Hello Sassy Peeps!
Word on the street is that the Mazda CX-5 is “THE Overachiever” in its class and you know what, I totally agree!! Don’t get me wrong there are some pretty SUPER compact SUV’s on the market, but the nickname placed on this vehicle is PERFECT!
Keep reading to see why I consider this rare beauty to be “The Overachiever“!
Height Adjustable Driver’s Seat
When I purchase a sick pair of heels, I am usually in total love with them before I leave the store, and to be honest, I freak out when they even get a little scuffed. I notice that while driving, the heel on the foot that I use to accelerate with always gets scuffed up really bad due to the pressure and constant friction. Well Mazda to the rescue! The height adjustable driver seats makes it easy to adjust the seat so you won’t scuffs the back of your shoes.
Middle Console Area
The middle console area on this vehicle is EVERYTHING! It is set up so that the stereo system knobs can be easily adjusted while driving. Note: You won’t have to take your eyes off the road when changing the station, adjusting the volume, navigating from screen to screen etc…etc…
I don’t know about you guys, but while my phone is charging I still look at it from time to time or just use it for whatever reason. So having a little slot in the storage console to place the cord is HUGEEE! You guys just don’t know how excited I was when I saw it! I think I just stared at it for a minute or two! LOL!
This might not sound like a big deal because there are always tons of charging ports throughout most new vehicles. However, I am old school and love charging my phone from the cigarette lighter (12V round plugin). I have found that these plugins provide a much faster charge. This type of charger is located inside the middle storage console of this vehicle, and guess what there was a little opening for my cord!!!! YEAAAA!!!! I was so happy that I didn’t have to worry about my cord getting damaged. Kudos Mazda! Kudos!
Exceptional Bose® 9 speaker surround sound system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® 2
If you guys know me at all you know I am certifiable when it comes to an awesome sound system. I have been like this as far back as I can remember. I literally can not go without my BASS! So I have to tell you guys that anything stamped with the Bose® logo is top of the line and makes me swoon. The system in the Mazda CX-5 is magical! LOL!
Active Driving Display
This feature reminds me of a video game. I love seeing the information at a glance. The system is a pop-up display that allows the driver to view important driving information without having to shift their focus away from the road. Stats that can be projected onto the Active Driving Display are:
- Vehicle Speed
- Cruise Control
- Turn-By-Turn Directions
- Distance and Lane Guidance
- Lane Departure Warning System
- Smart City Brake Support
// What I Wore //
- Height adjustable driver’s seat
- Rain Sensing Wipers
- Middle Console
- I am old school and love charging my phone from the cigarette lighter (the round plugin). I have found that the round plugins provide a faster and better charge. This type of charger is located inside the middle storage console of this vehicle, and guess what there was a little opening for my cord!!!! YEAAAA!!!!
- Mazda Connect infotainment system
- Exceptional Bose® 9 speaker surround sound system with Centerpoint® 2 and AudioPilot® 2
- Excellent crash test scores
NEED A LITTLE FIX!
- I found it somewhat difficult to sync my phone with the Bluetooth feature in this vehicle. I found it a little weird, because syncing devices are usually really easy in most Mazda vehicles.
Sassy Peeps! I agree the Mazda CX-5 is a total overachiever? Do you? If so, why would you say so? Inquiring minds what to know.
Thank you Mazda for the fab experience! I love this ride!!!!
