For March break this year, the Grant family did things a bit a bit differently than we have in the past. We went somewhere for a change! In fact, we actually took two road trips. First we piled 4 of us into the 6 passenger Mazda5 for a blast to Niagara Falls and then we loaded all 5 seats of a CX-7 and brought along our 100 lb canine to make like Obama by heading towards Ottawa and the Byward Market.
White is a tough colour choice for many vehicles, as it just doesn’t seem to work on some shapes. When I pulled into Mazda Canada to swap rides, I was stunned by just how incredible the CX-7 looks draped in Crystal White Pearl. From the flowing curves to the shape of the tinted glass, the whole package just looked dead sexy. Certainly hotter looking than most would expect from a family hauler. With chrome accents in just the right places, 18″ alloy wheels and dual stainless tailpipes the CX-7 GT looks much more sport than utility. Surprisingly, Mazda’s smaller of 2 CX’s handles the utility quite nicely too, thank you very much.
