New Inventory


The parenting experts from Parents magazine and the automotive whiz- just announced the all-new 2017 Mazda CX-5 as their Best Midsize Crossover for Families. Coming up right at the top of the 10 Best Family Cars of 2017 list, this extravagantly popular model was picked, thanks to a combination of flexible space, high-end safety, and family-friendly features.

Designed to Adapt

The needs of the average family can change in a heartbeat, so isn’t it wonderful that the Mazda CX-5 can shift at the speed of your lifestyle? If you need all hands on deck, its spacious five-passenger seating lets everyone sit comfortably. If you need to help a kid to college or carry a bike in the back, flip the rear seats to turn 30.9 cubic feet of standard cargo space into an available 59.6 cubic feet.

With easy-release 40/20/40–split fold-down rear seatbacks, you can also slip longer items through the center while still transporting two rear passengers. Even the rear doors have been designed to open wider for effortless loading and unloading of child-seats.

Family-Focused Features

The latest Mazda CX-5 boasts new sound-deadening materials, so younger children can nap untroubled by outside noise. Available heated rear seats ensure comfort for all, and there are USB ports in both the front and rear center armrests to ensure that older children can stay connected to their personal devices. We all understand what a lifesaver that can be during longer journeys. Whether you’re carrying one of your kids or festooned with shopping, a new power liftgate makes loading easy, and an Advanced Keyless Entry system lets you leap inside without having to fish for your keys.

Peace of Mind

The Mazda CX-5 irons out those little inconveniences that can combine to put a real downer on your day, but being named the Best Midsize Crossover for Families takes more than a few nifty features. The bottom line is always safety, so it should come as no surprise to learn that the Mazda CX-5 makes the latest and greatest systems available, including:

  • Traffic Sign Recognition

  • Mazda Radar Cruise Control

  • Adaptive Front Lighting

  • High Beam Control

  • Lane Departure Warning

  • Lane Keep Assist
