2006 Mazda CX-7 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced details of its much-anticipated upcoming 2007 Mazda CX-7 crossover sport-utility vehicle (SÚV). The company also confirmed that the car will make its public debut at the upcoming Greater Los Angeles Auto Show here, and the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2006.
The all-new Mazda CX-7 is the first of three Mazda vehicles that are being designed and engineered specifically for the North American market.

Mazda's new five-seat CX-7 is a refreshing departure from the fleet of traditional SÚV's currently plying American roads. Produced on entirely Mazda-derived platform architecture, Mazda CX-7 embodies an astute blend of sports car verve and SÚV practicality, resulting in a fun-to-drive SÚV wîth Mazda's trademark 'Soul of a Sportscar'. It is a vehicle that brings together performance and design like never before. The Mazda CX-7 is just right for adventurous couples driven by the urge for discovery.

'The North American market continues to play a pivotal role in Mazda Motor Corporation's global future,' said Jim O'Sullivan, president and CEO, MNAO. 'Vehicles such as CX-7 and others in the pipeline, designed and engineered specifically for the North American market, will make Mazda an important and influential force in the . This vehicle represents everything a Mazda SÚV should be: powerful, great styling, detailed craftsmanship and fun to drive. Mazda at its finest'.

The distinctive exterior design of the Mazda CX-7 is an extension of the sports car motif from the 2005 MX-Crossport concept and the RX-01 concept introduced in 1995 and carries over much of the strong styling emotion brought on by Mazda's current RX-8 sports car as well. Prominent front fenders, A-pillars rooted at the body's leading edge, and Mazda's signature five-pointed grille clearly register this new model as a Mazda. The eighteen-inch aluminum wheels and tires proclaim Mazda CX-7's Zoom-Zoom intentions and immediately signal that this is a vehicle built for drivers.

An interior design, also previewed by the MX-Crossport concept, fulfills every car enthusiast's innate desire to jump in and drive. The three-dial instrument cluster, sports car inspired high-mounted shifter, and firm-fitting front bucket seats are configured for spirited motoring. The instrument panel consists of a unique 'double-roof' structure, in which a small 'roof' over the meter cluster is positioned just in front of a large 'roof' that extends across the entire instrument panel. The 60-40 split rear seat accommodates three people in comfort and quickly converts to an extension of the 29.9-cu. ft. cargo hold, bringing capacity up to 58.6-cu. ft. The 39-inch-long rear compartment (seats up) offers more stowage space than some larger SÚVs.

Matching the sporty appearance is Mazda CX-7's powerful and dynamic performance. Mazda CX-7 is powered by a turbocharged and intercooled 2.3-liter four-cylinder direct-injection gasoline engine that produces a hearty 244 horsepower at 5,000 rpm. While key powertrain features are shared wîth the recently launched MAZDASPEED6, the Mazda CX-7 is exclusively tuned to deliver 258 lb-ft of torque at a remarkably low 2,500 rpm for healthy throttle response. With Mazda's six-speed Sport AT transmission and at least 99-percent of the maximum torque available all the way to 5,000 rpm where peak horsepower is delivered, Mazda CX-7 performs as if there's an engine twice the size under the hood. Furthermore, the Mazda CX-7 is estimated to deliver over 23 mpg in combined driving.

A sturdy unitized body structure, fully independent suspension, and four-wheel ventilated disc brakes wîth standard four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) and Traction Control System (TCS), underlie Mazda CX-7's athletic road manners. Customers may select the driveline best suited to their needs: Front-Wheel Drive or Mazda's Active Torque-Split All-Wheel Drive. With Active Torque-Split All-Wheel Drive, a computer controlled coupling feeds up to 50-percent of the engine's torque to the rear wheels for exceptional handling whether the driving conditions are dry and fast or slippery and paced.

Mazda CX-7 arrives in the spring of 2006 as a 2007 model.
