5 Great Cars for Mom in 2013

Mazda Mazda5
Starting MSRP:
$19,940

The sporty Mazda5 is a great minivan for moms with attitude.

Although smaller than traditional minivans such as the Honda (HMC - Get Report) Odyssey or Toyota (TM - Get Report) Sienna, the Mazda5 more than makes up for its diminutive size with sports-car-like handling.

The vehicle's reduced dimensions also make for easier parking and backing up, while a Mazda5 with automatic transmission gets an impressive 22 mpg/city and 28 mpg/highway.

Inside, the Mazda5 can hold up to six people in relative comfort, with roomy captain's chairs as standard equipment in the front and second rows. Third-row seating is a bit tight, but accessible easily thanks to wide sliding side doors.

The Mazda5 also offers a generous 44.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the third-row seats folded down, or a massive 97.7 cubic feet of storage capacity when you fold the second row flat as well.

As for safety, while neither the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have crash-tested the Mazda5, the minivan does come standard with stability control, side-curtain airbags and plenty of other protective features.
