Picture an SUV and you probably think about a vehicle that is perfect for families or individuals due to its incredible versatility. In this respect, the Mazda CX-5 truly lives up to expectations, giving you plenty of ways to use the vehicle or even just various interior configurations. The Mazda CX-5 offers even more than the standard SUV available on the market today.
Cargo and Seating Versatility
When all seats are upright, you can comfortably fit 5 passengers in the CX-5, along with 966 liters worth of cargo. This makes it perfect for grocery shopping, driving carpool, taking your children to extracurricular activities or sports, or going on a road trip. There will still be enough leg room for everyone with room left over for all their items and cargo. The GX trim has 60/40 split and folding rear seats; folding these down gives you 1,835 liters for storage. With a simple configuration change like this you can suddenly fit twice the amount of stuff as you could without the seats folded. Upgrade to the GS or GT trim and the rear seats fold down to give you 1,852 liters. For added versatility, these models have rear seats that split 40/20/40, letting you fit 4 passengers plus longer cargo. This will help you regardless of where your adventures are taking you.
The standard CX-5 comes with front-wheel drive and a 6-speed manual transmission, but you can increase its abilities and traction by upgrading to all-wheel drive. Keep in mind that to upgrade to all-wheel drive, you will need the 6-speed automatic transmission. Doing so, however, will give you the ability to tackle more challenging terrain. It will also give you the confidence you need to handle winter conditions, such as snow and ice. Both of these are common Canadian road conditions, making the Mazda CX-5 an ideal vehicle for navigating the area in.
Many Ways to Use It
Between the available all-wheel drive and the interior configurations, you can easily use the CX-5 in nearly any way that you want. Road trips in the CX-5 are easy with the available navigation system to guide you to new locations. You can easily plug in your destination and not waste time getting sidetracked or lost. You can also fold down the rear seats and use the Mazda CX-5 to move to a new apartment or house or bring home a new piece of furniture. Easily stack all your moving boxes inside and head out to your new home. With so many interior configurations and great features, your imagination is the only obstacle to finding ways to use the CX-5.
