Mazda 5 won't be replaced - save thousands on final cars
Production of the Mazda 5 is about to cease, but it's still on sale for now and we've found the pick of the deals online...
Production of the Mazda 5 MPV is ending and there are no plans for a replacement.
Mazda officials confirmed to What Car? that sales of the 5 both in the UK and worldwide had dropped significantly in the face of growing popularity from both five- and 7-seat SUVs.
Annual sales of the Mazda 5 in the UK are now only in the hundreds, and as such the company will not be replacing it.
Mazda says that the 5 is still available to order from dealers for the time being, and models are still in stock.
It is in the process of being wound down, though, and the company is no longer spending any money marketing it.

The Mazda 5 is a good driving and reliable MPV that has a spacious cabin with bags of equipment.
It’s comfortable to be in and has solid body control, impressive grip as well as quick steering, and the 1.6-litre diesel engine in our recommended version has a claimed fuel economy of 54.3mpg to help keep running costs low.
The interior space could be used more effectively; the central seat in the middle row is too narrow, and folding down the middle row requires lifting the seat bases.
Should I add any options?
The 5 comes with climate control, cruise control, four electric windows, remote locking, automatic lights and wipers, a touchscreen sat-nav, Bluetooth, heated front seats, reversing camera and parking sensors all as standard.
Different paintwork options are available for £463.
