Once your best friend hits a certain age, getting in and out of your vehicle can be tough. To make it a little easier on their bones and joints, consider the 2013 Mazda5.

Whether you have small dog or a large one, you'll appreciate the 2.5-liter four-cylinder Mazda5's sliding rear doors and 27-inch opening. The doors latch in the open position, so your dog won't have to worry about it closing while he or she is getting in. The rear liftgate and low cargo floor makes loading your dog in and out quick and easy. With the 50/50-split, fold-down third row, you'll have 44.4 cubic feet of cargo space.

You won't have to worry about your dog getting overheated if he or she is sent to the back of this minivan thanks to the automatic climate control with independent second-row fan speed controls. Not only will your pooch be comfortable in this ride, so will your wallet. The Mazda5 claims to offer some of the best fuel economy in its class. Calling it a minivan doesn't mean it has to drive like one
