Mazda5 Grand Touring Wrap UP!

I had the ultimate pleasure of driving a Mazda5 Grand Touring to Yosemite.  The Mazda5 is a true  delight to drive!! The car drives smoothly! The handling is amazing. It drives like a small car with all the features of a large family car. The greatest feature for me? 25.5 miles per gallon MOUNTAIN driving!! That's OUTSTANDING!!

I love the amount of room in this car!! 3 rows of seating!! We took the Mazda5 on our day trips, 4 adults and a toddler in a carseat and still room in the back for picnic lunch, stroller and day packs! 

More to love:
Sunroof. Double Sliding Doors (the greatest invention ever!!)

EASY to get to carseat anchors. (Mom's will really love this feature! No crawling over seats!!)

Storage under the seats in the middle row. Storage between the middle seats. Cup holders for all.

2 charging ports.
MP3/iPad hook up.
Heated seats and side mirrors.
Air vent for the backseats.
5 speed automatic.
3 Homelink buttons and a compass in the rear view mirror!

Price? $24,470  

Disclosure I received a complimentary week driving the Mazda5 for the purpose of my review. (They aren't letting me keep this one either I checked AGAIN!!) No other compensation was provided. The opinions are mine and 100% honest. I have not been influenced in any way. 


  1. Now that is one sweet ride. I could fit one family of granddaughters in there. That would be so awesome when we pick them up after school. Love all the room and compartments that are in there. Gas milage isn't bad either. Now to come up with the 25,000.

    1. I still am in AWE Diane all 6 Grandkids.... sleep overs.... you are amazing.
      I could put all the grandkids carseats in the Mazda5 and no one would be touching the other!! Ahhhhhh one fight averted.

  2. Heated seats! That would be my favorite. 25 mpg in mountains is goo.

    1. Heated seats!! I will never ever have a car without them!! LOL!! LOVE them!

  3. What a pretty car! If you got all of that in there and didn't feel crowded, it must really be laid out well. I have never driven a Mazda, but I will test one should the need arise!

    1. I really love that we weren't crowded in the car. I still am amazed that there are 3 rows of seating, you just couldn't tell from the outside.

  4. Very nice car there. I like that it has heated seat , thats great for winter time for sure.
    I also like the double sliding doors that really nice to have too. thanks for the pictures and the info on the Mazda5

    1. Those double doors are the greatest invention ever!!

  5. I miss this car. This review is great Mom, keep up the good work.
