The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
MINI legitimizes the crossover movement with the vibrant, all-the-right-moves Countryman. The 2011 Mazda CX-7 remains a good compromise vehicle for small families—especially if you want a driving experience that's closer to that of a sport sedan and can't be seen in a minivan.
