Mazda 5 (previously referred to as Mazda Premacy and retained this name within the Asian market) may be a compact van created by the japanese car maker Mazda in 1999. the primary generation Premacy was born in Japan and exported to Europe and Asia. After the base-engineering, the car was sold by Ford in some Asian markets (including Japan) just like the Ford Ixion or Ford MAV. The second generation is sold worldwide as Mazda 5. By March 31, 2005, 285,258 Premacy and Mazda 5 cars were sold worldwide.
The first generation Premacy was equipped with 2 rows of seats for 4 or 5 passengers, while within the second generation a 3rd row of seats appeared, which increased its capacity to six passengers within the American version and up to 7 passengers in variants for other countries. Both generations were real minivans with an almost flat floor, folding / removable 2nd side and rear row of seats, hiding under the ground .
1999 Premacy used the Mazda CP Platform. it had been produced with both front and all-wheel drive, and was equipped with an automatic drive . Since Premacy had 5 and seven seats, it had been not less modular, unlike its competitors, like the Opel Zafira and therefore the Honda Stream. The seats of the 2nd and 3rd row might be folded or removed, as on most other minivans.
This generation Premacy was also sold in some Asian markets just like the Ford Ixion.
The new model of 2006 went on sale within the summer of 2005. Currently, this model is sold under the name Mazda 5 altogether markets (with the exception of Australia) and is positioned as an improved version of the Premacy car. Classified by Mazda and therefore the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a mid-size multi-seat coach (wagon), it’s generally perceived as a mini-minivan within the us thanks to its size and sliding doors.
