2019 Mazda 5 MiniVan Engine and Fuel Economy

There are two engines available under the hood of an all-new 2019 Mazda 5 MiniVan. A 2.5-liter drivetrain can produce up to 157 HP and 163 lb-ft of torque. This four-cylinder unit is available with the 5-speed automatic and 6-speed manual transmission. And while the 5-speed automatic gearbox is a rare thing to see, it shifts gears smoothly and is very eager. Front-wheel drive is standard and Mazda 5 can go on a regular gasoline.

Fuel economy is 21 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Overall, those numbers are not going to win a car race, but it is more than enough for a minivan and its purpose. On top of that, Mazda is ready to introduce a new 2.2-liter diesel engine that will be available in the U.S. While the figures are not available yet, we expect a much better fuel economy and better emission.
