Is the 2020 Mazda CX-5 Good for Long Distance Road Trips?

Why the 2020 Mazda CX-5 Is Great for Road Trips

Whether it be for hitting the ski slopes or golf course at Lake Tahoe or readying the family for a visit to the Grand Canyon, there are tons of attractions to be found in the western US.  But many attractions are hours from Carlsbad and you may need something dependable to get you there. At Bob Baker Mazda, we wanted to offer up the 2020 Mazda CX-5 model as an option on your list before you take those trips in the spring and summer months.



Safety Comes First with the 2020 Mazda CX-5

One major piece to the traveling puzzle is in keeping you and your passengers safe.  Luckily, all 2020 Mazda CX-5 models come with standard i-ACTIVSENSE® technology that includes major safety features that were previously only available at higher trim levels. One feature in the package is the Mazda Radar Cruise Control with Stop & Go function, which helps you maintain speed and proper distance between you and the vehicle in front of you, even if they come to a complete stop.

All-Wheel Drive and Gas Mileage a Plus

If you plan on hitting rougher roads along your journey, having
an all-wheel drive is a good choice to have. 
With 2020 Mazda CX-5 models, you have the option to add i-ACTIV AWD® to
any trim level.  This way, if you’re on a
tighter budget, you can still add versatility to the base level CX-5 Sport without
sacrificing much from your wallet. On top of that, its SKYACTIV®-G 2.5L 4-cylinder
engine receives an impressive estimated 28 combined miles per gallon.  Add the 14.8-gallon tank into the mix and you
could drive all the way to the following places without filling up:

  • San Jose, CA
  • Yosemite Valley, CA
  • Phoenix, AZ
  • Las Vegas, NV
  • Lake Mead National Recreation Area, NV

The 2020 Mazda CX-5 Is a Great Road Trip Option

Overall, the 2020 Mazda CX-5 is a great option to choose if you’re looking for a long-distance vehicle that can stand up to hours of performance.  But before you leave, make sure to stop into Bob Baker Mazda and schedule an appointment to get your vehicle serviced so it’s ready to go!
