If you’re looking for a car that will make the morning commute easier, you’re in the right place. Today on Theresa’s Reviews, I’m sharing my experience of trying out the 2018 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring AWD in a beautiful Soul Red Crystal Metallic color. With the winter making our drives uncomfortable in the mornings, my family loved that this car made the drive happier for everyone.

Family Friendly Car For A Safe Commute In Winter

This car is a great pick if you have a long commute in the mornings with your children. With excellent safety features, you can be more confident that you are making safe decisions when driving in rush hour traffic. Even getting the car seats anchored in was simple to do.

Other convenient safety features were the front parking sensors and rear parking sensors. When you drive on the busy interstate during the busiest time of day, the blind spot monitoring is crucial. Not only does the blind spot monitoring help you know when you shouldn’t switch lanes, but other drivers can also see it light up and know they should move.

For the safest driving experience, this car helps you pay attention to how you are driving. As you drive, a small display on the front window shows your speed and the speed limit. You can adjust the hight and brightness display in the settings.

The Mazda CX-9 can even fit up to seven people, or you can fold down the back seats for more space.

While safety is the most important consideration when you’re picking out a family car, comfort also matters. Since I drive in the bitterly cold Northeastern weather, it was exciting this car offers a warm driving experience. With comfortable, heated front seats, the driver and the passenger can quickly get warm. Your children can appreciate the second row heated seats. Mine enjoyed being able to control the heat!

Two more helpful features are the windshield wiper de-icer and the heated power windows. If you’re driving in freezing conditions, these are a must-haves for your vehicle.

My favorite feature was the heated steering wheel. When I misplace my gloves in the morning or forget to start my car for a few minutes before leaving, this makes the drive much more comfortable.

While this car offers a safe and comfortable experience, it has fun features too! My favorite was the sports mode, which gave the car a sportier feel as you drive it. I also liked the Bose speakers (especially with the XM radio) and push button engine start
