Mazda’s small van will be phased out for 2015, as compact crossover sales eat away at the Mazda5’s declining market share.
According to Automotive News, the Mazda5 will be replaced by the upcoming Mazda CX-3 small crossover, while the three-row CX-5 and CX-9 will complete its size and passenger-carrying capabilities.
Despite its cult, sales of the 5 were marginal, with just under 14,000 units sold in 2013. In its best year, Mazda only sold 22,000 units. While other Mazda products have received new, more efficient Skyactiv engines and lightweight technology, the 5 has languished with an outdated powertrain and few updates since its 2010 redesign.
While the CX-5 can’t accommodate 6 people or have sliding doors, it will likely continue with the Mazda5’s main quirk: a manual transmission.
