Welcome to another Affordable Cars for Single Moms Series. I admit it. I love driving amazing cars! It’s the speed, the features, having great control along a long stretch of highway. Great when I’m alone in my car but when I’m in mom mode I think about other things altogether. Like comfort, convenience, and space for my tall teens and nephews. As long as I have my phone holder like the WizGear™ Universal Air Vent Magnetic Car Mount Holder so I can see my Waze app I’m good.
Why the SUV is My Bae
Driving the Mazda CX-5 was a treat because one of my favorite types of vehicles is the SUV or sport Utility Vehicle. They have the best of both worlds. It drives like a car and has the height and space like a van. But I don’t and have never wanted a van despite my kids wanting me to get one. Sorry but I’m not that kind of mom. My dream car was a Camaro before kids. Driving a sports car is my dream but the kids came so I’ve put it on the back burner for a while until my nest is empty ;-).
The Mazda CX-5 Rivals But Can’t Replace My True Boo
Back to driving the Mazda CX-5. It was a nice experience. I really appreciated the upgraded features I can’t get on my own 2004 Honda CR-V. I’m sure the newer models of the CR-V has the features I got to play with in the CX-5. I could tell the engine had a little less pick up and go as my car but it handled well. It is a nice smaller suv like my own car and very spacious.
Watch My Video Car Review of the Mazda CX-5
I won’t bore you with making you read all the details. Instead I have a 3-part video series that you can view below. The price of this car is quite affordable at $21k for the base model and $28k for the bells and whistles. Mazda is a pretty solid brand so definitely take it out for a test drive.
What do you think about this car? Do you think it would make a great addition to your family?
