New look Mazda CX-7 sports crossover

Mazda’s CX-7 is a 4x4 that is handsome and sporty as well as practical. The car has been updated for the British market with a 2.2 litre diesel engine. The Mazda CX-7 has four wheel capability and some of the attributes of an off roader.

The Mazda CX-7 goes from 0-60mph in under eight seconds and delivers a level of controlled power that's ideal for urban driving. The revised Mazda CX-7 is also the first Japanese passenger car to have a diesel engine fitted with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, which cuts emissions of nitrous oxide (NOx) by 40 per cent. With a six speed manual gearbox the Mazda CX-7 is no slouch with lots of power.

The car has safety features in including traction control system and dynamic stability control and emergency stop signaling which activates the hazard warning lights if the driver brakes abruptly and heavily. Thanks to the compact design of the SCR system, the Mazda CX-7 Diesel offers an identical 455 litres of luggage space as the current model, there is also a 60/40 split rear seat that folds easily and increases the capacity to 774 litres.

Prices for the Mazda CX-7 start at £26,340 on the road.
