Take A Sweet Ride In The Mazda6 i Grand Touring! #DriveMazda @MazdaUSA @DriveShopUSA #Ad

    It's a very rare occasion when I take a road trip or go away without the whole family in tow.  This past month, I had the opportunity to drive to Hershey, Pennsylvania for a media trip all on my own.  Since I usually drive larger cars that can accommodate my family of four, I was beyond thrilled to have the chance to drive the Mazda6 i Grand Touring for my three-hour drive to PA!     My first impression of the Mazda6 i was that it is an incredibly sporty and sleek vehicle.  A redesigned front fascia with signature front bumper and grille means business.  Available brilliant LED headlights and fog lights illuminate the road ahead—and save energy, too. The new available Active Grille Shutter automatically opens and closes in accordance with driving conditions for real-world gains in fuel economy.     It's interior design and technology also made me feel like I was in complete control.  MAZDA CONNECT™ let me control and … [Read more...]

Summer Cruising In The Mazda CX-5! #DriveMazda @MazdaUSA @DriveShopUSA #Ad

    As many of you know, red is absolutely my favorite color.  You can imagine how excited I was to see the 2016 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring parked in front of my driveway in candy apple red!  When I realized that I would have the opportunity to drive such a beautiful car in my favorite color, I knew that we were sure to have a memorable week.  Our drive out to a local resort that weekend would certainly be a classy one.     I have to be completely honest, I have driven other Mazda models in the past and I loved them but I couldn't help feeling like they really outdid themselves when they designed the CX-5.  You really do get the best of both worlds with this vehicle because is is the perfect size to accommodate a family of four like ours but sporty looking enough to not have that whole minivan vibe that I personally like to avoid.     The CX-5 comfortably seats 5 and has a lot of legroom.  My 12 year-old commented about this throughout our entire road trip.  He loved that he was … [Read more...]

Adventures Of A New York City Family In The Mazda CX-9! #DriveSTI @MazdaUSA @DriveSTI #Ad

      It's no secret that we had an extremely rough winter here in New York City.  Aside from our hectic schedules throughout the work week, we also had to maneuver around all the snow and harsh weather to plan creative outings as a family.  The Mazda CX-9 was the perfect fit for our family to be able to spend quality time together this season!  Not to mention its gorgeous leather trim interior which was love at first sight for my husband and I!     Since I have an eleven year-old and a nine year-old, they always want to invite their friends and cousins on outings with the family.  That usually means that, aside from our medium-sized family of four, Hubby and I have to make sure that we have enough room in the car to safely accommodate everyone on road trips.  After all, not having enough space can make us lose serious cool points with the Tweens!     So we all packed in to the Mazda CX-9 and headed around New York for some weekend fun.  If you are familiar with the area … [Read more...]
