Best car for man’s best friend
The Mazda CX-5 is named 'Best Car for Dog Owners', while the Mazda MX-5 RF is the 'Most Loved Car' in the Auto Trader Awards (UK) 2019.
Unlike other automotive awards which rely on editorial judging panels, the Auto Trader titles are decided by 63,000 real car owners who are asked to rate their cars across 16 key criteria, as well as overall satisfaction.
Walking away with the 'Best Car for Dog Owners' title, the Mazda CX-5 ticked the boxes of canine-loving car drivers thanks to its combination of practicality and quality. Owners praised the Mazda SUV for cabin space, safety and how good it is to drive.
Commenting on the awards, Erin Baker, Auto Trader’s Editorial Director said: “Mazda should be particularly proud taking home two awards. Lots of us have emotional connections with cars; they’re more than just a way of getting from A to B. The Mazda MX-5 RF is loved for a whole host of reasons, not least because of the way it drives and how it looks. While for dog owners, space and how easy it is to make use of that space is crucial and owners were quick to point out the CX-5’s comfort.”
Collecting the Auto Trader Awards, Mazda Motors UK Managing Director, Jeremy Thomson said: “It’s always great to collect awards but they are particularly pleasing when they are a result of recognition from our customers. I’m delighted that the CX-5‘s excellent family car credentials extend to the furry friends at the heart of many households."
