Visit Mazda for more information on the Mazda Protege5.

The 2003 Mazda Protege5 is a station wagon that combines a sporty look and feel with good fuel economy, and exterior and interior trimmings. Developed from the winning formula that has helped its cousin the Protegé sedan move consistently up the sales rankings in 2001 and 2002, it shares many of the Protégé's attributes. It also incorporates extras intended to appeal to versatile consumers.

Available Models
The 2003 Mazda Protege5 comes with many attractive standard features. It is a 4-door wagon, with option packages that offer the consumer the latest in safety, comfort, convenience, and appearance.

Interior Features
The 2003 Mazda Protege5 comes with attractive cabin decor. It offers all the interior features that are standard in the Protege sedan. These include a tilt steering wheel, cloth upholstery, a split folding rear seat, AM/FM/CD player, digital clock, intermittent wipers, front bucket seats, map lights, and remote fuel-door/decklid release. It is also provided with features that are standard in the LX and ES models, namely air conditioning, cruise control, power locks, windows, and mirrors, a tachometer, remote entry system, and a height-adjustable driver seat, which adds to the already good inside visibility. The 2003 Mazda Protege5 will also have a leather-wrapped steering wheel and silver gauge faces, and its superior sound system will come with six speakers.

Like the Protege sedan, the 2003 Mazda Protege5 offers ample leg room and head space. Its rear seat is easily accessible and relatively roomy, and is a locking 60/40 folding seat that allows for extra cargo room. Also standard in the Protege5 is a rigid cargo cover.

Exterior Features
Like the ES model of the Protege sedan, the 2003 Mazda Protege5 has alloy wheels as a standard feature, and high performance tires. Another useful standard feature is the roof rack.

The 2003 Mazda Protege5 is powered by a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder 16-valve engine. As with its sedan equivalents, this allows it to offer 130 hp at 6000 rpm and 135 lbs-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. For this wagon, 5-speed manual transmission is standard, with automatic 4-speed transmission an option. This automatic transmission is available with the Sport AT system, which allows the driver to shift manually if desired.

Safety and Security
Safety and security features in the Protégé 5 include dual front airbags and an emergency trunk release. Options allow the consumer to include a theft deterrent system with an alarm, as well as front-side airbags and anti-lock brakes. Like the Protege's ES model, the Mazda Protege5 is provided with 4-wheel disc brakes and fog lights as standard features.
