Mazda CX-7 Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2011 4dr SUV 161-hp 2.5L I4 5-sp shiftable automatic FWD Traded in an F-150. CX-7 is not great but much better than a pick-up. Avg 22-28 mpg.

2008 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD bad fuel economy, I guess thats why 2006-2008 models do have a trip computer but the trip computer was not able. 2009 to present all have same trip computer that provides MPG,distance to empty and somewhat of an improved gas mileage.
2007 4dr SUV turbocharged 244hp 2.3L I4 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD Plenty of performance when needed yet 23 mpg on highway
