Mazda’s engineers could have left well enough alone for their award-winning family vehicle but instead continue to make meaningful improvements to benefit drivers and passengers in all three rows. Among the updates are a refined, retuned suspension that offers a smoother, quieter and more natural ride and greater sound suppression by way of a thicker headliner and thicker floor mats, which aid in ease of conversation and enjoyment.
So you’re in the market for a minivan. And let me guess; you’re debating between the Honda Odyssey and the Chrysler Pacifica. Both are excellent choices but I prefer the Pacifica; it has superior styling, a smarter interior and a plug-in option, how cool is that? I last reviewed the Pacific Hybrid a couple of years ago when it first hit the market but here’s what’s new and what you should now before purchase.
2020 Chrysler Pacifica Red S Edition First Look By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
The ‘S’ can now be colored red at Chrysler. The best minivan on the market has just received an infusion of Dodge attitude. While Toyota claims they have the “swagger wagon” this new for 2020 Pacifica Red S Edition is clearly the winner with soccer dads and kids alike. The S Appearance Package introduced 3 years ago is an option chosen by one out of every three Pacifica owners but Red S is like sneaking into Spencer’s without your parents. For $3,995 it features Rodèo Red soft Nappa leather two-tone seats accented by Light Diesel Grey stitching and piping and a “S” logo on the seatbacks. Silver Metal Brush trim dresses up the instrument panel and door trim. Riding on 20s, there’s a Red S liftgate badge and Black Chrysler wing badges with Velvet Red inserts. Safety features also get a boost and a 20-speaker Harman Kardon stereo system can drown out the screaming. https://testdrivenow.com/2020-chrysler-pacifica-red-s-edition/
The family’s growing. The kids have friends and sports no longer have an off-season. You’re in the market for a 3-row SUV. Sure, the neighbors all have Pilots and Highlanders but you go your own way. And that’s where Mazda fits in with the CX-9; a distinctly unique take on the family mobile.
