2000 Mazda MPV -- The 2000 MPV was completely redesigned for 2000. No longer with rear-wheel drive and hinged-doors, the 2000 MPV now shares the standard "minivan" front wheel drive and second-row sliding door assemblage as its competitors. Edgier in appearance, the 2000 MPV has an aggressive air dam, sporty side-skirts, and even a "ground effects styling package." The 170-horsepower, 2.5-liter V6 Duratec engine is is the same one that's used in the Ford Contour, Mercury Mystique, and Cougar.
