Loads in store from the new Mazda5



THIS is the new Mazda5, unveiled here earlier this week.

Prices start from €24,995 ex-works for the seven-seater with sliding rear doors.

It has a new 1.6-litre diesel (115bhp) that gets it into the €156 a year road tax bracket.

As is now usual you can configure the second and third row of seats to suit your passenger and luggage demands.

You can fold the area flat to open up a space of 1,485 litres.

I haven't counted but Mazda say there are as many as 45 storage compartments throughout the cabin.

There are four models with the top spec version costing €29,995 ex-works.
