This looks to be one of the more modern minivans out there. Originaly designed for the European and Japanese market, the Mazda 5 should be making it over here by the end of 2005, in small numbers.
It seats 6 and will probably use the 2.3 Liter engine from the 6.
It doesn’t replace the MPV. The 5 is smaller. And an all new MPV is just around the corner anyway…
