Samurai Rides: Happy New Year with The Mazda CX-9
As I rolled out of 2014 and into 2015 I did it in style with the new Mazda CX-9. This was my first time behind the wheel of a Mazda vehicle and I have to say they made quite the impression on me. When the suburban roads of Westchester to the city streets of NYC the CX-9 handles perfectly. Again I was able to enjoy a spacious interior within a deceptively sleek and streamlined body type.
New York’s winter is in full swing so the heated seats and individual climate controls for the front passengers was tested early and often. This just added to the comfort as I made my way to see family and friends to usher in the new year. The CX-9 also held its own getting me through the first snow day of the snow. It wasn’t blizzard level snowfall but it was enough to require added care on the road. Thankfully the road presented no issue for the CX-9’s handling and maneuverability.
I was navigating a true winter wonderland with Mazda. For those of you interested in more details hit the jump fro more images and video diving into this great vehicle.
