The Mazda CX-7 is a mid-size crossover SUV that was produced by Mazda between 2006 and 2012. It was discontinued as a result of low sales numbers and the success of its siblings, the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9.
There was only one generation released during its time on the market. It featured a 5-door layout with either front-wheel or Mazda’s Active Torque Split all-wheel drive depending on the selected trim.
Powertrains included two gasoline engines and a single diesel option. These were a turbocharged 2.3-liter MZR L3-VDT DISI inline-4 and a 2.5-liter MZR L5-VE inline-4 for the petrol engines and a 2.2-liter MZR-CD inline-4 diesel.
These engines stand out from Mazda’s Skyactiv range that is found in today’s models.
These engines were then mated with either a 6-speed manual or the choice of two automatics, being a 5-speed or 6-speed automatic.
Trim options consisted of four different levels. These are the base iSV, iSport, sTouring, and finally sGrand Touring. Interestingly, both the sTouring and sGrand Touring were outfitted with the smaller engine, despite being the upper trim levels. However, these did represent the turbocharged options.
The CX-7 received a small update during its time, which provided restyling to the grille and other small features.
In 2021, it received a 4-star safety rating from the Euro NCAP, which is lower than some of Mazda’s other offerings like the CX-5.
