While Canada is famous for its winters, summer here is a beautiful time to get out of the house and onto the open road. Since there are only a few months of truly gorgeous weather, it’s important to seize them!

Planning a road trip is one of the best ways to have fun seeing the country around you. It’s a spontaneous adventure and even a rite of passage. When you’re tearing up the highways, only a few things really matter: quality friends, quality music and food, and having a quality car.

Let’s take a look at the reasons why Mazda’s 2019 lineup features cars which are perfect for your summer road trip.

Space for All the Cargo

The liberating feeling of being on the open road can be diminished if you don’t have space for everything you need. Whether you’re packing sports gear, clothes, or something else, the Mazda3 5-Door Hatchback and the CX-5 Crossover SUV have more than ample space to fit everything you need.

Both vehicles offer a different kind of best-of-both-worlds scenario: the Mazda3 Hatchback is a way to get the cargo space of a much larger vehicle while driving a sedan. Meanwhile, the CX-5 Crossover SUV has all the cargo space and rugged durability of an SUV, but you’ll be amazed at its sporty handling.

New Tech to Keep You Safe

Both the 2019 Mazda3 and CX-5, Mazda’s two most popular vehicles, received substantial upgrades in terms of the new advanced technology that keeps you and everybody on the road safer.

The Mazda3 is now available in Mazda’s famous SKYACTIV technology, features which drivers of the CX-5 are already used to, although SKYACTIV has been refined for 2019 in both vehicles. Each vehicle has 27 sensors which scan the road as much as 200 times a second and uses this information to safely adjust for road conditions.

For example, if the car senses that the road is wet then it automatically supplies more torque to the back wheels as needed. When you’re on your trip you’ll always be driving in harmony with the road, no matter what the conditions. You can opt for a new 2019 Mazda, or be sure to read this if you’re considering getting a model from past years.


Fuelling up to get gas is probably the least fun stop on your road trip, but Mazda vehicles take you further for less. The SKYACTIV AWD technology in the 2019 Mazda3 is particularly evolved to be extra fuel-efficient — the added torque given to adjust for road conditions is only supplied right at the moment it’s needed, so you’re not wasting fuel on giving the car a boost when it isn’t necessary.

Modern Entertainment, Easily

Both the Mazda3 and the CX-5 have redesigned infotainment systems which make it easy to connect your Android or Apple smartphones to the car. You’ll never have to struggle to listen to your music, make calls, or use the navigation features — all things which are indispensable on a road trip.

Whether it’s the Mazda3, the CX-5, or even the classic Miata convertible, Mazda makes a fleet of cars that you’ll love having on the road this summer. Get things started by coming to your friendly Mazda dealership and taking a test drive, before you hit the open road.
