Best Mazda for Snowy Roads

Can you believe that some parts of the world never see snow? It can be both a blessing and a curse, as we experienced in January 2016, for those who live in such areas. They lose out on the beautiful sight of a world covered in white on a frosty winter morning; on the other hand, they never have to worry about driving over the stuff.

Some things are universally good when it comes to driving in snow—all-wheel-drive, ground clearance, or winter tires, for instance. But not all of those things are equal across all cars. Fortunately, we offer a few great vehicle choices at Mazda of Gastonia for those who seek a proper snow-driving experience.

Additionally, you’ll find that both the following vehicles provide some of the best safety ratings in the market, so that even if things do somehow get out of hand out there, you can still count on the quality of Mazda engineering to keep you safe and sound!

The best Mazda for snowy Roads, especially the icy ones we often get here in Charlotte are:

Mazda CX-5

The undisputed king of the snow in our lineup, the Mazda CX-5 is widely regarded as one of the best crossovers in the market, period. Its Active Torque Split All-Wheel-Drive system instantly adjusts power between the front and rear axles to better distribute power based on traction while the SKYACTIV engine keeps everything fuel-sipping smooth.

Mazda CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 is a phenomenal people-mover. Its suspension is finely tuned to deliver the best possible ride quality while its advanced all-wheel-drive system helps you stay in control not just in snow but also in rain and rugged terrain. Then there’s the 273-hp V6 engine under the hood—it might as well be a steep hill covered in snow and the CX-9 would just scoff at it.
