**Thank you She Buys Cars for the opportunity to attend this year’s event, and as always all opinions are my own**
Do you remember this commercial?
Cars zipping around corners, speeding across the screen and a little boy whispering, “zoom zoom!” I remember seeing these commercials and thinking, “I want to be excited about my car.”
The truth is, as we grow up we tend to forget the joy in the simple things, the wind in our hair, the sun on our face and the freedom to go anywhere the road and our imagination will take us.
That’s one reason I love going to the Houston Auto show every year! Lots of us are busy working moms, have kids and a myriad of responsibilities that tend to suck the “fun-loving” spirit right out of our daily drives, but seeing so many makes and models of new cars under one roof can really rekindle that fire!
There’s something for everyone at the Houston Auto Show. Need a family car? No worries! Check out the brand new Mazda CX-9.
CX-9 provides a premium driving and passenger experience, courtesy of an award-winning SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine that delivers excellent performance in everyday driving scenarios and an interior cabin that is pleasing to the sight and touch.
- Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) is now standard on Touring trim level (formerly optional on CX-9 Touring)
- The destination possibilities are endless thanks to CX-9’s all-weather capability from its optional predictive i-ACTIV all-wheel drive and class-leading fuel-efficiency
- The 2017 Mazda CX-9 is a mid-size, three-row crossover SUV that caters to families with seating for seven
Really want to get your ZOOM ZOOM on? Look no further than the ridiculously sporty Mazda MX-5 Miata! With a base price of $31,555 it’s a lotta bang for your buck!
Miata. Roadster. MX-5. Whatever you might want to call it, we call it timeless. The 2017 MX-5 continues to be the torchbearer for those who enjoy the journey as much as the destination—especially if there are some curves between Point A and Point B. Perhaps a greater accomplishment than the World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year awards it won in 2016—and becoming the only vehicle ever to win both in the same year—MX-5’s popularity is proof that, amid ever-increasing automation, there’s little that will ever be as satisfying as a perfect heel-toe downshift or a Sunday morning with empty backroads and miles ahead to enjoy.
- All MX-5 Club models receive standard Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
- The introduction of MX-5 RF Retractable Fastback features a power folding hardtop that can open or close in just 13 seconds
- The MX-5 RF Launch Edition, a 1,000-unit trim level exclusively for the U.S., equipped with Auburn Nappa Leather interior, hand-painted black top and Machine Gray Metallic exterior paint
One of the greatest things about visiting the auto show is that no matter what your style or your budget, you can shop to your hearts delight without anyone pressuring you to buy. There are knowledgeable representatives there to answer all your questions and guide you to the perfect car for you! In love with a particular car but not sure that it will fit your family of growing children? Hop in, stretch out, look at everything to ensure it’s the perfect ride for your crew without ever having a salesperson pushing you to make a sale.
I have to tell y’all that there will always be ONE particular car that gets MY motor running and that’s the Ford Mustang. Have mercy! There’s just NOTHING about this baby that I’m not head over heels for!
Although, my heart skipped a beat when I saw this Oscar Mike inspired Jeep! The term Oscar Mike means “On the move” in military speak and OH MY GOODNESS, if I could drive this beauty there’d be no limit on the places I’d go!!! I’m sorry Mustang, but I may have found a new love…Sorry not sorry!
If you didn’t have a chance to check out the Houston Auto Show this year, I highly recommend you make it a MUST DO next year!
