The Mazda CX-7 is one of those cars that never really made it on to the radar in the UK. It's a shame because it's excellent. Very similar underneath to the Ford Kuga, the early cars only have 2.3 petrol power but are usefully cheap.
The Mazda CX-7 has the best handling of any small 4X4. Better even than the Kuga on which it's based. The ride is good as well, as is the cabin. Accommodation can be tight but there's more than enough for 3 kids and all their gubbins.
The 2.2 diesel engine is the same unit fitted to countless Fords and the Land Rover Freelander. It's very good but the price premium is too high. Go petrol - the 2.3 turbo is well suited to the CX-7.
On earlier cars you are stuck with the 2.3 petrol and manual box. Luckily that's the best and cheapest combination for this car. Spec is pretty much the same for all models.
Pay no more than £12,500 for a 3 year old, petrol 2.3 CX-7. Or, if you like to waste money, the cheapest comparable diesel will cost you £6000 more.
Diesel cars are best bought any time really. Petrols drop off a cliff from day one. Get a petrol at 3 years.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Mazda Cx-7 you would aim to buy a 6 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.
Diesel Mazda Cx-7 cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Mazda Cx-7 cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Mazda Cx-7 cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
