2014 Mazda CX-5 is More Akin to the Snowboard Than One Would Think

2014 Mazda CX-5 Hackensack

The legacy of Tom Sims is affirmed by every snowboarder who straps-in to carve a batch of freshly fallen snow. As shown above, Sims took his passion for skiing and skateboarding and blended the two into something innovative and new. That process represents the same line of thinking adopted by Mazda in designing the 2014 CX-5 crossover.


The 2014 Mazda CX-5 in Hackensack gets more miles to the gallon than SUV hybrids.

Local drivers may be interested to learn that New Jersey is part of Sims’ story in creating the very first snowboard prototype. Calling it a “skiboard” at the time, Sims crafted what would come to be known as the snowboard in 1963 as part of a 7th grade woodshop project in Haddonfield, NJ. Calling on the same creative spirit as Sims exhibited, northern New Jersey residents can be part of a similar story with the 2014 Mazda CX-5 in Hackensack.

Just as the snowboard was an innovative blend of skiing and skateboarding, the Mazda CX-5 is a cutting-edge fusion of passenger sedan and SUV crossover qualities. When it comes to the best that passenger cars have to offer, the 2014 Mazda CX-5 in Hackensack delivers a comfort and a fuel economy that truly distinguish the crossover from other SUVs in its category. The CX-5 offers best-in-class rear legroom and a 35-highway-mpg fuel economy rating that humbles its SUV competition, even when they’re configured as hybrid models.


Though he passed in September of 2012, Sims will always be remembered as the father of snowboarding.

The SUV inside the 2014 Mada CX-5 equips the crossover to supplement its passenger space and fuel economy with plenty of room for carry-along cargo. From tall items like gear-packed equipment bundles to long items like skis and snowboards, the CX-5 accommodates everything a driver can throw its way with 65 cubic feet of cargo space.
