* No monetary compensation was made for this post. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I was given this vehicle to test drive for a week to facilitate this review.
The Mazda CX-5 is another FAVORITE car that I test drove. It was perfect for our big sports family. This is a great car for those who do not want to be a “mini-van mom” and do not want a big gas bill like with most SUV’s.
The room in the back was perfect for our baseball/softball bags, water, and more!
The Mazda CX-5 also has great gas mileage! 24 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway! This is great for a CUV model. This is in part due to the Skyactiv technology.
Latch car seat system, anti theft engine immobilizer, blind spot monitoring system, Front and Side air bags, and of course anti lock brakes system. Talk about safety! The Blind Spot Monitoring System was one of my favorites! This vehicle also has the rear view camera as well. Another great safety option when you have kids!
The Mazda CX-5 features 5 passenger seating and a 8 way power driver seat. Did I mention the heated front seats? My kids loved the moon roof of course! What kid wouldn’t love it! My kids also thought it was way cool that you didn’t need a key to start the car, you just press a button! They said it was like we were driving a car from the future or something!
If you are looking for a crossover vehicle with good gas mileage and a high safety rating, try out the new Mazda CX-5 today! It is one I will be considering when we are ready for a new vehicle!
The Lancer has side curtain airbags, advance front dual airbags, drivers side knee airbags, front crumple zones, LATCH system for child seats, Active Stability Control, traction control, and a anti-theft alarm system.
The Lancer gets 23 MPG in the city and 30mpg on the highway! Talk about some great gas mileage! You can save around $1,500 in fuel costs over 5 years compared to the average new vehicle.
This car also has SirusXM Satellite Radio! This means endless choices when you need some music or some talk radio to make the car ride more enjoyable. It is controlled by a 6.1″ Touch Screen and hands free link system with USB port. Did I mention the rear view camera system? This is a favorite feature of mine is cars. I love the safety when backing up while the kids are outside playing. Another great safety feature that Mitsubishi gives you with their Lancer GT.
You also get steering wheel mounted cruise control and audio switches. No more taking your hands off the wheel to set the cruise or to change the station on the radio!
This car was fun to drive for a week! So I highly recommend you head to your nearest Mitsubishi dealership for a test drive!
