Mazda5 to Premiere at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show image

The new Mazda5 emits approximately 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. European sales of the all-new Mazda5 will commence during fall 2010.

Commenting on the development concept, Hideki Matsuoka, the Mazda5 program manager, said, “The all-new Mazda5 meets the many needs of today’s customers. In a single model, we offer the competitive eco-performance necessary to address current market trends together with our distinctive, emotional design. The Mazda5 features outstanding functionality with sliding rear doors and multiple seat arrangements, and it delivers fantastic comfort with a linear and smooth ride that responds precisely as the driver intends.”

Officially titled the 80e Salon International de l’Auto, the Geneva International Motor Show press days are March 2 and 3, and the public days are March 4 through 14. Mazda will hold its press conference on Tuesday, March 2.

    My next vehicle will be the Mazda 5 but only if we can get the Sky D diesel engine for the Canadian maket. I have given up waiting for Toyota or Honda to bring their diesel offerings to Canada. The Mazda 5 looks very promising. As well, Mazda appears to be ready to make a serious challenge to Toyota and Honda. Zoom Zoom!
