Last week was an interesting one. At least one that was interesting compared to the previous weeeks filled with natural disasters around the world. Thankfully we made it past the devastation from Harvey and have been gradually getting back to normal. We drove to San Antonio and back on the same day... twice within a 2 day span. I love driving, but after driving on some somewhat boring roads and lack of scenic sights, you get tired a little faster than say a nice scenic drive.

No complaining though, it's not about that today! We drove the 2018 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring AWD and had a great time together. Back in March, in case you missed it, we drove the 2016 Mazda CX-5 in San Diego, and were able to see the changes first hand. This is a really nice small crossover SUV with the ability to deliver a sporty driving experience. For a small SUV there is still a decent amount of cargo space. 31 cu. ft. with the seats up and 60 cu. ft. with the seats folded down in fact. Powering the drive is the same 2.5L SkyActiv engine pushing out 187 horsepower at 6,000 RPM and 185 lb. ft. of torque at 4,000 RPM.

There will be a review coming up soon but for now you can see our vlog and adventures below!

Do you enjoy driving? If so, what makes it enjoyable?
