2011 Mazda CX-7

2011 Mazda CX-7 Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Mazda CX-7

  • Its most immediately endearing quality is the steering response, which is direct, linear, and nicely weighted.

    - Automobile
  • Body roll is all but absent and the car's overall balance is just this side of neutral. The speed-sensitive rack-and-pinion steering is razor sharp, with a solid on-center feel. Brake feel is excellent.

    - Car and Driver
  • Sporty performance and handling, stylish cabin design, solid build quality, eye-catching style.

    - Edmunds.com
  • The CX-7 has a remarkably energetic engine and an equally accommodating transmission, and it's available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

What reviewers liked least about the Mazda CX-7

  • The CX-7's below-the-windowline cargo space is reasonable, but its tapered greenhouse and sloping roofline cut into maximum capacity. If hauling stuff is your priority, you have a herd of more suitable SUVs to pick from.

    - Automobile
  • The shocks and spring rates have been tuned on the firm side, so ride quality is somewhat choppy over uneven surfaces. Road and engine noise are excessive at freeway speed.

    - Car and Driver
  • Mediocre fuel mileage, premium fuel requirement.

Mazda CX-7 Comparisons

  • Toyota's RAV4 is the segment's reigning king, and the Nissan Murano has also filled the space admirably with a mix of handling characteristics and stylish Japanese looks similar to the CX-7. Mazda's entry tops the Murano due to its more stylish interior and much more engaging driving feel.

Best one-liner about the Mazda CX-7

  • Mazda comes on the scene with one of the best-looking, best-performing crossovers I've tested to date....

    - Cars.com
  • Plenty of room, adequate vroom, and yes, there is zoom-zoom. If you still haven't found a midsize crossover SUV that fits your lifestyle, Mazda has come up with the sporty alternative.
