2012 Mazda MPV review

2012 Mazda MPV picture


The 2012 Mazda MPV is new for 2012. This is equipped with a 160-horsepower, 2.3-liter, I4 engine that provides 25-mpg in the city and 32-mpg on the highway. Overdrive is standard in a 5-speed manual transmission, and overdrive is optional in a 4-speed automatic transmission. The s is equipped with 220-horsepower, 3.0-liter, V6 engine that provides 20-mpg in the city and 27-mpg on the highway. Overdrive is standard in a 5-speed manual transmission, and overdrive is optional in a 5-speed automatic transmission. The price is usually just right, the flexibility attractive and the features useful and comfortable. Another important feature to car buyers-and especially minivan shoppers-is the MPV's safety. It is certainly crash-ready, as is evidenced by the ratings it has received. It has virtually mastered every collision type, making it one of a few passenger vans to receive five stars in the four collision categories.

The 2012 Mazda MPV has dual sliding doors that can be power operated. It has three rows of seating and seats seven. The second row bucket seats feature Mazda's exclusive Side-by-Slide seating arrangement. It allows the seats to move fore, aft and also together. This combines the bucket seats to create a bench. There are also assist grips on the backs of the front seats, driver and passenger vanity mirrors and larger hooks in the cargo area to provide more flexibility for tying down big, bulky items. The V6 is able to generate up to 200 horsepower at 6200 rpm and 200 lb-ft of torque at 3000 rpm. It use a front-wheel drive setup. A 5-speed automatic transmission is the sole transaxle available for 2012. Teamed up with the V6 engine, it gives the MPV a fuel rating of 18/25 mpg (city/highway). It includes a rear heater, heated mirrors, a heavy-duty wiper motor, a larger washer tank, transmission-oil cooler and a heavy-duty battery and radiator.

The 2012 Mazda MPV features an all-new 3.0-litre, DOHC, 24-valve V6 engine that produces 200 horsepower and 200 lbs-ft of torque. The standard five-speed automatic transmission is also new and makes a big difference in the vehicle's performance. A popular choice among families and those with active lifestyle, it features a redesigned interior that accommodates lots of passengers and plenty of cargo. Add to that the all-new powerful upgraded engine and precision handling, for a versatile vehicle with tremendous performance. They essentially mirror each other point for point, with the ES model featuring extra luxuries and safety features. ABS prevents the wheels from locking in a hard stop, so you can maintain steering control while braking. And ABS is particularly valuable on slippery surfaces, where it reduces the chances of a skid. EBD automatically optimizes the front and rear braking force to give you the shortest stops, whether the MPV cargo area is fully loaded or empty.
