When you plan to drive with your dog, it pays to find a car that’s spacious, low, and provides a smooth ride. Check out these Mazda vehicles for pet owners, all of which have been applauded for being safe and comfortable for both animals and their owners.
If your small family includes a single pup, the Mazda CX-3 might be the perfect fit. This subcompact crossover is small and easy to maneuver and park, making it ideal for urban settings.
You can also fold the back seats down to give your dog 44.5 cubic feet to stretch out in. Another bonus in this model is the standard rear-heating ducts and air conditioning, which will help keep your dog comfortable in any season.
The Mazda CX-5 is a slightly larger crossover with five spacious seats. If you plan to travel with more than one dog, or with children as well, this is a great fit. Even with the rear seats up and the kids buckled in, there’s still 30.9 cubic feet of space for your furry friend behind the seats.
The Mazda CX-5 has low height, so it will be easy for dogs to enter and exit the vehicle. When you’re on the road, your pets will have an easier time relaxing, thanks to a smooth and quiet ride.
With seven seats and a maximum of 72.1 cubic feet of cargo space, the Mazda CX-9 is the most spacious of the canine-friendly Mazda models. There’s plenty of room to store one or two crates, while still having room for human passengers.
This model also has many of the features that will keep dogs comfortable, like a smooth ride, tri-zone climate control, and available heated second-row seats.
