Holiday Fun In The 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring!

Hey All!

Over the holidays the amazing folks at Mazda were kind enough to partner with us by lending us amazing 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring 5-door to take our Christmas holiday road trip in. We went away to northern California for the holidays to visit family and had an amazing experience driving this car. It was so much fun to drive and it made the ride so much more comfortable. It’s a very long drive to northern California and there is nothing worse than being uncomfortable the entire way there. Thankfully we had this car to make the whole trip seem like a breeze.

We filled the car with our luggage, holiday cookies, and gifts to bring to our family and friends.

We were off and of course we listened to holiday music the entire trip. Thankfully we had SiriusXM satellite radio, which had some amazing holiday music stations. My favorite was CH. 70 Holly radio! The car also featured MAZDA CONNECT™, which allows you to have a host of entertainment and information options. All you have to do is pair your smartphone with the Mazda3 via Bluetooth® to stream your favorite content. MAZDA CONNECT™ makes staying informed and entertained effortless. Everything is easily controlled with the Commander control on the center console or via the 7” full-color touch-screen.

It also had a usb port to plug my phone in and dual side air conditioning controls.

It also had seat warmers, which I loved with a passion! It was very cold when we left for our road trip. I turned on my seat warmer and felt toasty warm the entire way!

As you can see the car fit my massive luggage…

And a bunch of gifts we got to bring home easily!

The car is great on gas too! You can get the car in your choice of manual or automatic transmission powered by spirited 2.0-liter or 2.5-liter SKYACTIV® G gasoline engine, with the 2.5-liter offering 184 horsepower and 185 lb-ft of torque.

My hubby loved the card just as much as I did. Too bad he couldn’t drive it! He wanted to, but it was only mine to drive!

We had an amazing time in this car and we couldn’t have done our road trip with out it! I also love that it was the perfect festive shade of Santa red!

Thanks to Mazda for making our holiday season a little more bright and a lot more fun with the 2018 Mazda3 Grand Touring 5-door!
