Mazda MPV for sale
The Mazda MPV (Multi-Purpose Passenger Vehicle) was launched in North America in 1988 where it started out as a rear-drive minivan that could seat up to seven people. It was named on Car and Driver magazine's Ten Best list for 1990 and 1991. It went on a hiatus, and re-emerged, refurbished for 2000.
Changes and upgrades to the Mazda MPV
After 2000, the front-wheel-drive design was replaced by a rear-drive layout. There were now two sliding rear doors instead of the previous swing-out kind, with the first side windows that retract into the doors and third-row seating which folds into the floor. What made the Mazda MPV different in the North American market was its sportier chassis.
Safety and Comfort
The Mazda MPV was one of the few minivans to offer optional front side-impact airbags, along with extending the vehicle nose for improved crash protection. It has good handling, and is compact, making it easier to park. If a minivan fits into your lifestyle and you are looking for a Mazda MPV for sale, check out Kijiji Autos.
