Mazda CX 7 Sports Crossover 2010

Mazda CX-7 2010 was introduced back in March 2009. Mazda has officially announced today that Mazda CX-7 Sports Crossover 2010 will be on sale beginning November 1st with a price tag of £25,785 on the road. Continue reading for high res car pictures and details of the car.

New Mazda CX-7 ‘Sports Crossover’ on sale 1 November

  • New Mazda CX-7 ‘Sports Crossover’ on sale 1 November priced at £25,785 (OTR)
  • New turbocharged 2.2-litre diesel generates 173ps and 400Nm of torque
  • Active Torque 4-wheel drive system and Zoom-Zoom sportscar handling
  • Available in one highly equipped model – the Mazda CX-7 Sport Tech Diesel

The New Mazda CX-7 Sports Crossover delivers a truly unique driving experience by combining drive characteristics more attune to a sports car, with an imposing road-presence and good everyday practicality.  With a powerful and refined 173ps turbo-diesel powertrain, the new CX-7 will take Mazda into a whole new sector of the UK marketplace when it goes on sale in November.

“In the best Mazda tradition, our new Mazda CX-7 enables us to offer a distinctive Sports Crossover that is different from the huge line-up of SUV-type vehicles currently available.  With its sporty  appearance, new CX-7 is more heavily orientated towards a sportscar in its styling and driving dynamics, while offering an SUV-style commanding driving position and a strong road presence that portrays Mazda’s ‘dare to be different’ brand identity,” comments Mazda UK’s Sales & Marketing Director Mark Cameron. 

“The Mazda CX-7’s new turbo diesel engine generates maximum torque of 400Nm from only 2000rpm, with smooth power delivery and real punch from just 1,600rpm, for strong linear acceleration.  Together with a five percent stiffer bodyshell, re-tuned suspension, revised gear ratios and lower cabin noise, new CX-7 is a remarkably refined and sporty driving experience,” adds Cameron.

The new Mazda CX-7 is being marketed in the UK as a single, highly specified model, priced at £25,785 (on the road), in a choice of five colours. 

Inside, the new CX-7 has generous space for five occupants to travel in comfort, while the sports utility-style rear seat functionality and generous boot space (455 litres with the rear seats upright), makes this Mazda an ideal vehicle for multi-activity lifestyles.  

The split rear seats can be folded 60/40 using Mazda’s unique Karakuri system with a one‑touch rear seat back release located in the boot trim side panel.  With the back seats folded, load space becomes 774 litres. 

“I am convinced that there is still plenty of life in the UK’s SUV segment and with the Mazda CX-7 delivering sporty handling and a rewarding driving experience the new model sets us apart from our rivals.   

“The new Mazda CX-7 is not a huge vehicle designed for the country that will be brought into town – it is a Sports Crossover with plenty of attitude, plenty of versatile ability and great dynamics that out-perform the class.  It is the ultimate expression of ‘Zoom-Zoom’ driving excitement in a sophisticated 4-wheel drive sports crossover vehicle,” concludes Cameron.

New adaptations for the UK Market
Manufactured in Japan, the original CX-7 was hugely popular in the USA.  For the European and UK markets the car incorporated several significant changes to meet the specific demands and tastes of local consumers. 

The biggest changes were to the power and drive trains.  The 244ps engine marketed in the USA was replaced by the highly efficient 260ps turbocharged four-cylinder petrol powerunit also featured in the Mazda3 MPS super-hatch model.  The CX-7’s fully-independent suspension set-up was also retuned for European roads to deliver handling agility that was unmatched in this class.

Now, for new Mazda CX-7, the focus switches to providing a diesel engine model suitable to the changing needs of the European market in this growing SUV segment.  Every new CX-7 sold in the UK features a 173ps, 2.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder MZR-CD diesel engine producing up to 400Nm of torque from just 2000rpm, a six-speed manual transmission with an ‘overdrive’ top gear (0.711:1), and Mazda’s unique Active Torque 4-wheel drive system, which distributes up to 50 percent of engine torque to the rear wheels to maintain traction.

This new Mazda combines sensationally spirited performance, thanks to excellent levels of torque, to deliver strong acceleration and a responsive drive, combined with genuine everyday practicality and remarkable refinement.  Meanwhile, combined fuel economy returns 37.7mpg while CO2 emissions are 199g/km.

Generous Equipment, Spacious and Versatile Interior
New Mazda CX-7 has a more dynamic ‘face’ with a larger five-point grille and chrome detailing, a chrome garnish along the bottom of the doors, a larger rear spoiler, new design larger 19-inch alloy wheels and Xenon headlights. 

Inside the CX-7 Sport Tech, there are numerous standard premium features including: leather seats, climate control air-conditioning, cruise control, electric front and rear windows, electric driver’s and front passenger’s heated seats, a bespoke BOSE® premium surround sound audio system with 6-CD autochanger and nine speakers, plus integrated satellite navigation and Bluetooth® technology (that enables wireless operation of both mobile phones and playing MP3 devices through the car’s audio system).

Upgraded safety technologies
Naturally, safety is of paramount concern when Mazda designs and engineers its cars and new CX-7 introduces several new items of ‘active’ safety equipment to help drivers cope with the everyday hazards of motoring.

A new Emergency Stop Signalling (ESS) system automatically activates the hazard warning lights whenever the driver brakes abruptly and heavily. 

Additional safety is provided by the new Rear Vehicle Monitoring system (RVM), previously available only on Mazda6 and new Mazda 3 MPS.  This aid to safe lane-changing uses wide-angle radar units to monitor traffic behind the CX-7 and warns the driver of an approaching vehicle before he/she has a chance to move across into a busy lane by mistake.  The system, which is effective in all weathers, also detects vehicles driving in the ‘blind spot’ area and does not monitor or detect cars following behind in the same lane.

Exploiting the computerised electronics of the four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) system, CX-7 also offers a Traction Control System (TCS), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA).

Like the majority of Mazda models, the CX-7 is equipped with front, side and curtain airbags, front seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters.
