2012 Mazda5 has starting price of $19,990

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 26, 2010

Pricing of the 2012 Mazda5 doesn’t quite reflect the extent of the makeover that it has received. With the revisions that it has had, it seems like a steal that a 2012 5 can be bought for $19,990 (including destination), only $595 more than a comparable 2010 model. At this price, consumers get an entry-level Sport model.

No option packages are offered but even base 5s feature the larger 2.5-liter I-4, ABS, stability and traction control, 16-inch aluminum wheels, a six-speaker audio system with an auxiliary input, three-row side curtain air bags, and cruise control. A six-speed manual transmission is offered as standard and is available only on the Sport trim.

However, a five-speed automatic is optional, costing buyers about $1100. With a starting price of $21,990, Mazda5 Touring models have several additional standard features (for a price hike of only $500).

The touring trim features the five-speed automatic, 17-inch wheels, fog lamps, side sill extensions, rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity at no extra charge.

Getting a Moonroof and Audio package gives the buyer a Sirius satellite radio, an in-dash six-disc CD changer, and a power moonroof for $1140 more. But these features are standard on the 2012 Mazda5 Grand Touring model, which has a price tag of $24,670.

Other standard features include a xenon HID headlamps, automatic headlamp control, heated door mirrors and front seats, leather seating trim, rain-sensing wipers, and leather-trimmed seating. The 2012 Mazda5 will arrive at dealerships nationwide in January 2011.
