Mazda5 Grand Touring Wrap UP!
I had the ultimate pleasure of driving a Mazda5 Grand Touring to Yosemite. The Mazda5 is a true delight to drive!! The car drives smoothly! The handling is amazing. It drives like a small car with all the features of a large family car. The greatest feature for me? 25.5 miles per gallon MOUNTAIN driving!! That’s OUTSTANDING!! I love the amount of room in this car!! 3 rows of seating!! We took the Mazda5 on our day trips, 4 adults and a toddler in a carseat and still room in the back for picnic lunch, stroller and day packs! More to love:Sunroof. Double Sliding Doors (the greatest invention ever!!) EASY…
Yosemite! The perfect place to camp!
Yosemite in May is spectacular!! I wanted to share some of my pictures! We drove the Mazda5 packed to the gills! Traveling with a two year old means we took a LOT more than last years camping trip! Diane, you asked if I meant camping as in ……. sleeping bag…. tent…. yup!! We do cheat a little and use air mattresses. Let me tell you what!! I was so thankful to DH for the new sleeping bag he bought me for Mother’s Day!! I was toasty warm!! It was FREEZING at night!! Camping with a toddler also means you have to ignore the dirt……… a LOT of dirt! I want…
Mazda5 Grand Touring and Yosemite
Driving to Yosemite in the Mazda5 was a dream!! The car hugs the road. Hauls a ton of camping supplies. Has a ton of added amenities, hook up for your iPad or iPhone. SWEET!!! 2 charging ports. One in the very back of the Mazda5. The charging port in the back was really HANDY when I wasn’t driving I could still charge my phone. The Mazda5 Grand Touring has hidden compartments under the middle row of seats. Lift up the seat cushion and there is room for a purse, iPad and phone. (On each side!) Note to self…. be sure and empty the compartment before you install the babies car…
Mazda5 Grand Touring and Yosemite!!
The Mazda5 is an amazing vehicle for mountain camping!! So much ROOM!!! Three rows of seating. Comfortable seating. I sat in all 3 rows and was totally comfortable. The seats split in the third row so you can comfortably take 4 adults, a carseat, picnic lunch AND add a stroller and no one is cramped!! Each seat has a cup holder too for added convenience.The very back of the Mazda5 has a charging port and extra storage pockets. Deep pockets!! Since I mentioned carseat I want to point out the easy EASY EASY to attach the tether of the car seat. HOLY MOLY!! The middle…
Mazda5 Grand Touring is great for camping!!
I had the GREAT pleasure of driving a Mazda5 to Yosemite for a week. HOLY MOLY!!! First, for mountain driving I have to say this Mazda5 ROCKS!!! Driving up a MOUNTAIN and I averaged 25.5 miles per gallon!! I am so relaxed and rejuvenated from my trip!! Look at that view!! Wouldn’t you be too? Check back this week for more information and photo’s of the Mazda5! Disclosure I received a complimentary week driving the Mazda5 for the purpose of my review. (They aren’t letting me keep this one either I checked AGAIN!!) No other compensation was provided. The opinions are mine and 100% honest. I have not been influenced in any way.

I am headed to Yosemite for a week long camping trip!! I’ll be camping with my daughter Selena, her finance Dan, Dan’s mom Lynn and two year old Alice.One wonderful, peaceful, rejuvenating week.
