15 Things That Will Make Driving More Enjoyable

For many of us, driving a car is part of our daily lives. That’s why it’s important to make the journey as enjoyable as possible. Whether you drive a new or used Mazda or another car entirely, being behind the wheel shouldn’t be a bore. Here are 15 fool proof solutions to make driving in any car more enjoyable.

1.Phone Holders

Not only are phone holders convenient, but they are also safer. Phone holders provide a safe way to accept phone calls and follow directions on your phone. From grip strips to magnetic holders, car vent mounts, and windscreen mounts, the possibilities are endless. There is a huge range of phone holders available out there, so all you have to do is pick the best fit.

2.Leak Proof Mugs

For all the tea and coffee lovers, there is a way for you to still enjoy those all-important drinks! With a leak proof mug you can have your beverages on the go without worrying about spillages. Especially if you have just purchased a new Mazda car, the last thing you want is spillage stains.

3.Hand Sanitiser

If coronavirus has taught us one thing, it’s that we touch our faces far more often than we realise. Particularly when stopping off at local services or petrol stations, it’s good to have some hand sanitiser on hand. This will minimise the chance of you picking up any bacteria from surfaces touched or bringing it home with you.

4.Plug-in Scented Diffuser

Plug-in scented diffusers remove the smells which can build up in your car over time and disperse a constant fresh scent into your car. Car air fresheners will also do the trick, but scented diffusers offer the added benefit of aromatherapy. Certain essential oils are proven to reduce stress and anxiety, which can help on those long drives home from work.


Nothing beats some good music or entertainment to listen to whilst driving. Most new cars will come with infotainment, so you no longer have to worry about CDs and cassettes. At our Mazda dealership, we have a variety of models on display which will have this feature. Take a look at the new Mazda CX-30, Mazda MX-5 and Mazda6 to name a few.

6.Portable Heating Stove

As much as it’s tempting to eat all the food you bought for your journey in one go, it’s not the safest option when driving. If you want to enjoy your food hot once you arrive at a destination, a portable heating stove or thermoflask is the perfect solution. It will keep your food warm, without creating a hazard.

7. Seat Back Protectors

If you have children, you’ll thank us later for this tip. Seat back protectors cover the back of your car seats and keep them protected. You can sit back and relax, knowing that the back of your seats won’t get tarnished by muddy feet.

8.Regular Car Maintenance

It might seem obvious, but ensuring your car is regularly maintained will make your driving experience more enjoyable. Before long journeys, it is always wise to get your car serviced and check for any potential issues which could occur. Book a car service online at our Mazda dealership.

9.Heated Steering Wheel Cover

For those chilly winter months. Heated steering wheel covers will make your driving experience more comfortable and make cold mornings easier.

10.Panoramic Rear-View Mirror

Investing in a panoramic rear-view mirror will enable you to get full coverage of what is going on behind you to make blind spots visible. Talk to our Mazda dealership today, for advice on where to get the best panoramic rear-view mirror for your car. We can also advise you on our range of new Mazda accessories available for your model.

11.Portable Jump Starter

For when the unexpected occurs a portable jump starter can be priceless; it saves you the hassle of finding a recovery service when you are in a location that is not close to home.

12.Tissue Dispenser

For those rotten colds in the winter months or hay fever in spring and summer, a tissue dispenser can be very helpful when you’re focusing on driving to your destination. Pop one in between the front car seats, or even handier in the door pocket for easy reach.


Let’s be honest, no one likes a backseat driver and attempting to follow road signs might leave you in the middle of nowhere. Although it can be more expensive to buy a GPS, it is easy to set up and has more navigation features than a phone. The other alternative is to buy a car with a built-in GPS for added amenity. New Mazda Cars and some of the Mazda used cars at our Mazda dealership, have this feature built-in.

14.Car Seat Head Rest Pillow

Why not enjoy one of the finer things in life? Well, a car seat headrest that is. Keeping a good posture when driving is important, but so is having a comfortable rest from driving. Having a car seat headrest pillow will allow you to comfortably switch off for as long as you need when stationary.

15.A Clean Car

Straightforward and easy. If clutter is the kind of thing which stresses you out, then decluttering is sure to make your driving is enjoyable!
