Mazda CX-7 five-seat crossover SUV launched in Japan

The concept for the Mazda CX-7 is a “sport crossover SUV”: the fusion of sports car and SUV. The Mazda CX-7 boasts refined and sophisticated styling that reflects its sports car roots, with satisfying power provided by a 2.3-liter direct injection turbocharged engine complemented by a six-speed Activematic transmission. The Mazda CX-7 comes outfitted with advanced features for safety and convenience like Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) safety technology to help prevent lateral skidding, a parking assist system (with a side monitor and rearview guide monitor), an immobilizer and burglar alarm, a 30GB HDD navigation system, and cruise control as standard equipment. A choice of two model grades are available, the Mazda CX-7 and CX-7 cruising package.

Both feature Mazda’s 2.3-liter MZR DISI turbocharged engine and six-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission (Activematic). Each model grade has a front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive version. The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices range from 3,060,000 yen ($25,935) to 3,660,000 yen ($31,015) including consumption tax. The Mazda CX-7 goes on sale nationwide at all Mazda, Mazda Anfini and Mazda Autozam dealers from today. The monthly sales target is 380 units.
