At Steet Ponte Mazda, we make it a policy to accommodate every kind of owner who walks through our doors. That means if you have a special furry friend who always comes along for your daily adventures, we’ll help you discover the best vehicle for them as well! According to a AAA/Kurgo survey, over 50 percent of drivers take their dogs with them at least once a month1, which is why Mazda has created a number of vehicles perfect for pet owners. To see them live, just join us at 5074 Commercial Drive in Yorkville, NY.

2019 Mazda CX-3

The first suggestion on our list is the smallest of Mazda’s beautiful SUVs—the 2019 Mazda CX-3. While you kick back in 41.7 inches of legroom, 52.3 inches of hip room, and 53.5 inches of shoulder room, your pup will enjoy lolling about in the second row, which offers 35.0 inches, 49.0 inches, and 50.4 inches for your legs, hips, and shoulders respectively. You’ll also have 12.4 cubic ft. of space2 behind the second row, or 44.5 cubic ft. of room2 if you decide to put the rear seats down. Thanks to the available leatherette upholstery on the Touring level and the full leather upholstery on the Grand Touring trim, it’ll be easy to clean up any loose fur.

2019 Mazda CX-5

If your dog is particularly sizeable, you might be interested in making the upgrade to the 2019 Mazda CX-5! This crossover bumps up your total interior volume quite a bit, offering you 30.9 cubic ft. of cargo room1 with the rear seatback up and 59.6 cubic ft. of space2 with it folded down. Much like the Mazda CX-3, this ride comes standard with cloth seats that can be upgraded to more of a pet-friendly material. You’ll also be glad to hear that you’ll have standard floor mats to keep things clean. And if you and your canine companion can't wait to make it to Caumsett State Park for a day of fun, you’ll be glad that you have a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine delivering 187 horsepower and 186 lb.-ft. of torque to send you flying towards your destination.

2019 Mazda CX-9

Of course, we have to think about those owners who might have multiple animals! For them, the size, power, and safety of the Mazda CX-9 will be absolutely perfect. With seating for up to seven passengers, you’ll be able to comfortably fit all kinds of friends at the same time! This model offers you three rows of seating for a total of 135.1 cubic ft. of passenger volume. You’ll also have 14.4 cubic ft. of cargo room2 with all the rows up, 38.2 cubic ft. with the third row folded down, and 71.2 cubic ft. with all of the rear rows stowed away. Finally, you'll be delighted to know that you’ll have the i-ACTIVSENSE® safety features available to take care of every precious life housed within the Mazda CX-9’s cabin.

Which Mazda SUV is best for dog owners? If you want to treat man’s best friend the right way, you can’t go wrong with any of the phenomenal vehicles at Steet Ponte Mazda.

Just purchased my beautiful Mazda 3 Fully loaded. Bose system. Car starter. Moon roof!!!! Joel was nothing but professional. Soooo Funny. And catered to all my needs. Matt was new and I was his first sale. Hopefully I didn’t drive him too crazy. Ha! They took the time to explain to me all the features on the car, and made sure I left with a smile on my face. ... Definitely recommend Mazda. Joel. Matt. Best ride ever! And I have owned many cars all my life. This is my favorite! See More
