After looking at Honda CR-V, RAV4, Nissan Rouge & Mazda CX-7, the CX-7 is the best value for money compact SUV. It has a solid engine, which gives decent power with a good mileage for an SUV. Acceleration is smooth. The car has a solid build feel. The seats have a high quality cloth material. My daughter spilled carrot juice, but the juice didn't seep in the seats and we were able to wipe it off. The steering has all the possible controls for the sound system. It has got by far the best interior. The dashboard is pretty well designed. It has enough space in the trunk. All in all the SUV is a nice pleasant car to drive in town and across long distances.
Dashboard. By far the best dashboard between all the cars in this segment. Steering wheel Adjustment. Driver seat is very comfortable for long distances. Solid build for the Car. Music System is pretty good. It does have an Ipod connection.
Auto Lights Sensor. The color paint could have been better. Got some scratches in the first car wash. the space in the back seats is a little less. Wish Bluetooth was a standard option in the car, not a big deal.
