Mazda Mazda5

Starting MSRP: about $18,500

The Mazda5 is a small minivan that looks more like a crossover vehicle sitting low to the ground. The six-seater features a low floor and giant rear-sliding doors that make entry and exit easy. A 153-horsepower, 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine is paired with either a manual or automatic transmission with five speeds.

Its low-ride height and front-multilink rear suspension mean it handles well while avoiding the top-heavy feeling of some minivans. Standard features include automatic air conditioning, cruise control, a slide-recline-fold flat second row, CD player, antilock brakes, side-impact and side-curtain air bags. A side-curtain air bag inflates the full area of the window to protect your head from hitting the window or frame pillar in a side-impact collision.
