2017 MAZDA5
2017 Mazda5 Overview

Offering an unmatched combination of performance, functionality, design and packaging since its inception, the 2017 Mazda5 works perfectly for families and flawlessly for those with active lifestyles. With its unique combination of flexible seating arrangements, sliding doors, fuel-efficiency, unexpected handling capability, and stylish design, the Mazda5 is created for people who don’t want to fit into the typical mold. 

For 2017, the Mazda5 carries over the features and practicality that have made it so attractive since its complete redesign in 2012. 

The Mazda5 is powered by a 2.5L MZR four-cylinder engine that produces 157 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 163 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM for a satisfying driving experience at any speed. The MZR 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine featured in the 2017 Mazda5 is a light, compact design that offers higher performance yet better fuel efficiency than the previous generation. The Mazda5 features a six-speed manual transmission as standard equipment, with an optional five-speed electronically controlled automatic with manual shift mode available on both GS and GT trim levels. 

The 2017 Mazda5 is available in two trim levels – GS trim which comes well equipped for $21,995 or the luxurious GT model which starts at $26,795. The Mazda5 GS offers many standard convenience and safety features, such as second row captain’s chairs with recline and sliding functions, rear seat ventilation, power windows with driver’s side auto up/down, automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, traction control, and Dynamic Stability Control. 

A Convenience Package ($1,200) is available for the Mazda5 GS that includes: Bluetooth hands-free phone system, Audio Profile, cruise control and steering-wheel mounted cruise controls, trip computer, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an anti-theft alarm system.

 Also available for the Mazda5 GS is a Moonroof Package ($1,400), which can be added on top of the Convenience Package. This package includes power moonroof with tilt and slide functions, rear backup sensors, SiriusXM satellite radio, 6 speakers (vs 4), and side sill extensions (deletes front mud flaps).  

The Mazda5 GT takes everything already offered on the GS model and kicks it up a notch.  Still available with a six-speed manual transmission, the Mazda5 GT is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels with P205/50R17 all-season tires, tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), leather seating upholstery, heated front seats, lumbar support driver’s seat, leather-wrapped shift knob, rear liftgate spoiler, heated door mirrors, fog lights, Xenon headlights, and body-coloured exterior mirrors with side turn signals. 

All 2017 Mazda5s include a long and impressive list of safety features, including: Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) with Traction Control System (TCS), Electro-Hydraulic Power Assist Steering (EHPAS)  system, “Triple H” body construction, side-impact door beams, crushable brake and accelerator pedal assembly, driver and passenger front airbags, dual front side-impact airbags, and dual front and rear side curtain airbags, and integrated child seat anchor brackets. 

The 2017 Mazda5 is also equipped with Mazda’s Brake Override system. This system always prioritizes the brake pedal over the accelerator pedal, should both be engaged simultaneously, allowing the vehicle to be brought to a safe stop every time. Activation of this system is recorded in the electronic Powertrain Control Module (PCM). 

All 2017 Mazda5s come standard with Mazda’s Unlimited Mileage Warranty, which allows the driver to drive as much as they want, as far as they want without worrying about going over the mileage limit. The basic warranty for Mazda vehicles covers all parts found to be factory defective for 3 years, regardless of the number of kilometers driven. Additional warranties cover Powertrain components for a period of 5 years, unlimited mileage; body sheet metal perforation for 7 years, unlimited mileage; and roadside assistance for 3 years, unlimited mileage. 

With the 3-year roadside assistance program, customers can feel secure knowing that wherever they travel throughout North America they can obtain towing, winching, battery boosting, emergency fuel delivery, and tire changing services if needed. They will even get help if locked out of the vehicle. Travel planning services and emergency travel expense reimbursement are included in the roadside assistance program.
