The Mazda MPV is an MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) which was produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturing company Mazda. This vehicle was in production from 1989-2006 in Europe and the USA over two generations, but the third generation version is still in production for the Japanese market. The second generation version ceased production in the UK in 2006, but has excellent safety features, is very reliable and is also very well equipped. It also has great performance, is very practical and has a great driving position. It may not be the most refined vehicle, but it is a very good option in this class. Does this sound anything like your experience of the MPV?
The first generation (1989-99) was introduced to compete with other Japanese MPV's as this type of vehicle became extremely popular. It was originally available as a RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) vehicle which had optional 4WD. This version was built on the Mazda LV platform. It had a facelift in 1996 which added more airbags and extended the front end slightly. This version was available with a 4-speed automatic gearbox or a 5-speed manual.
The second generation (1999-2006) changed from the RWD system to a FWD (Front Wheel Drive) system. It was built on the Mazda LW platform and was restyled to give it a fresh look. This version was only available with a 5-speed automatic gearbox. It was discontinued in the USA and Europe in 2006, but a third generation was then produced for the Japanese market.
The Mazda MPV was available in the following engines: 2.0, 2.3, 2.5, 2.6 or 3.0L petrol and 2.0L diesel engines. The 2.0L diesel is the most economical engine, offering around 39mpg. The 2.0L petrol is the best petrol engine economically, offering around 28mpg. Which engine did you have and how did it perform economically?
