While Mazda had already updated most of its lineup, the 2011 Madza5's update was revealed at the 2010 Geneva Auto Show. The 2011 Mazda5 took the Mazda3's cue and also the smiley-face grille and pronounced fenders. Updates on the exterior include swooping creases between the beltline and rockers that are meant to appear as if it were sculpted by the wind, while helping with aerodynamics.
The rest is a more sculpted rear fascia with revised taillights. Inside, the interior remains spacious, complete with dual sliding doors and several optional features. While a diesel option is available for Europe, the America Mazda5 will sport the same 153-liter four as before, with a new optional 2.5-liter mill also available. The 2.5 will be paired with either a six-speed manual or 5-speed automatic.
