Special thanks to Mazda for allowing me to test drive the Mazda 6 Grand Touring for a week in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions (and shenanigans) belong to me.
I spend basically ALL my free time with my kids. Like a.... "cant find an app on my phone that isn't animated or ends with "Kids" because I'm always passing my phone over to the 3 year old" amount of time. Or a... "I sneak and watch all my shows at work because when I'm home I'm only watching Disney Junior" amount of time. So one of my goals for this year is to spend more time doing things that I love that doesn't involve my kids. Don't get me wrong I love them, but i need some time to decompress occasionally without Ryan’s ToysReview ringing in my background.
When I got the opportunity to review the Mazda 6 Grand Touring I immediately fell in love with the interior, and then immediately panicked because it has the most amazing "parchment leather” interior and these little boys are a hot MESS. But I knew I was about to enjoy my time with the car even if I enjoyed it alone (which I did for the most part). The weather was disrespectful for most of the week but every time I got into the Mazda 6 I forgot about what was going on outside.
The inside of the Mazda 6 really captivated me. From the infotainment system, to the 11 BOSE surround sound speakers, I never lacked comfort while inside (lets not even talk about the heated seats and steering wheel cause spring definitely hasn't sprung around these parts). But I think the thing that fascinated me the most with the Mazda 6 is the focus on safety. The Active Driving Display clearly displays your speed, lane departure, and even has street sign technology so you can be aware of your surroundings without ever looking away from the road.
I definitely enjoyed having time to myself and exploring in the Mazda 6 Grand Touring. I'm not a stay at home mom but I definitely stay home A LOT and I'm learning how to separate myself without feeling the guilt. Having a cute car to drive definitely made this week easier. ;)
