Mazda CX-5 Earns Spot on Parents Magazine and’s ‘10 Best Family Cars of 2017’ List

2017 Mazda CX-5

Who said have kid-compatible cars have to be boring? If you’re looking for something that’s both fun-to-drive and family-friendly, the Mazda CX-5 is sure to exceed your expectations!

In fact, thanks to its combination of sporty performance, innovative safety technology, family-oriented features and great overall value, the 2017 model was recently chosen as a “Best Midsize Crossover” on Parents Magazine and’s “10 Best Family Cars” list.

“For 2017, we completely redesigned the CX-5 and made more family-friendly improvements,” said Tetsu Nakazawa, Mazda North American Operations vehicle line manager for the CX-5. “We even engineered the rear doors to open wider from the previous model year to allow for easier child-seat loading and unloading.”

In addition to offering lots of backseat space, the Mazda CX-5 comes with plenty of small-item storage, an easy-to-use LATCH system and 30.9 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the back row. Entertainment features like hands-free Bluetooth, HD radio, USB audio inputs and a 7-inch touchscreen with MAZDA CONNECT are also standard.

According to Parents Magazine, the crossover’s “precise steering and handling” are sure to elevate driver comfort and confidence, while standard safety features like antilock brakes, stability and traction control, rollover protection and a rearview camera encourage peace-of-mind at every turn. More advanced driver-assist technology—automatic high beams, rain-sensing windshield wipers, lane departure warning and emergency brake support—can also be added to select models through the i-Activesense package.
