2001 Mazda Premacy 1.8 petrol
Good MPV for the money
Engine rather noisy when driving at 120kph and over as noise protrude into cabin. Wind noise also higher.
Very torquey ride considering an MPV of 7 seater. Road holding good like saloons. Fuel consumption reasonable as compare to other MPV's in the market. Getting average of 11km/litre of fuel. Roomy for 5 seats. If fully use up on 7 seats, some legroom compensation needed with juggling between middle row seat. High seating position without the need to climb in. Thsi is just what I need. Meaning the floor board is same as saloon cars. Only the seats heights are higher. With the ceiling also higher. Stable at high speeds around 160kph. 3rd row seat should have split fold rather than complete fold with removal option.
Never regret buying the Mazda Premacy 1.8A. Surprisingly powerful engine match in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

In Europe, Mazda Premacy only has 5 seats! Different version, is this what we call the MPV?

Premacy's are consider MPV since the seats are able to shift or move around creating space when in need. As far as I knew, 5 seat version have individual seats by itself. Whereas those 7 seater version have bench seats for middle and last row. Although it can be slide, release and fold to create space when needed. Enigne matching normally depends on the countries dealer or distributors what is suitable and easy for them to market considering the needs in each country.
