Mazda 5 2.0 and Weinsberg

PB reviewed on 01 September 2021 a Mazda 5 2.0 (110 Kw/150 PS, Year: 2010 - 2015) with a Weinsberg CaraOne 400 LK of n.a. kg.

It works, well enough, and it's my first time towing so I'm not experienced. But you definitely feel the caravan there, particularly hill starts.
The car was also very bouncy - like a rocking horse - but we fitted new rear shock absorbers and also helper springs, and this has made a big difference. Now quite tolerable (you still know it's there when driving on a bumpy surface).
Fuel economy is around 20mpg towing.

Mazda 5 1.6 CiTD and Avondale

Ray reviewed on 19 December 2011 a Mazda 5 1.6 CiTD (85 Kw/116 PS, Year: 2011 - 2015) with a Avondale Dart 470-2 of 1120 kg.

i have towed with this combination thru France, Portugal & Spain covering over 2000 miles and found that itwas an ideal tow car/ caravan set up. I will be off to Italy in 2012 for around a month in the spring & portugal again in september

Mazda 5 2.0 CiTD hp and Caravan

Dr Ed reviewed on 14 January 2010 a Mazda 5 2.0 CiTD hp (105 Kw/143 PS, Year: 2008 - 2010) with a Caravan of 1250 kg.

Pulls well but drinks diesel like its going out of fashion when towing. I managed a meagre 22mpg pulling a Fendt 410 Saphire (a small light van) on round trip to Provence in summer 2009; fuel economy without van is mid/high 30's.

Mazda 5 2.0 and Bailey

P Barker reviewed on 26 July 2009 a Mazda 5 2.0 (107 Kw/146 PS, Year: 2005 - 2008) with a Bailey Ranger 540/6 of 1260 kg.

What a fantastic match.....We have driven well over 3000 miles this year, both in Europe and in the UK with so far no problems. Fully loaded with 2 bikes on the roof of the car the car preformed spot on. Fuel at about 22mpg when loaded and 39 mpg with normal driving unloaded....

Mazda 5 2.0 CiTD hp and Caravan

Gary reviewed on 26 September 2008 a Mazda 5 2.0 CiTD hp (105 Kw/143 PS, Year: 2008 - 2010) with a Caravan leeg: 1000 kg of 1150 kg.

Got this car at the start of summer, it has been an absolute dream to drive and tow with. Loads of torque from the 146hp diesel engine.

It also maneuvers really well and makes reversing far easier than my last car.

Really can't fault the car no issues at all for towing
