CX-7 in the Market

The CX-7 isn't the first crossover on the market by a long shot, and there are a slew of others that will join it shortly. The Ford Edge borrows a lot of Mazda technology and will be out this fall, along with a new and enlarged Mitsubishi Outlander.

Toyota's RAV4 is the segment's reigning king, and the Nissan Murano has also filled the space admirably with a mix of handling characteristics and stylish Japanese looks similar to the CX-7. Mazda's entry tops the Murano due to its more stylish interior and much more engaging driving feel. For those who want to make a statement with their crossover, the CX-7 is an affordable option.
