2008 Mazda CX-7 Sport 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I was looking for a great value crossover vehicle. I was eyeing the Audi Q5 but it won't come out until late 2009. So I shopped around and compared different makes. The CX7 by far is the closest to the Audi specs. I got the sport version (no leather seats & moonroof).
CVT, turbo, Bose stereo system. I also love the color (liquid platinum), very unique. As you know here in Los Angeles, the most popular colors are silver, gray and black.
Interior trims- rear trims are plastic. No external temperature indicator for sport & touring models. Front grilles will look better if they are chrome.
