For the 2010 model year, Mazda increases the CX-7 model line by adding a fourth trim, as well as a new engine type. The price range for the CX-7 now runs from an acceptable $22,300 for a base SV model (including destination fee) up to a base price of $33,635 for a Grand Touring before options are considered.
The 2010 Mazda CX-7 is decently well equipped, even in its base version. Cars.com notes that all Mazda CX-7 models feature “standard keyless entry” and full power accessories, as well as a “4.1-inch color TFT information display,” according to Autoblog. The base sound system on the CX-7 includes a CD player and MP3-compatible interface, as well as an auxiliary jack, while the top-level Touring and Grand Touring models get such niceties as automatic climate control and standard leather seats. Autoblog adds that the 2010 Mazda CX-7 features “Bluetooth for both phones and audio,” although the standard Bluetooth is not available on the base SV trim level.
The automotive press railed against last year’s CX-7 for being overpriced, so for the 2009 Mazda CX-7 Mazda has added more to the options list and kept the standard features intact. The options list is accordingly extensive, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com appreciate the CX-7’s available extras. Cars.com states that some of the options include “heated front seats, an optional power moonroof, and optional nine-speaker Bose audio system.” The Bose system features Centerpoint and comes with Bose’s renowned acoustical engineering. For those prone to losing their way, Mazda now offers a touch-screen, voice-activated navigation system on the CX-7’s upper trims.
