CX-5 Mazda…. Take a Ride!

Mazda’s have grown.  Their vehicles are so fun to drive yet still affordable.  The CX-5 that I just test drove was one of them.  Sporty, roomy, all your needs  and price is excellent.

After taking this CX-5 for a week, it was such a fun car.  It’s a smaller SUV (CUV) then I usually would purchase but after driving it I really enjoyed it.  Zipping around town, pulling into parking spaces, family of 4… no prob, handling, gas mileage, etc…   overall, it wasn’t something I expected.  I didn’t want to leave the car!

Mazda’s have a great thing going for them.  I love them knob that you can control all the Navigational devices (radio) from at your armrest.  Brilliant idea.  No need to reach up to touch the screen, instead you just turn the knob and push to your desire.  Makes it easier while you drive.

LOVE the color and look of the interior.  Race looking but still fits all of us. Lots of room and all the features is just enough to not overwhelm you.  Hate when its too much that you don’t know what the heck to do with it all.  I want a user friendly car.  This is totally that!
