2007 Mazda CX-7 Overview

You've got to like the fact that modern automakers are thinking outside the box, or at least thinking outside the standard automotive design parameters. Case in point: the Mazda CX-7, a curved, muscular SUV that has an admittedly retro look to it, yet still manages to appear completely contemporary. In fact, there's quite a bit of sports car DNA in this crossover SUV, which is not surprising, since design features for the CX-7 were borrowed from both the Mazda Miata and the RX-8 sports car.

The sports-car-in-an-SUV-skin theme continues to the engine of the CX-7. Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that produces a performance-car-like 244 horsepower. A six-speed Sport automatic transmission is standard. Other performance features include independant MacPherson strut suspension, anti-lock brakes, and optional all-wheel drive.

The interior is sporty as well. The three-spoke steering wheel has a sports-car feel, as does the red/blue instrument panel. And while style counts for a lot in the CX-7, it does not sacrifice functionality. A storage space in the center console between the front bucket seats is deep enough to hold a laptop computer, while backseats are roomy and comfortable.

A premium Bose Audio sound system and navigation system are also part of the package. As far as safety is concerned, the CX-7 received a five-star rating in front and side impact crash tests.

Drivers had a lot of positive things to say about the CX-7, but the comment that seems to sum it up best if "value." Overall, the crossover vehicle received a lot of praise from drivers, who liked its power and performance, styling, and interior appointments. On the down side, drivers noted that the ride can be a bit rough, and that fuel can be expensive, since the CX-7 required premium-grade gas.
