Be it the Fort Worth Zoo, the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge for making sure the kids get that healthy dose of fresh air, the huge indoor rodeo, or experiencing all the amazing museums or Sundance Square downtown, you want a vehicle that can get you safely from point A to point B in as much comfort as possible.TravelIn the 2016 Mazda CX-9, a three-zone, automatic climate control air-conditioning system comes standard. Passengers in the second row can control their own temperature settings since the controls are on the center storage bin. This means less whining from the back seats that “I’m too hot!” or “I’m too cold!” on long journeys that already have you wanting to pull your hair out.Another feature added for this model is the pair of manual sunshades for the second-row windows. This means nap time does not have to be interrupted by sunrays shining in on your tired and fussy little ones.The 2016 model also weighs 260 pounds less than the previous model, making for a quicker and more fuel-efficient ride. The city mpg is 22 and the highway mpg is 28, which is good news for the money-conscious parent.SeatingThe Mazda CX-9 is a three-row SUV. The 2016 model allows the second-row passenger seat to tilt and slide forward, so the third row is accessible even with a front-facing child seat installed in the second row. The third row now also comes with one top tether anchor on the passenger’s side, so a forward-facing convertible can be installed safely. Easy to use, it makes it that much simpler to bring everyone along when creating amazing family memories.EntertainmentThe Mazda CX-9 comes with two USB charging ports for the second row, meaning children can use their tablets or phones no matter how long they’ve been cooped up in the car. This will definitely cut down on fights over who needs to charge their device first.SafetySafety features for the 2016 Mazda CX-9 include child seat anchors, rear door child safety locks, front, rear, and third-row airbags, dusk sensing headlamps, emergency breaking preparation, a post-collision safety system, stability control, tire pressure monitoring, traction control, four-wheel ABS, emergency braking assist, rear parking sensors, and more. While having a family can be one of the most amazing experiences, having to give up a more sporty or stylish car is something that depresses even the best parent. With the 2016 CX-9, you don’t have to travel feeling like you’re in a bulky, unfashionable vehicle. It has a sleek profile, LED headlights and taillights, and comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels. In addition to all the optional colors to make this car even more stylish, it also uses a four-layer metallic paint with a tinted clear coat to give additional depth. With a base price of $31,520 for the Sport trim, this isn’t a family car to pass up.
