When we go on vacation we are always looking for a vehicle that will hold the whole family and our luggage comfortably. That’s why I was excited for the chance to test drive for a week, the Mazda5 Grand Touring Minivan on our recent Orlando trip.
We were very grateful for the rear climate controls which helped cool off the passengers in the back. The hot Orlando sun was shining brightly on this trip and having that extra boost of air conditioning pumped to the 2nd & 3rd rows made traveling much easier.
When the 3rd row is up trunk space is a bit limited but manageable.
We felt the interior was spacious and perfect for 6 passengers. We never felt on top of one another. The front row and second rows seats were adjustable and could slide forward and back giving more room to those who need it.
In the front of the vehicle, the navigational controls on the steering wheel made us feel safer while driving. Being able to tune the radio, adjust the air conditioning, set cruise control and more without taking our hands off the wheel was a fantastic feature that we enjoyed and used often.
We’ve been pleased with the Mazda5 Minivan and it’s been a wonderful vacation vehicle. It’s gotten us where we want to go in comfort and style with many features, like the folding 3rd row and dual sliding rear doors, that has made managing the trip even easier. We recommend it to those making the switch to a minivan and to those looking for a versatile 4-6 passenger vehicle.
