2011 Mazda CX-7 s Touring 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)
I drove over 800 miles on a weekend getaway with a rental CX-7 AWD and the least that I can say is that this car is a disappointment. I spent a fortune on gas, the car was averaging a bit less than 18 mpg on the highway and about 12 in city driving.
There was no fun to drive, the turbo has almost no kick.
I was shocked to see that the car didn't have electronic temperature control, a feature that 15,000$ car now have.
For that price range, I would without a doubt buy a Ford Edge that looks way better and that is tens time more fun to drive and has 20x more features than the CX-7. Shame on you Mazda.
Had a USB plug, woo hooo
Electronic temperature control, more data on navigation, better fuel efficiency.
