The recently released statement from Mazda Canada confirms that the Mazda5 minivan will no longer be continued in Canada. This announcement comes as the market shifts towards a preference for crossover vehicles.
As consumer preferences continue to shift towards crossover vehicles, Mazda Canada has decided not to bring a replacement Mazda5 to the Canadian market beyond the current 2017 model year. Mazda Canada will focus on providing continuous improvements to our award-winning CX-line of crossover vehicles, which includes the CX‑3, CX‑5, and CX‑9. These vehicles provide excellent people-moving capabilities along with Mazda’s full suite of SKYACTIV Technology, KODO – Soul of Motion design, i‑ACTIVSENSE safety equipment, and i‑ACTIV All-Wheel Drive.
Canadian production of the 2017 Mazda5 will end in November 2017.
