  Consider a Mazda 5
  Posted by: RedCrossRandy on Oct-04-12 9:19 AM (EST)
 

My wife used to drive an MPV and I was so impressed by the handling that when I had to replace my Ford Sportrac, I got a Mazda 5. Looks like a cross between an MPV and a Honda Fit. I routinely carry two canoes on top and I have plenty of room for gear. I've also carried 6 passengers. Love how all the rear seats fold down as needed. I'm getting much better milage than I ever got with my truck, and the best part is the roofline is a foot lower, so hoisting up the boats on top is less of an effort (that feature becomes more important the older I get)!
