What’s sleek, smooth, and red all over? Hint: In our case it was soul red metallic, but it has also been spotted zooming around town in crystal white pearl mica, meteor gray mica, sonic silver metallic, titanium flash mica, blue reflex mica, deep crystal blue mica, and jet black mica.
The answer is simple: the 2016 Mazda CX-5.
Last month during our DFW staycation, I had the pleasure of partnering with the Mazda Corporation and driving the CX-5 for a week. As I prepared to drive the car initially, I felt right at home. I #DriveMazda already (although my Mazda is ten years old), but I knew this car would fit into my family’s lifestyle. The kids and I loved the smooth ride of the CX-5, but as a mom, I especially loved the latest safety, eco-friendly, and road assistance technology that Mazda offers it drivers.
Skyactiv is a brand name for a series of technologies developed by Mazda which increase fuel efficiency and engine output. Skyactiv Technology first appeared in Mazda vehicles in 2011 and help the CX-5 get 26 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway. Additionally, all new Mazdas that are covered on the Mazda warranty program are eligible for roadside assistance and the free roadside assistance app from both the iTunes and Google app stores.
Here are some additional facts about the 2016 Mazda CX-5: MSRP from $21,795; dimensions: 179″ L x 72″ W x 66″ H; curb weight: 3,212 to 3,589 lbs; and horsepower: 155 to 184g hp. You can discover more information about the Mazda Corporation and dealers near you from Mazda’s website.
The 2016 Mazda CX-5 did not disappoint. In a perfect world, my teens would have preferred slightly more leg room in the back seat, however with two seated in the back and one in the passenger side of the front, they did manage to be comfortable. For all four though, it was definitely a keeper!
What features do you look for most in a new car?

I was actually looking at this car when I was in the market. We ended up going with something a bit bigger and I am glad I did. We really need the room. I really loved the Mazda though, too!
I’ve never owned a Mazda. But, I love how sporty this one looks and the touch screen on the dash!
Oh I’ve seen the new Mazda and i love the look of it. Great that all four of you fit so well. Love the display too.
That’s a sweet ride! I haven’t owned a Mazda but several of my friends have. The Miata is on my list for a car someday!
This is a great looking car! I love the idea of the roadside assistance app too. I always seem to get flat tires 🙂
What a really unique and fun car to get to drive around in! Love that keyless feature – and I would totally get spoiled using that!
Wow! What a great car! I usually look for features that will make my life easier with the kids and my husband – dual climate control is a must for us.
What a great car! I love things that help my kids be comfortable. I would love a car that has climate control in the back seat!
A car with more leg room in the back seat is always a plus for me. The features of 2016 Mazda CX-5 are so forward, especially the phone connection to the system via Bluetooth which disabled text message or social media notifications. It’s a great system to get away from this particular distraction.
Now that is one sleek and smooth car. I have always loved Mazda’s and the colour is just so beautiful xx
This looks like such a fun car! We are in the market for a new car – one that fits three car seats. I am ready to upgrade from my basic, no frills car 🙂
Awesome looking car! I love that it has roadside assistance as well, it definitely makes you feel safe while traveling because you know that you can rely on it whenever you’re going to need it. I like how spacious the car is, perfect for a large family!
I love the look of the Mazda CX-5 a lot! So many awesome features for a busy mama on the go like me.
Red vehicles are always so much fun! This one is definitely sleek and I love the keyless options on it.
Guess what? I just bought a Mazda CX-5 and I am loving it! I got the Grand Touring package. So far I am enjoying my ‘zoom-zoom’ moments, but I am still figuring out all of the features.
The most important features in a car to me are good sound in the bluetooth, roomy but small footprint because I don’t like to drive huge vehicles and gas mileage!
So so cool that you got to drive around in this. I love this car and the colour is gorgeous!
That car looks both sporty and convenient. It’s hard to find all that in one car. I would love to drive on of these myself.
