Each Mazda SUV has its own advantages compared to the others, and we'll help you decide which model works best for anything from in-town family driving, to long cross-country road trips or even some off-road adventuring. Visit us from Springfield or Annandale and find the perfect SUV at our Alexandria Mazda dealership.


Mazda CX-3

Our original compact SUV, the Mazda CX-3, is the perfect choice for daily commuters in the Alexandria area who need a smart and sensible Mazda with a little more space and utility than a sedan or hatchback would offer. It's the perfect small SUV for drivers looking for a little more than a standard sedan.


Mazda CX-5 


Even with a larger cabin, the Mazda CX-5 is the kind of smart Mazda SUV that's easy to drive around the city streets of DC, or out on the highways of the Beltway. It allows for a premium setup, with higher trims providing high-end materials, dynamic layers of performance and technology and more.


Mazda CX-9


Our flagship family vehicle is the three-row Mazda CX-9. Updated infotainment and driver aid technology make this the perfect modern-day family vehicle, with the capabilities and amenities you want for daily travels around the capital or northern Virginia, or for those longer road trips you might have planned.

 

What Does Each Mazda CX Model Bring to the Road?

Mazda CX-3

Efficient Driving in a Small SUV: The CX-3's 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine earns 148 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque, but where it really shines is with how efficient it is. You'll earn up to 34 mpg on the highway in the Mazda CX-3, and 29 mpg in the city, when you select a FWD setup near D.C. and in northern Virginia.

Provides Comfort for Solo Commuting: While the CX-3 lacks some of the cargo area and rear-seat passenger space of its larger counterparts, the front seat setup and overall cabin design is smart, roomy in the right places and oriented toward the driver's comfort. Sound-dampening technology makes the CX-3 a quiet and smoother performer around Alexandria, only amplifying its comfortable setup.

Plenty of Available Driver Aids: You actually start off nicely in the base Sport trim of the new CX-3, with standard features including front collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert. In higher trims or as standalone options, you'll add adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, automatic high beams and lane departure warning.

Mazda CX-5

Smooth handling and steering: If there's one thing that can keep drivers away from the SUV class, it's the bulky handling and turning dynamics that can be tough to adjust to. But with the new Mazda CX-5, you'll enjoy an easy way of getting around Alexandria and beyond.

Upscale Cabin Amenities: Mazda is a brand meant for everyday drivers who'd normally shop with typical car budgets. But this brand tends to go above and beyond with the materials used and the tech that outfits the cabins of the likes of the CX-5 and the other SUVs in this lineup. Particularly at the higher trims of the CX-5, the spaciousness up front in the cabin uses premium materials and smart touches to deliver the near-luxury feel you might be looking for.

Quiet and Dynamic Performance From the Turbocharged Engine Upgrade: Though the base four-cylinder in the CX-5 is pretty typical for a midsized SUV, it's the available turbocharged version of the same 2.5-liter four that really impresses. That knocks your performance layers up to 250 horsepower when you use premium fuel, and it combines nicely with the CX-5's clever design that leads to smooth and quiet driving around Alexandria and D.C.

Mazda CX-9

Premium Interior Setup: As we've mentioned with the two smaller SUVs, the Mazda brand has reoriented itself toward delivering near-luxury setups inside. That's certainly the case for the new CX-9, which sees premium materials and design choices throughout the model lineup, most notably in the Signature trim. That focus on interior design is complemented by the quiet driving experience and the retuned suspension system that makes your drive even smoother than before.

Sporty Handling: Along with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder, the latest CX-9 edition gets a tuned up sense of handling, making it sportier and easier to drive around Alexandria and Arlington. The high-end suspension and other unique dynamics for an SUV of this size is a huge boost in a vehicle that's otherwise perfectly set up for your family travels in your new CX-9.

High-End Tech Keeps You Safe and Connected: From the standard Mazda Connect infotainment suite to the available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration apps, the CX-9 provides a wealth of tech for your family travels. For safety, you get a bunch of standard features like blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and low-speed automatic emergency braking. At higher trims, you add adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist, among others.
