Mazda will reveal its all-new Mazda5 mid-sized MPV at next month’s Paris Motor Show.

Fulfilling the promise of the Mazda MX-Flexa concept – revealed at the Geneva Motor Show and shown to the UK for the first time at Birmingham Motor Show this year – the new Mazda5 will deliver flexible interior design coupled with car-like driving enjoyment into the mid-sized MPV (C-MAV) segment.

The Mazda5 will be available in the UK with seating for seven passengers or as a six-seater with additional storage capacity, using a “6 + One” packaging concept. The MPV also features sliding rear doors on both sides.

It will be available in the UK with a choice of two petrol engines or a common-rail turbo diesel engine, with prices to be announced nearer its on-sale date.
