So you’re at home with your family in self-isolation or quarantine. Now is the time to make the most of the opportunity and have some fun! If you are anything like me, you may be itching to get back out on the open road, traveling with your family to discover new roads and destinations. While we might not be able to get out quite yet, we can still make the best of our time taking leisurely rides throughout the countryside. If you do not feel up to that quite yet, that is okay. Why not find ways to enjoy family-friendly activities to do during “social distancing.” We were able to discover quite a few news ways all while enjoying the 2020 Mazda CX-9!
The stunning soul red crystal metallic Mazda CX-9 is a spacious car, providing lots of comforts including a third row. With a beautifully designed interior featuring Napa leather, the 2020 Mazda CX-9 Signature gives you luxury without the price tag. Known for its sleek lines and modern design aesthetic, this is one SUV where you can sit back, relax and enjoy all the benefits of the vehicle without leaving your driveway!
As a luxurious family vehicle, the Mazda CX-9 is a sporty and sleek full-size crossover vehicle engineered with Skyactiv G 2.5T-liter turbocharged engine which basically means that it provides excellent fuel efficiency without compromising performance. You will not experience any “turbo lag” in this vehicle; just a smooth fast ride once your foot hits the gas pedal. As we expected, we were very pleased with the driving experience the Mazda CX-9 provided us.
We know that Mazda cares about providing its owners with an excellent driving experience and it shows with their dedication by adding the I-Actvisense Safety Technology. This technology alerts you to the dangers while driving through the use of sensors and cameras. Basically, if you start to swerve off-road, it will alert you and gently pull the car back to the lane.
With 27 HW MPG, the handling of this full-size crossover provides a smooth and quiet ride that allows the driver to control the extras while driving. With an easy to read dash with a variety of high-tech tools, you can do many things just from the steering wheel such as answer and make phone calls, lower or raise the volume, and even change the radio stations. My favorite feature is the voice command that allows me to call my family as we are out and about.
SIGNATURE INTERIOR DESIGN
The CX-9 7 passenger comes equipped with four doors and a rear hatch providing plenty of interior room. The front seats are fully adjustable allowing you to move forward, recline, or lower or higher. Passengers in the 2nd row are going to feel like more than just passengers in this vehicle. The redesigned Signature interior offers amenities such as new captain’s chairs and center console for the middle row! Yes, you read that right! Sitting in the 2nd row is going to feel even better in the 2020 Mazda CX-9.
The NAPPA leather seating and genuine Rosewood trim make it quite stylish and comfortable. If you did not know, Rosewood is what is used to make some of the finest instruments in the world. Imagine sitting in a vehicle with that! It seriously gives you a feeling of driving in luxury.
FAMILY-FRIENDLY THINGS TO DO WITHOUT EVEN LEAVING YOUR DRIVEWAY
- Bring out the grill and cornhole and enjoy the beautiful spring weather.
- Can’t go to the park for a picnic? Take the picnic to the tailgate.
- Stargaze in the driveway or watch the sunrise or sunset.
- Enjoy a read aloud in the car. There are plenty of podcasts to enjoy with the kids.
I’m fortunate that I have one of those jobs where I can work from home during our orders, by the ones I love. While I have been home I have noticed what a beautiful mess we are in. It’s not that I am complaining because being a wife and mom is one of my biggest blessings. I’m actually loving life right now in the midst of this quarantine. Our days are not perfect. They’re LONG and filled with messes and arguments, and I wouldn’t change a thing! Even though I can’t get out for some time with the girls, this momma has been able to get in some much needed “me” time in my car! Yep! That’s where I’ve been hanging out when I just need a little time to myself.
Escaping to the driveway to just sit and chill in the 2020 Mazda CX-9 Signature has brought me some serious JOY! What could make this even better? Knowing that Mazda really does care about what is going on in our world right now. They recognize that our health care heroes are working day and night to keep us safe and to take care of those in their midst. As a token of their appreciation, Mazda is urging healthcare officials to take advantage of their Essential Car Care Program which features a free oil change and enhanced vehicle cleaning on most makes and models, not just Mazdas.
