Based on the MX-Flexa concept, which was revealed last March in Geneva, this crossover vehicle is the fifth in a series of global products from Mazda. Other vehicles in the series of this wagon/minivan hybridization include the Mazda 6, Mazda 2, RX-8 and Mazda 3. The Mazda 5 will share its platform with the European Ford Focus C-Max. The U.S. version of the Mazda 5 will seat six people in three rows, with two seats to each row. The second- and third-row seats fold flat, and the second-row bottoms contain underneath storage areas. The European version of the vehicle recently debuted in Paris, minus the sliding doors, which will be found on the American version.
