Mazda is debuting its updated Mazda5 at the Geneva auto show. Mazda says it is the first production car to fully use its Nagare design language, which emulates the flow of wind and water in nature.

The 2010 Mazda3 used a similar grille treatment, but the Mazda5 takes Nagare further with flow lines down the sides.

The Mazda5 can, according to Mazda, seat six, although five is more realistic in the U.S. market. A middle seat in the second row, called karakuri by Mazda, can be converted to a storage container.

In Europe, the top engine will be a direct injection 2-liter four cylinder, part of Mazda's new Sky-G line of engines. For the U.S. market, Mazda is likely to continue with the direct injection 2.3-liter four cylinder, also found in the Mazda3.

This dashboard configuration doesn't seem to allow room for an optional LCD navigation system, but Mazda may give it a similar treatment as the Mazda3, with a small LCD showing flash-based navigation in the upper display area, shown here with red LED information.
