The 2012 Mazda CX-7 comes in two trim levels and with two engines, but even the least pricey 'i' model with the SV trim doesn't feel like a bare-bones vehicle. That model includes 17-inch alloy wheels, whereas the faster 's' model offers 18- or 19-inch wheels. The fancier Touring and Grand Touring trim levels of the 's' model add further features, including chrome trim on the door handles and turn signals integrated into the door mirrors.
The mid-level Touring trim, including popular leather upholstery, is available on both 'i' and 's' models.
The highest-level trim is the Grand Touring package, which includes heated mirrors, automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, a moonroof, SmartKey entry system, xenon High-Intensity Discharge headlamps, and an integrated navigation system with a full-color display. It also includes a Blind-Spot Monitoring system that warns drivers if a vehicle is in an adjacent lane but not visible in the rear-view mirrors.
The only model that doesn't include a Bluetooth hands-free interface is the base SV trim level, and streaming audio via the Bluetooth link is also available. On the higher trim levels, the voice-activated, touch-screen navigation system is optional, as is a premium Bose Centerpoint autio system.
