5 Things A Dog Owner Will Love About Mazda CX-5
1. Compact Crossover SUV – Mazda CX-5 is a 5-passenger, compact crossover SUV. It’s not big and boxy, a suv that drives like much a smaller sedan. The back seat can be tight for three passengers but pawfect for one to two small/medium dogs or one large dog. The ‘dog headroom’ is just right for large dogs.
2. Fuel Efficiency – The gas mileage is great. Kelly Blue Book rated Mazda CX-5 as the 4th fuel efficient 2016 SUV. The amount you save on gas can be used for your dog’s food, toy, and health fund.
3. Priced Well with Premium Features – Inside and out, the Mazda CX-5 looks, feels, and handles like something much more expensive than what it costs.
1-4 are continue to be the reasons why many consumer buy used Mazda CX-5. Sugar’s pal Grover just bought a used Mazda CX-5. “We LOVE our new (used) CX-5! First, we all feel very safe when in the car. The back-up camera, blind spot monitoring system and brake-alert are amazing features. Grover’s dad loves the 2.5L engine; it’s pickup on the freeway and how it handles turns like a pro, while Grover’s mom loves the fuel economy and roomy interior. Everyone loves the integrated Pandora app so we can listen to our favorite songs in the car.”
4. Safety – Mazda is obsessed with consumer safety. The CX-5 is an all-wheel drive which helps improve traction in rain, snow and rugged terrain. Other safety features include, blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert.
The CX-5 is named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This safety recognition will definitely provide a dog owner a peace of mind. Travel safely with your dog. Buckle Up! Use a proper pet travel dog harness like Sleepypod Clickit.
Mazda CX-5 was pawfect to cruise Rodeo Drive. Sugar had a pawsome time! A must photo opportunity – Mazda CX-5 next to the iconic GUCCI Rodeo Drive building. The hip “deep crystal blue” color made the CX-5 extra fun to drive.
Did You Know? Mazda’s US headquarters is located in Southern California. We always pass by Mazda’s USA Design Center. Just had to stop for a ‘photo opp.’ We heard that this Mazda facility offers a tour, will definitely check on it.
