Our Fleet Test Drive Review: Mazda CX-7 - 8th Report

Date: 18 November 2010   |   Author: Tristan Young


Barely two weeks after I had my winter tyres from Continental fitted and the weather has turned nasty.

So it seems only fair to give some initial feedback. Even before the weather turned cold, the tyres were proving themselves in the wet. On a 300-mile round trip using a totally sodden M1 they were noticeably better at tackling standing water. Where the standard tyres would have started to aquaplane, the winters cut through. In the dry and cold there's a touch more road noise, but given the Mazda's superb refinement this is not a big issue.

Now I'm just waiting for the snow to arrive.
