The Mazda brand has a busy schedule over the next few months, with a calendar that includes the Houston Auto Show, Portland International Auto Show, and Chicago Auto Show. And at every event, you’re sure to see a superlative roster of Mazda vehicles, including two award-winning SUVs: the 2018 Mazda CX-5 and the 2018 Mazda CX-9.
Any award is a good award, but it’s especially sweet when not one, but two of your brand’s models are recognized by Car and Driver magazine. Both of the aforementioned vehicles earned a place on the magazine’s prestigious “10Best Trucks and SUVs for 2018” list, with the Mazda CX-9 winning its second consecutive Best Mid-Size SUV award and the Mazda CX-5 notching its first Best Compact SUV acknowledgement.
Competition is always fierce for these awards, and both Mazda vehicles navigated a battery of tests covering every key automotive category: design, craftsmanship, chassis dynamics, safety, fuel efficiency, and refinement.
The editors at Car and Driver had great things to say about each SUV. Regarding the 2018 Mazda CX-5, “From the first turn of the wheel, it’s evident that the Mazda CX-5 is something different.” Meanwhile, the 2018 Mazda CX-9 was described as a “sophisticated standout that sets the benchmark for how a three-row SUV should satisfy its driver.”
Visit South Tacoma Mazda, test drive a 2018 Mazda CX-5 near Gig Harbor, WA, and you’ll be introduced to several terrific additions, including standard engine cylinder-deactivation for enhanced gas mileage, and the latest Smart City Brake Support system. The 2018 Mazda CX-9 also gets a host of upgrades: enhanced noise reduction, standard G-Vectoring Control performance enhancement, front parking sensors, and much more.
