Following an update in 2011, the Mazda CX-7 returns for 2012 with no significant changes.
Introduced in 2006, the Mazda CX-7 was Mazda's first foray into the crossover SUV market and was designed on an original platform. Since its debut, the Mazda CX-7 has gained in popularity and competes directly with Honda's CR-V, Toyota's RAV4 and Nissan's Murano. With the choice of two engines and multiple trims, the Mazda CX-7 keeps the Mazda tradition of performance and practicality alive and running. MSRP for the i SV starts at $21,900, with the luxury s Grand Touring beginning at only $31,640.
