Mazda CX-7 i Sport 4-Door SUV (2.5L 4cyl 5A)

Typical Monthly Payment New: $374
Typical Monthly Payment Certified Pre-Owned: $378
Total Savings Over Term: $240

The Mazda CX-7 may not be the most practical car on the road but it looks good and offers the driver an exciting ride. It also has generous passenger and cargo space. The downside is the fuel economy, which at 20 miles per gallon in the city and 28 miles per gallon on the highway is the worst in its class. Better, perhaps, to focus on its braking and handling, both of which live up to Mazda’s solid reputation.

The typical monthly payment for a certified pre-owned model is $378, as opposed to $374 for a new one. This brings the total savings on a new model to $240.
