 Mazda - Zoom Zoom Mazda - legacylad
In a previous post I acquired a Vitara for my 6 week Spanish road trip…ferry to Santander, explored Basque Country, joined friends for a glorious week walking in the Spanish Pyrenees ( based in Vielha) then C Blanca and and off the beaten track return to Santander.
2019 1.4 Boosterjet SZ5 of the last pre mild hybrids. Great all round visibility, swallowed my camping gear, lovely turquoise colour, 52mpg overall.
Appreciate they are super reliable, go well in a lightweight body with 140 horse, but I can’t get used to the ( durable) cheap interior, light steering ( tyre pressures are fine) and above all high speed motorway manners over a long distance and several hours ( yes I should drive slower).

My head has been turned by a CX30 in Soul Red.
Much reduced all round viz, less interior space ( tuff luck rear seat passengers) but all the reviews rate it very highly, nicer cabin ambience, lovely gear change, more of a drivers car.

I’m trying very hard not to take the 186bhp version for a test drive. Neither car is four wheel drive, and my mechanic pal tells me the Vitara is a beauty when he had it up on the ramps. Even so…and I’ve fitted new Continentals, recently serviced with pads, bought a space saver kit. Madness.
