Mazda CX-5 and My Drive to Wayne, PA
Mazda CX-5 and My Drive to Wayne, PA
Most of you know that I have an extremely long daily commute to work, from Middletown, DE to West Chester, PA and now two of those days include driving to Wayne, PA.
Needless to say, those long drives in my small Bloggy Buggy have really put wear and tear on my body which is why I started seeing a chiropractor.
I did however, get a reprieve a few weeks ago thanks to Drive Shop USA and Mazda.
I had an opportunity to review this 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring and it really made my commute much smoother and much more comfortable.
It was the perfect size for me and I didn’t feel overwhelmed on the highway. The ride was enjoyable and I loved the Infotainment Center with the controls on the middle console. This was a great feature because it keeps your eyes focused on the road and not on the dashboard panel.
It was also perfect for me since I am left handed but right hand dominant. The steering wheel can be adjusted up and down as well as being collapsible so it provides much more of a ergonomic grip.
Check out the video to see what I mean.
The only disappointment was the lack of a “cigarette lighter” power outlet but perhaps you can order it with a ‘smokers package’ I am not even sure if those are still available, just happy that I no longer need it! #exsmoker
There was plenty of storage/cargo space and I loved the Blind Spot Monitoring System; Departure Lane Warning; Rearview Camera and of course the Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming.
It was also great on gas mileage, averaging 26 MPG, 24 city and 30 highway, which is something I am always cognizant of. The 2016 Mazda CX-5 received the 2016 “Best Value Family Car” award from Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association and I have to agree.
Another great feature is the Madza Drive for Good Promotion. This charitable program was launched in 2013 and it’s Madza’s commitment to charitable service and a way to give back.

I wished the weather had been a bit warmer so that I could have driven her down to the shore, but instead I stayed local and my co-workers and I enjoyed a few short trips around town including a stop at this walking trail.
Watch this video then leave a comment if the 2016 Mazda CX-5 would be a vehicle that would fit your family’s style.
The MSRP on this model was $32,340 which included the following optional equipment, however, the base price was $29,470, not bad for the ride and style of the Mazda CX-5.

It looks like really comfortable!
Yes it was smooth sailing to work!
Drive in style and comfort 🙂
Yes, I love these larger vehicles but my Bloggy Buggy gets a little nervous each time a new one arrives.
Ooh, this is tight on the inside! I could see myself rolling something like this! #productreveiwparty
Yes, me too, the interiors of this vehicle was definitely nice – making the ride even more smooth!
O my I love the looks of this vehicle. We are still on the hunt for the right one so your posts are so very helpful! #productreviewparty on girl and have a blessed weekend!
Thank you my son found a 2007 BMW for a great price, so now it’s sits in our driveway. Can’t wait for him to return to school so mama can drive it!!! Have a great weekend my dear.
That is a nice looking ride! I love SUVs but sometimes they are a little too big for me. I’m not the greatest driver apparently. But that size looks just right! #ProductReviewParty
Mazda, one of my favorite car brands! I loved test driving this car out, I always found myself using the sports button for added power. #ProductReviewParty
Speed demon – you sound like my son! Can’t wait until the girls get their license you may tend to slow down a bit more or tell them too – lol
Excellent review. I am not familiar with the brand but you have me sold on its style and comfort!
Thank you, I hadn’t taken much notice to the Mazda brand but now I can’t stop thinking about it – such a smooth ride.
Really loved this car. So smooth and chic! Great review, sis!
Yes, I saw you reviewed a Mazda as well. I didn’t realize how comfy and sleek they were.
