The Mazda 5 was presented at the Paris Motor Show in autumn 2004 and was the first car model in the world to introduce the new digital proof of service . The official German premiere was on June 18, 2005.

In the non-European markets, the Mazda5 was partly still sold under the name Premacy . From 2007, the Mazda5 was offered in Taiwan as the Ford I-Max with some changes . In 2005 and 2007 Mazda presented a Premacy as a hybrid vehicle with a hydrogen-powered Wankel engine . These vehicles are called Mazda Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid .

In Germany, three equipment variants were available, the basic Comfort version (only for the two weaker engines), the comfortable Exclusive equipment and the luxurious top version for the two larger engines . The prices started at 20,400 euros (1.8 l MZR Comfort), the upper end of the price list marked 27,600 euros for the Mazda5 2.0 l MZR-CD Top with 143 hp. The equipment variants differed from country to country. The special models "Active" and "Active Plus", which represent variants of the "Exclusive" and "Top" versions, extended the range of equipment upwards.

Engines and gears

Two petrol engines were available for the market launch in June 2005; at the end of the year, the two diesels with standard soot particle filters were added.

Otto engines :

  • 1.8 MZR inline four-cylinder with 1798 cm³ displacement and 85 kW (115 PS)
  • 2.0 MZR inline four-cylinder with 1999 cc displacement and 107 kW (145 PS)

Diesel engines :

  • 2.0 MZR-CD inline four-cylinder common rail with 1998 cm³ displacement and 81 kW (110 PS)
  • 2.0 MZR-CD inline four-cylinder common rail with 1998 cm³ displacement and 105 kW (143 PS)

Gearbox :


Almost three years after its market launch, Mazda presented the revised version of the Mazda5 on December 7, 2007 at the Bologna Motor Show . The front was upgraded with a new radiator grille, modified air intakes and a spoiler lip. In the rear, the bumper was revised and the design of the light alloy wheels was modified. Sales of the revised model began in spring 2008.

A technical innovation was the electrically opening side sliding doors for a surcharge. A new DVD navigation system with touchscreen was also available as an option, which is firmly integrated into the center console and no longer only extends out of the dashboard. In addition, there was an additional AUX connection, an integrated CD changer and a Bluetooth hands-free system with steering wheel controls. Improved noise insulation, a newly tuned chassis with different shock absorbers and a faster-reacting brake booster ensure more comfort and safety.

The engines were also given a fundamental overhaul: the 2.0-liter gasoline engine was now equipped with an electronic throttle valve and sequential valve control so that the throttle response responds more spontaneously, more power is available in the lower speed range and a slight consumption advantage is to be achieved. The six-speed gearbox was also optimized and a new five-speed automatic was offered.


In 2006, the Mazda5's electronic stability program was criticized by the specialist press. The system responded too timidly and did not optimally prevent the rear from swinging out during load changes. As a result, from October of the same year, the ESP called Mazda DSC was improved and it was replaced free of charge in all models produced so far.

Nominally, the Mazda5 with the (partly standard) third row of seats has one more seat than the large Mazda MPV (seven instead of six seats - with the Karakuri-V concept). However, six full seats were built into the MPV. The Mazda5, on the other hand, only has narrow folding seats in the third row , and the fifth seat in the second row can only be used as an emergency seat - it is a narrow seat cushion that can be folded out of one of the rear seats.

Rear view

From October 2010 there was a new Mazda5 that was 8 cm longer. It looks more like other Mazda models, with a large, low-lying grille. From 2011, the model was also offered in Japan as the Nissan Lafesta Highway Star .

For the engines there was a new 1.6-liter diesel with 1560 cm³ displacement and 85 kW (115 hp). The maximum torque is 270 Nm at 1750 to 2500 rpm. In the NEDC it consumes 5.2 liters. Since the old gasoline engines were retained, this leads to the curious situation that the Mazda5 requires less displacement as a diesel for the same output than with a gasoline engine.

As part of a facelift, the Mazda5 was upgraded inside and out in February 2013, including with LED side indicators integrated into the exterior mirrors.

As of September 2015, the model could no longer be ordered or configured in Europe. Worldwide sales were discontinued in 2018.
