This Mazda is the best performance SUV on the market. The power is beyond proper now. Pay for the 2.5L you will smile every time you drive it. Also, the Bose & Sunroof package is a must. My prior car was a 2007 Mazda MX-5 GT, and the CX-5 is way faster. The CX-5 should be on the top of your list.Zoom-Zoom.
I was driving an SRT8 Challenger when I bought one of these for my wife. After driving it 700 miles in a day, realized that I had no back pain, had really enjoyed my drive and got a fuel economy of 32.5 mpg! On cheap gas. i loved my power car but it was low, costly and loud even with the super stereo fitted it was nothing compared to the awsome Bose system in the Mazda. I switched and have enjoyed over 16,000 miles in it, and although small in size my 6 foot 6 inch son fits in without problem.
Engineered and designed almost a perfect vehicle. Everything works perfectly as designed. Couldn't ask for more!
Great car. Good fuel mileage and fun to drive.
For the price you cannot get a better handling or more fun sports car. My son's Porsche 911 is faster but has no more room in it than the MX5 and for 1/3rd the price the MX5 handles as well. Quite an improvement over the British sports cars it was designed after.
Bought this car used from a local dealer with about 15k miles on the odometer. I had a Mazda3 sedan as a rental and really liked the way it drove. Then when I felt the turbo power of the CX-7 I was hooked. This little crossover does everything well. It has ample room for my 2 kids and can fit bikes or camping gear in the back. Best of all the CX-7 has zoom zoom. It is quick, rides and handles well, and gets about 22-24 MPG which is not bad for an SUV.
