Talking about the cabin of the Mazda 5, the MPV provides seating for a total of 6 people, with the driver inclusive. Ample cargo space is provided, and the sliding rear doors allow easy entrance and exit for the rear seat passengers. The first generation of the Mazda 5 was not fitted with some of the best technologies available, but over the years, accessories such as Bluetooth connectivity, touchscreen based central console, adjustable headrest and seats have been fitted into the newer generations of the Mazda 5.
What are the best features of the Mazda 5?
The Mazda 5 provides seating for five passengers and one seat for a driver through three rows. This suggests that the second row seats would be captain chairs, and can be adjusted to fit the passenger’s seating preference. This feature stands out the most on the Mazda 5.
Nigerian Used and Tokunbo Mazda 5 in Nigeria
The Mazda brand does not have a strong presence in Nigeria through authorised dealerships, but their vehicles are made available to customers through independent vehicle importers. The Mazda 5 is available either as a foreign used (Tokunbo) variant or a Nigerian used option. Both foreign used and Nig used Mazda 5 vehicles would provide the required performance provided they have been maintained and serviced at the proper times they were required and do not have any damages which would be very expensive for the purchaser to repair. With this noted, it is important to have an authorised and trusted automobile mechanic inspect the vehicle for possible damages before purchase is made.
