The Japanese automaker Mazda will unveil at the next generation Mazda5 at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Like all previous models, the new Mazda5 speaks the same Nagare design language and is powered by a fuel efficient direct injection gasoline engine and other technologies with sales slated to begin this fall. The new model will be offered with a choice of two engines: a 1.8 Liter gasoline engine mated to a six speed manual transmission and a 2.0 Liter engine with direct injection and i-stop.

Press release after the jump.

Press release

Mazda Motor Corporation will hold the global premiere of the all-new Mazda5 (known as the Mazda Premacy in Japan) during the press days of the 2010 Geneva Motor Show on March 2 and 3, 2010. Embracing dynamic and elegant Nagare design, 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.

The new Mazda5 features an emotional design that blends elegance with a dynamic spirit. It will be the first Mazda production model to fully adopt Mazda’s Nagare (meaning “flow” in Japanese) design language, which finds inspiration in the beauty of flows found in nature. Nagare design has appeared in certain elements of recent production models and was previously showcased through a series of concept cars. The new Mazda5’s design achieves excellent aerodynamic characteristics with an outstanding drag coefficient and lift balance. In order to meet wide-ranging customer requirements, it also offers a high level of functionality, with dual sliding rear doors and multiple seat arrangements. This includes a karakuri second-row center seat that can be converted to a versatile storage space. With a sportier and smoother ride, the new Mazda5 responds precisely to the driver’s commands, enabling the whole family to travel in comfort and security.

Based on its long-term vision for technology development, Sustainable Zoom-Zoom, Mazda is striving to improve the eco-friendly performance of its products. Whether stuck in traffic or cruising on the highway, the all-new Mazda5 with 2.0L direct injection gasoline engine and i-stop significantly reduces CO2 emissions thanks to the effective combination of i-stop, the high combustion efficiency provided by direct injection, and a six-speed manual transmission with optimized gear ratios. The new Mazda5 cuts CO2 emissions by roughly 15 percent compared to the model it replaces and provides a more comfortable ride with linear and smooth performance characteristics. It is now one of the most eco-friendly minivans in its class in Europe.

The new Mazda5’s green credentials are further enhanced by its other available powertrains, which include a 1.8L gasoline engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

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.

Mazda 5 comes with a new design this 2011. Mazda 5 is more powerful compared to the first-generation of Mazda 5. It offers more comfortable yet stylish interior.

One of the best indeed on its exterior appearance. The features are really outstanding, but the engine performance is not impressive at all. Mazda car is only really had the awesome designs.

The automaker of Mazda is really a great for creating such an impressive vehicle like this. However, I noticed that its interior is not so interesting unlike with the other Mazda cars. Anyway, what’s the engine specification of it?

Well, just like what I’ve expected on Mazda! This minivan of them, is absolutely looking great and awesome on its platform and design, and I noticed that the car lines of it only emphasized its beauty.

Wew! The Japanese automaker of Mazda are really genius for creating such a wonderful and elegant car. I love the luxury interior design of this Mazda even with the exterior design. I wonder if what is the price of this one.

So elegant and impressive styling even the car lines emphasized or I must say adds more beauty on this Mazda5 but I don’t think either that the engine of it is powerful.

Mazda5 is really one of the best cars that I have seen. The features are really outstanding but the engine performance is not impressive at all. Mazda cars only have the awesome designs.

I super love the front lights of every car in Mazda, I found it so unique and really suits to their car. Mazda5 is an example of those, it really had an angst for me even the over all design of it.

It is considered as Minivan even though it is a bigger one. The elegance it shows is really stunning. For the revealing of this one in the Geneva Motor Show, I’m sure that it will grab the attention of the people.

Much to our relief, the sequel to the original 3 maintains what we liked and even manages to improve on the original.

Exterior is A, but the dash-board seems very cheap. (One would expect automaker to showcase the top-trim. I just hope this is not the case.)

We own a Mazda5 and love it. However, I would never NEVER even keep this redesign a second look. Mazda ruined the 5, this is so ugly.

  (377) posted on 05.5.2010

Its a 2.0 engine with decent and upgraded interior designs.

Sweet, and lovely looking MPV, way better than the toyota Innova... and good thing that it came out with manual transmission edition.

Are they trying to divert attention from the front fascia? Nobody seems to like the smiley face, so Mazda’s solution is to make the body panels look even more ridiculous. Huh?

  (543) posted on 02.15.2010

mazda should think again if they will release this model of Mazda3. This model is not that ugly or something, but they make this popular Hatchback car into a family van which is quite off for me.

@Pepe_Smith: Mazda cars are not for girls or soft men only. I believe most of the HB cars from mazda is for everyone and are hit for both sexes.

I think this new Mazda5 can accommodate more than 5 people inside and has been redesigned to accommodate more people inside. Plus, more features and new engine power.

What I’m thinking about Mazda Cars is that they look . They are especially made for girls and soft men. I just don’t like them.
