This wagon-minivan mutation called the SpaceWagon in Europe and Japan will come to the States next fall, a risky move for Mazda because of the vehicle's relatively small size. In case you're wondering, it's now understood that Americans enjoy behemoths, especially for transporting their rapidly expanding families. The 5 will take the 2.3 liter engine from the Mazda 3 and apply it to the Ford Focus C-Max architecture. The US iteration will be a six seater with fold flat second and third rows, sub-seat storage compartments perfect for transporting hashish across the border, and sliding rear doors, an American preference not used on the C-Max. Using a handy crystal ball recently polished with cheesecloth, Mazda has predicted the movement of 20,000 units annually, and a base price of $18K.
