    I'm curious cuz I think its a nice 7-seater that doesnt have to be an AUV, SUV, or oversized van. Ok ren sana pang everyday car since its compact enough especially if you have a family na.

    Just wondering why local Mazda isn't selling it here yet.

    Word was the regional production hub for the MZ5 was supposed to be in Indonesia.

    Then we can either import CBU units from them or get CKD packs from them.

    Unfortunately, hanggang ngayon, wala pa ring response.

    Don't know when.

    Just a correction it's a 6 seater not a 7 seater.

    Well, given that the Mazda 3 isn't offered with the right gearbox since its launch, I don't see other models here in the near future.

    Depends on who's counting. Here in the Philippines, the Kia Pride (Ford Festiva) isn't a four seater, it's a nine-seater. (as long as you're okay with sitting in someone's lap... )

    But seeing the elbow room on the Carens, which is supposedly a six seater and a bit smaller (supposedly) than the 5, I'd say the Mazda5 could probably seat seven Pinoy-size passengers.

    Sana. Pero mukhang malabo. Mazda Phils hasn't introduced a new vehicle in about over a year (if you consider the Mazda 6 2.3L new). Correct me if I'm wrong tho.

    Also, the market for small vans isn't that big considering the models Toyota has to offer, unless Mazda can price the 5 competitively.

    The middle row are captains chairs and the 3rd row can only seat 2 people so unless they will do a interior redesign just for the RP market, which is highly unlikely given the cost and number of units that will be sold, then it's just a 6 seater. See the website for the interior pics of the Mazda 5.
