Is the 2019 Mazda CX-5 or 2019 Mazda CX-9 Right for Me?

When choosing between the 2019 Mazda CX-5 and the 2019 Mazda CX-9, you need to consider your lifestyle. Are you single, part of a couple, or have a family with one or two kids? Do you typically stay close to Fostoria with the occasional trip to Cleveland? Then the 2019 Mazda CX-5 will probably be the better fit for you. It can seat up to five passengers and offers enough cargo space for everyday living and the occasional in-state road trip. 

If you have a larger family that is always on the go with after-school activities and you enjoy going on longer road trips, the 2019 Mazda CX-9 is the way to go thanks to its three rows of seats. Even if you only have two kids with no plans of bringing extra friends, the extra row of seats can be extremely helpful on your next cross-country road trip because you can separate them if there is too much backseat bickering.
