The 2012 Mazda 5 is a new age people hauler with enough room for 6 yet it maintains a car like ride and a wagon/van profile with exceptional fuel economy.
It’s also reasonably priced and can be fun to drive…especially if you get the manual version. In fact the manual version of the 2012 Mazda 5 is one of the people movers with three rows of seating that can ne manually shifted and purchased in the United States.
The newish Nissan Murano is one of the new breed of very popular all-wheel-drive Crossovers. It’s tall, fairly powerful and comes with a CVT transmission to help get better fuel economy.
It also represents the very popular and growing Crossover segment that many Americans have embraced as the new family hauler.
So which one of these cars fits the current American lifestyle better?
