2010 Mazda CX-7 s Touring 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
Drove the Honda CR-V, nice drive train but too small. The Subaru Forester has the best interior quality but needs another gear. The Mitsubishi Outlander tested fine except for the (cheap) Goodyear tires which gave every Outlander the shakes,the interior quality and design is a nightmare, other than that loved the power-train. The Ford Edge is way over priced and the Chevy Equinox is expensive and plain ugly. None pleased me for the money until we tested the CX-7 which has the looks, drive-train with the turbo and 6 speed is very smooth and feels like a strong six. The interior is nice and the exterior is very nice also. The Mazda for the money was best, finally after three years of looking
Exterior looks great with a very nice interior layout and design. Good quality inside and out. For the money beats the competition and wish the rest would get their act together as the Mazda has the complete package.
