonroof, xenon high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, automatic on/off headlights, heated door mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, anti-theft alarm system, driver's seat lumbar support adjustment, heated front seats, in-dash 6-disc CD changer, leather-trimmed seats and Sirius satellite radio.
The 2012 Mazda5 is powered by a 2.5-liter MZR I-4 engine and can be paired with either a six-speed manual (Sport models only) or five-speed automatic transmission (standard on Touring and Grand Touring). The MZR 2.5-liter produces 157 hp at 6,000 rpm, and 163 ft-lb of torque at 4,000 rpm.
