2009 Mazda CX-7 Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I have been a loyal Honda customer for 6 years and had the intention of purchasing a Honda CR-V. The Mazda CX-7 is so much fun to drive, has more room than the CR-V, and is very sleek. The handling is awesome and is just a fantastic car for our growing family, including pets. LOVE this car! When push came to shove, Honda wouldn't come close on the price OR the financing. I think I have been converted to a Mazda driver and may not ever go back to Honda. Everyone who has ridden in this car says it rides like a feather, especially in the back seat. It has a huge space in the rear and is just an all-around great car that is so much fun to drive! The Mazda CX-7 is my new favorite car!
Fun to drive (Zoom Zoom!) Sleek interior, lots of room all-around (front, back, back storage) Love the look and the feel of driving this car. It gets better than the mileage advertised. We travel quite a bit and are getting about 25/26 miles to a gallon, which is great...comparable to the CR-V.
The head rests are a bit "hard" and have little cushion. Otherwise, an amazing car that doesn't need much improvement! A great car that is cheaper than the CR-V and is more fun to drive too! Many have mistaken our white CX-7 for a Lexus SUV because they look so similar.
