2010 Mazda CX-7 s Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
The car looks OK from the exterior. The interior, solid handling and options sold me. Car is loaded with great options (back up camera, bluetooth, satellite radio, 6-CD changer, nice leather, AWD, steering wheel mounted controls) all for just under 30K. Better handling and less $$ than the Acura RDX which I also considered. I live in a relatively hilly area and so far I am averaging less than 16 MPG in city driving after my first 3 tanks of gas. I hope this improves as the car breaks in.
Interior is very nice. Seats are very comfortable and the layout of the controls is nice.
So far the gas mileage is awful. My wife's 2005 Volvo XC90 gets better mileage.
