Ever since I was introduced to the Mazda brand back in 2003 when I bought my Mazda Protege, I’ve been taking a look at their cars as they remodeled them and changed names. For instance: The Mazda Protege is now a Mazda 3. Looks super cool and sporty; totally something I would drive if I didn’t have 3 children. My brother in law has a Mazda 6 and that year’s car was sexy. So when I first saw the Mazda CX-9 in the last 2-3 years, I fell in love.
I believe the next step in my car journey is an SUV and I have 3 different models in mind. However, the Mazda CX-9 was always my first love. You’ll have to check it out with me.
Thanks to Earnhart Auto Center’s Mr. Ed, we have the chance to check out this beautiful 2016 Mazda CX-9 Touring AWD pictured above. Here are just some of the vehicle options in this specific car.
- 3rd Row Seat (My favorite Option!)
- All Wheel Drive
- Aluminum Wheels
- Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror
- Automatic Headlights
- Auxiliary Audio Input
- BLACK LEATHER TRIMMED SEATS
- Back-Up Camera
- Blind Spot Monitor
- Bluetooth Connection
- Brake Assist
- Child Safety Locks
- Climate Control
My very favorite thing and must have when it comes to an SUV is 3 rows. I have 2 growing boys, one who is getting close to being as tall as me. And we’re just going to need the space. 3 rows means 7 seats. That also means I can pick up my nieces and nephew and we can all go somewhere. I’ve never been able to do that because 6 children either means an SUV or Minivan.
One thing I don’t love? The mileage. I’m used to my cars getting at least 33+ miles per gallon because I’m a little crazy about conserving gas. I’m not sure how well I’ll take to switching from a small car to a larger one that uses way more gas. It might bother me just a little. But we’ll all love the space.
