Safety

The CX-7 offers front side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags for front and rear passengers. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety hasn't tested the CX-7 yet, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it a five-star rating for front and side-impact tests, its highest ratings. 2008 model update: Even with a full year of sales under its belt, the Mazda CX-7 has not been crash tested by the IIHS.

The car also comes with all-disc antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and traction control, all standard.
