Everyone has preferences for choosing their favourite music or books, and driving a car is no different. You can find Uber drivers in just about every vehicle, but the Mazda3 and the CX-5 Crossover SUV are among the most popular.

Both vehicles have their own attitude, posture and personality, but they share some Mazda features. Let’s look at some of the common features in these two vehicles you’ll find at Yorkdale Dufferin Mazda in Toronto to see what makes them so much fun to drive.

i-Active AWD

To have fun behind the wheel, you need to have control on the road. Nothing is less enjoyable than slippage when you encounter rain or ice. Both the Mazda3 and the CX-5 are available with Mazda’s patented i-Activ AWD system, which uses sensors around the vehicle to scan the road to monitor conditions.

If the vehicle senses that a back wheel needs more torque due to slippage, it’ll get sent automatically at just the right time to consume less fuel. Uber and Lyft drivers appreciate any feature that lets them drive safely, and saves them money at the pump.

Smart, Modern, and Safe

Modern drivers have high expectations for what the tech inside their vehicles are supposed to do, and this is one place Mazda excels. The infotainment centres in both vehicles were redesigned so that syncing Android and Apple phones is easy.

The hands-free voice-command system and generously-sized touchscreen are also more responsive than in previous models so that drivers can get full and safe use of out of their phone while behind the wheel.

Both the CX-5 and Mazda3 come with a slew of advanced safety features, which make driving safer for everyone on the road and also more comfortable and less stressful. Sensors throughout the vehicle alert you to the presence of other nearby cars and objects.

If there’s a risk of a collision, the vehicle will alert the driver and brace for a stop. If no corrective action is taken, the brakes will be applied automatically. Technology that keeps everyone safe and even entertained is vital, and Mazda delivers.

Silence and Beautiful Sound

One understated feature of the 2020 Mazda3 is it has the quietest cabin ever offered by Mazda. Muted outdoor noises will complement the Bose speakers, available in both the Mazda3 and the CX-5.

With speakers located strategically throughout the vehicle for optimal acoustics, you’ll love how your favourite music sounds.
