Choosing the right vehicle for your family is never easy. While single shoppers can prioritize their own needs and choose a car that is optimized to their personal tastes, families need to balance the competing needs of the parents, who may want something economical, dependable, and driveable, and the kids, who need space, entertainment, and comfort.
Fortunately, the SUV revolution in the late 90s and early 2000s has led to an explosion of different family-friendly options, and automotive leaders like Mazda are turning out thoughtful, well-built vehicles designed to meet many particular family needs. Here are a few of their most exciting offerings.
Ever since the Mazda CX5 debuted in 2013, it has received rave reviews as one of the most interesting crossover SUVs on the market. Like many Mazda vehicles, it does an excellent job of balancing performance with genuinely pleasurable driving and a surprisingly luxurious interior. The CX5’s sleek design and swooping lines leave plenty of space for seating room, and Mazda has spared no expense in making the passenger spaces as comfortable as possible.
If you are looking for a deal on a Mazda CX5, the first place to check out is your local Mazda dealership. One of the most popular Mazdas on the market, the CX5 is also one of the most readily available, and shopping at an authorized Mazda dealer will give you access to some exciting trim options.
For those who are looking for a vehicle that can fit the whole family, but which doesn’t compromise on style and driveability, the three-row CX9 is the perfect SUV. Equipped with high end features and a luxurious interior, the CX9 offers a dynamic and enjoyable driving experience while also delivering where it matters: light weight, maneuverable, and outfitted with a fuel efficient powertrain, it is up for anything a Canadian road trip brings your way.
The CX9 also comes with a fully up-to-date infotainment system that syncs with your phone and provides USB connectivity, so it’s also easier than ever to keep the children entertained.
Mazda 5 Wagon
The Mazda 5 is one of the great, unsung heroes of the current Mazda line-up. While it lacks the sporty looks of the Mazda 3 hatchback and isn’t quite as spacious as the CX9, the Mazda 5 is one of the most versatile vehicles on the road. If you need to carry passengers, it’s got three rows of seating and more than enough room for the whole family; if you need to move someone into a new apartment, simply fold down the back seats and you have a spacious moving van.
In the fifty years that Mazda has been operating in Canada, it has won a dedicated following among drivers who appreciate Mazda’s blend of style, driveability, and competitive pricing. For families looking for a reliable vehicle that can get them where they are going this spring, these are just three of the many options available at your local Mazda dealership.
