The 2011 Mazda5 gets Mazda's dynamic and elegant Nagare design treatment with a front end that looks similar to the Mazda3. In Europe the Mazda5 will emit 15 percent less CO2 than the current model thanks to Mazda's "i-stop" idling stop system, a direct injection gasoline engine and other technologies. Mazda also claims that it now has a sportier and smoother ride than the current generation. The Mazda5 can be powered by either a 1.8L gasoline engine or a 2.0L direct-injection gasoline engine.
The 2011 Mazda5 will go on sale this fall in Europe, it hasn't been announced when the US will receive it.
