2008 Mazda CX-7 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
You can not find a performance CUV that gives you more equipment for the price. The only car that compares in performance is the Acura RDX, and it costs $10,000 more when equipped the same. Love the look of the leather seats. Navigation system is well placed and is easy to use. The car is very fast when you get the RPMs up. Have had the car 3 months and it is flawless. Fuel economy has been as low as 15 and as high as 21. I have started using 87 octane and it seems to perform "OK". The HID headlights are wonderful and the heated seats are sure nice in the winter. If you want a CUV that handles like it is on rails, this is the vehicle for you.
Smart Key, navigation, and the easy flip down back seats.
I personally would prefer a 6 cylinder engine with low end torque. A car this nice must have blue-tooth available. Power passenger seats should come with the heated seat option.
