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 customize my Mazda’s features, connections and entertainment. Everything was so easy to find and use with the Commander control or a few taps on the large touchscreen.  


    It was incredibly easy to connect my smartphone to the car’s Bluetooth technology as soon as I sat in the driver’s seat.  This really made me feel confident as I focused on the road ahead since I was able to stream phone calls, music, texts, and more with convenient steering wheel-mounted controls and voice command.  Not to mention the comfort of driving while engulfed in the smooth, leather-trimmed upholstery that were so luxurious.


    While I was on the road, I received so many compliments on the Mazda6 i.  Not only did its features make my road trip more enjoyable, but they also reminded me of the importance of making more time for me to treat myself as an individual.  Being on the open road in such a beautiful vehicle made me feel free and alive!

  1. We used to have a Mazda and we loved it. They make some great cars! Ours lasted forever.

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    That does look like a sweet ride. I have always liked the looks of Mazda cars anyway. From what I read, they are just as driver-friendly as they are good-looking!

  3. Gorgeous car! My Dad had a Mazda when I was a kid, but I’ve never really driven one. I’ll have to go for a test drive!

  4. I’m definitely liking the smart features like the active grill shutter. The car’s bluetooth technology seems very advanced!

  5. Gorgeous car!! We are looking into buying a new vehicle as well. I drive a 2006 KIA Sorento and hubby and I are so confused as to whether or not we get a minivan, another SUV or a large sedan. I would love to be able to test drive vehicles so I can finally come down to a decision! We need help!

  6. I love the leather seats that also seem somewhat vented where you sit to keep you a bit cooler. I definitely like that it is a smaller car–hey I’m single!! Of course I love all of the safety features as well. I will be checking the Mazda’s out when I need a new car.

  7. Looks like a really great vehicle. I don’t have a car or drive, so I don’t really know much about cars but I’ve always heard great things about Mazdas. It looks lovely!

  8. What a gorgeous car! I have always like the look of Mazda cars, maybe I will have to go test drive!

  9. I have a Mazda CX-5 and I love it. It has amazing pickup for an SUV and I love that I can connect my pandora to the car.

  10. My first car was a Miata! This one looks as sporty and fun as my original car was! (Although, that white interior would never survive in my world! )

  11. Can you believe that I’ve never driven in a Mazda before? I am loving the look of this but I especially love that Mazda connect. I know when I travel I want to be able to connect no matter where I’m at so this is perfect!

  12. Wow, this does have all the appearances of a sleek, modern car.
    I like its incorporation of tech as well.

  13. What a sweet ride, I know a couple of friends that would love to own a Mazda and upgrade their car. There is something so classic about a Mazda motor!

  14. What a lovely car to test drive. Looks like it has a lot of great features.

  15. Fun! My first car was a Mazda6 and I loved it. They look even better now.

  16. My hubby had one of these – he just traded in for a 3, because he wanted something more sporty! I love them both – especially the bluetooth features!

  17. Megan McCoig says

    Wow this is such a nice car. I love the interior, it really makes it special!

  18. This is such a sporty looking sedan! What a ton of great features, too! Mazda is really stepping up their game!

  19. Nice car! I’m looking for a vehicle for my son, and there are two he’s interested in and I believe this car is one of them.

  20. Now that looks like a sweet ride. I could get used to something like this. Leather seats look awesome!
