What Are the Cargo-Hauling Advantages of the Mazda CX-5?

The rear bench seat split into three sections in a 40/20/40 configuration so that you can easily adjust your cargo area to match your specific cargo- and passenger-hauling needs in a pinch. The advantage is the ability to seat anywhere from two to five passengers while maximizing your available cargo space. Unlike most crossovers, this layout gives you the option to fold down the middle section to accommodate long, narrow items like skis and snowboards.
