2014 Mazda CX-5: Cargo Capacity

March 7, 2013

2014 Mazda CX-5

We wasted no time putting the cargo area of our 2013 Mazda CX-5 to work. It was full of the summer tires from our SLS in one direction, and winter tires on the return trip. All four fit easily in the back once the second-row seat backs were lowered.

The grown-up in us also felt this beat the alternative, which was to drop the top on the SLS and stack the tires four high on the front passenger seat.

    Thanks for this blog. I'll be following your updates as I'm considering buying this car later this year. Looks like you're based in a sunny climate. If you get a chance to take the car into packed snow/icy driving conditions, I'd like to get your opinions of its AWD capabilities.
