At first glance, Mazda CX-7 does not have any drawbacks: it is equipped with a perfectly tuned suspension, engine capacity of 238 hp, good design, spacious interior. But when you start to drive this car, you know: it consumes a little too much of fuel. Even with a quiet ride the 2.3-liter turbo engine requires 15 liters per 100 km, and if you now and then press the gas pedal, then this number turns closer to 18-20 liters! And it scared away many buyers from Mazda CX-7, as it makes this car pretty costly.

Now in majority of markets Mazda CX-7 is available also with an atmospheric engine with capacity of 2.5 liters (previously this power unit was available only in the U.S.). Specifications ofCX-7 with 2.5 looks decent: 163 hp, automatic transmission, quite realistic price. The ride of the car is now smoother and more responsive. So what can we say, it is an interesting car, but not the best in CX family.
