All-new 2011 Mazda5 revealed

Mazda has released initial information about its third generation 2011 Mazda5, ahead of the official debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Set to go on sale in Europe later this yearl, the redesigned 5 makes use of Mazda’s “Nagare Flow” design language and dual-sliding rear doors with seating for up to seven.

According to Hideki Matsuoka, Mazda5 Program Manager, “Our main goal with the all-new Mazda5, was to develop a new C-MAV (C-segment Multi Activity Vehicle) that combines the superior environmental performance these times demand with a new expression in stylish design.”

Under the bonnet, power comes from a new 2.0-liter DISI1 petrol engine that has been outfitted with an engine start/start system (called i-stop).

While official fuel economy ratings weren’t released there’s an approximate 15 percent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the older 2.0-liter petrol it replaces. The Mazda5 will also be available with a 1.8-litre petrol engine.
