The CX-7 has responsive handling and secure cornering, but the ride is so-so. Mid-range power is ample, but there is a lag at low revs. Fuel economy is not particularly good. The interior is well put together, but the rear seat is not very roomy and is too low.

Sensible choice, great value by Midwest Road Tripper on 07/01/2012. Trim: 2012 Mazda CX-7 i Sport, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Bought this after reading lots of reviews and taking test drives of alternatives. Price played a role, with about $4K off of msrp. Wanted an good dog hauler that would also be good for a road trip. Got the i 2.5 engine for better milage and reliability, and find the performance is plenty good, though I can hear the engine working during hard accelleratioin. Otherwise, a quiet, tight interior. Visability from drivers seat surprisingly good. Averaging 25.5 actual calculated mpg in mixed city/highway driving, which is about 1 mpg less than the trip computer says, but still, pretty good. On interstate drivng, getting 30 mpg. NIce electronic goodies such as bluetooth and rear camera.
Cons: I prefer cloth interiors, but wish I had not gotten black: my problem, not Mazda. Wish the sun roof was bigger. We are only 1600 miles in, but no problems.
Overall review: Overall, very pleased with this purchase. We own our cars for a long time, so researched carefully and believe this one will still be there ten years out.
