BASE PRICE RANGE: $19,500-$24,000*
BODY TYPE: Compact Minivan
WHAT'S NEW: Mazda brings latest-gen small minivan to the U.S. for 2012. Seating six, the Mazda5 will remain a smaller alternative to the larger minivans, but with bolder styling. Hard-to-miss character lines improve aerodynamics. Second-row seats can now be converted into storage space. A 5A and the 2.5L from the Mazda3 could be main powertrain combo.
DRIVER'S CHOICE: Considering a Mazda5 means driving a smaller, more easily maneuverable people-mover.
SUM UP: Bold, small, and on the margins.
