That one time I fell in love with the Mazada 6 Grand Touring
|This post is in partnership with Mazda 6 Grand Touring.|
I was asked to test drive the new 2017 Mazda 6 Grand Touring. I had it for a week, but knew that it was special upon first site.
I drive a BMW sedan, and this car goes head-to-head with that luxury car when comes to luxury. I was given the new color for 2017 - machine gray metallic. It had 19-inch alloy wheels and, standard keyless entry.
Once inside, the car was outfitted with parchment nappa leather.
It had all of the features, including a back-up camera and 7-inch touch screen display. It’s like the motherboard - it is where you go for navigation, music and more. There was an electric parking brake - something that I’ve never seen before!
Of course, there were heated seats, but that feature was even in the back seat. But, probably my favorite feature was the active driving display. All of your trip details pop up on this transparent display at your eye lev. It is just one of the many safety features this car is geared with - like lane departure warning. (Like I said, the list can go on and on.)
But, let me tell you what I really enjoy!
It’s that all of this technology comes standard with this car and it makes your drive worry free. All you feel is the smooth ride.
For this ride, Mazda is letting me donate $25 to a charity of choice. Every little bit counts, right?
This is part of their #MazdaDrive4Good campaign.
