Our Fleet Test Drive Review: Mazda CX-7 - 7th Report
12 November 2010
Author: Tristan Young
The Mazda CX-7's 18-inch alloys have looked good from day one, but having now washed the car several times, it's only now I'm appreciating how easy they are to clean. There are no tight spaces for brake-dust to build up, which means a quick wipe with a sponge brings the alloys back to as-new condition.
I've also been impressed at how resistant to kerbing the CX-7 has been. After a recent parallel parking failure where I could have sworn I'd damaged a wheel, I was amazed to see both it and the high-profile tyre unscathed. It's not something I'll be relying on, but it's reassuring to know.
