He means Sirius!
Mazda is exclusive with their units to be Sirius configured from the factory, and at the dealerships.
By the way; Stern is waaaay funnier on Sirius!
XM is woefully overrated!

Yep, you're right! Get 'em mixed up. I have XM in my Santa Fe, Sirius in my CX7. and I listen to both.

Steve I am in the car business and deal with customers, so it is based on my own experience, I've seen it happen were a lady would not get in the car because she does not like how it looks, but never happened with men. So I would have to persuade you on this one! lol

Vince which one do you enjoy more? Santa/CX7?

Wonder how a Freelander or LR2 would score in that test? The Santa Fe is hardly a mini-ute... it's pretty frickin huge! I looked at them in the spring, and was impressed how far they'd come in recent years - still not my cup of tea though...
I picked up a Land Rover LR3 HSE loaded to the nines. It's about the same size as the Santa Fe, but a bit of a different beast than the category the article was focusing on... still, it would be interesting to throw the LR3 at the reviewer and see what he had to say compared to the rest?

Agreed. Santa Fe is no small SUV.
As for the comparison itself, I read it as three very comptent vehicles, each with its own advantages and downsides, not as which one is better than others. Personally Santa Fe and CX-7 both would fit better for me, with Santa Fe edging out CX-7 just by a hair. I really like the looks of the Santa Fe, and the off-road capability (nothing hardcore of course). Most of all, the layout and the overall design of the Santa Fe are very desriable traits, plus a available third row is a big plus in my book.

As I read the testing review on each of the vehicles, I couldn't help but ponder why Edmunds did not test all three "top of the line models!" The Toyota was discredited because of standard features but they compared a SPORT to A Grand Touring CX-7 and Limited Santa Fe. Possibly because the Limited Rav4's are hard to get a hold of. That's what I'll say.

I looked at the 07 Santa Fe want to buy it but no xm. How do you have XM in yours? Is XM going to offered in the later 07 models? I too will not buy a car if i dont like the way it looks, I drove the RDX loved it but way over priced. Dont like the look of the CX-7 looks too cheap in the front. Let me know about the XM
