2014 Mazda CX-5: Packed for a Road Trip
May 21, 2013
Several weeks back I packed our long-term 2014 Mazda CX-5 to the gills with everything a family of four could use on a weekend adventure in Arizona. Then we drove 350 miles across the California and Arizona deserts to Prescott, Arizona. Because we had bikes, we also had bike gear which filled the cargo hold. However, the CX-5's flexible mesh cargo cover handily stretched to accommodate our oversized load.
Still, we used every inch...
Even the second-row foot wells were filled with snacks. Kids like snacks.
The headrests were fitted with rectangular kid tranquilizers. And it worked. There was peace for hours. Note the Pack N Play collapsible crib secured neatly with a strap to the CX-5's handy folding center seatback. This SUV uses its space very well.
