2012 Mazda CX-7 Review

Never settle when you can have it all. The 2012 CX-7. The CX-7 comes with two fun to drive options. Economize with a fuel-friendly 2.5L engine or satisfy your need for more power with a turbocharged 2.3L engine. And the available Active Torque Split All Wheel Drive system helps give you confidence in all kinds of weather conditions. Inside impeccable texture substance and attention to detail abound. Technology starts with a full-color Multi Information Display that vividly displays vehicle systems audio system and trip computer data. Timely route and travel info from a compact navigation system. And live images from the standard rearview camera when you’re in reverse. It continues with a Blind Spot Monitoring System Bluetooth hands-free phone and so much more. The 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback expands cargo capacity to a generous 58.6 cubic feet. At Mazda we pursue safety as passionately as we do performance. No surprise then that the Mazda CX-7 earned Five Stars—the highest possible rating. The 2012 Mazda CX-7 the Complete Package.
