What’s sleek, smooth, and red all over? Hint: In our case it was soul red metallic, but it has also been spotted zooming around town in crystal white pearl mica, meteor gray mica, sonic silver metallic, titanium flash mica, blue reflex mica, deep crystal blue mica, and jet black mica.
The answer is simple: the 2016 Mazda CX-5.
Last month during our DFW staycation, I had the pleasure of partnering with the Mazda Corporation and driving the CX-5 for a week. As I prepared to drive the car initially, I felt right at home. I #DriveMazda already (although my Mazda is ten years old), but I knew this car would fit into my family’s lifestyle. The kids and I loved the smooth ride of the CX-5, but as a mom, I especially loved the latest safety, eco-friendly, and road assistance technology that Mazda offers it drivers.
Skyactiv is a brand name for a series of technologies developed by Mazda which increase fuel efficiency and engine output. Skyactiv Technology first appeared in Mazda vehicles in 2011 and help the CX-5 get 26 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. Additionally, all new Mazdas that are covered on the Mazda warranty program are eligible for roadside assistance and the free roadside assistance app from both the iTunes and Google app stores.
Here are some additional facts about the 2016 Mazda CX-5: MSRP from $21,795; dimensions: 179″ L x 72″ W x 66″ H; curb weight: 3,212 to 3,589 lbs; and horsepower: 155 to 184g hp. You can discover more information about the Mazda Corporation and dealers near you from Mazda’s website.
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 did not disappoint. In a perfect world, my teens would have preferred slightly more leg room in the back seat, however with two seated in the back and one in the passenger side of the front, they did manage to be comfortable. For all four though, it was definitely a keeper!
