Illinois car shoppers find family-focused value with 2014 Mazda 5

Bill Jacobs Mazda showcases performance, practicality of Mazda's minivan

JOLIET, Ill., Dec. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Families looking to find a vehicle that delivers the space, performance, and fuel-economy necessary for their fast-paced lives often feel like they have to make sacrifices to find an affordable vehicle.  Bill Jacobs Mazda is setting out to show Chicago-area families that Mazda's minivan is one of the few vehicles in the industry that families can rely on to meet all their needs.


While the automotive industry is ripe with minivans, the 2014 Mazda 5 is an outlier from most of its counterparts. With a more compact design, the 2014 Mazda 5 comfortably seats six passengers rather than trying to wedge seven or eight in the cabin.

By dropping some of the traditional minivan size, performance soars to the top of the class. Fitted by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates nearly 160 horsepower and equally as many pound-feet of torque, the 2014 Mazda 5 is capable of reaching fuel-economy figures rarely achieved in the minivan segment.

When equipped the automatic transmission, the EPA estimates the 2014 Mazda 5 can achieve as many as 22 miles per gallon in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, making it one of the most fuel-efficient family vehicles available.

The Mazda 5's compact size adds an element of performance and fuel economy drivers don't experience in most minivans and it also delivers many of the attributes necessary for families.  With all the seats removed, cargo capacity expands to nearly 100 cubic feet while folding the third row offers close to 45 cubic feet.

For drivers looking for more maneuverability and fuel economy without sacrificing the things families need most in a vehicle, the 2014 Mazda 5 delivers. Although the Mazda 5 is a popular choice for families, Bill Jacobs Mazda also offers the 2014 Mazda CX-5 crossover and Mazda CX-9 SUV to help growing families find their ideal vehicles this holiday season.
